Mitsui Seiki’s Vertex 550-5X five-axis vertical CNC machining center has a casting design that provides an ultra-rigid machine structure. A unique gear drive system for the A and C rotary axes provides high-speed radial performance and overall drive system stiffness. In addition, the trunnion tilt axis, A, has an ample dual side support rigid construction. The machine’s linear axes move the spindle only, and the motion of the workpiece is by the rotary axes only, features intended to provide improved control of machine dynamics. The unit measures 7 x 11 ft. The X, Y, Z-axes work envelope is 21.6 x 23.6 x 17.7 in. All three move at 1890 in/min. With the A and C rotary and tilt axes, the machine provides a total of five integrated axes of motion for virtually one-setup machining of complex workpieces requiring maximum rigidity and accuracy.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
France's Dassault Aviation and India's Reliance Group announced in late September 2016 the creation of a joint venture (JV) in India called Dassault Reliance Aerospace. With this announcement came news that the Dassault Reliance Aerospace JV will be a key player in the execution of offset obligations as a part of the 36 Rafale fighter jet purchase agreement that was signed between France and India on September 23, 2016 and is valued at around €7.87 billion, or about Rs. 59,000 crore.
One of the biggest issues in bringing forward new designs is the length of time that it takes to agree to a new specification, research and evaluate the alternative features and configurations, and then embark on a development program that will take the design to flight testing and ultimately operational service.
