Spirit AeroSystems will participate in a joint-venture partnership between several major aviation companies to develop and implement a composite and metal bond component repair station in the Asia-Pacific region. Spirit will partner with Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Co. Ltd., and its subsidiary, TAECO, along with Oklahoma-based First Wave MRO Inc. to establish a regional service center located near TAECO’s facility in Xiamen, China. Called Taikoo Spirit AeroSystems Composite Co., the service center will provide repair services for airlines and aircraft operators across the Asia-Pacific region. Construction of the new facility is under way, with completion and startup anticipated in mid-2009. Also joining the new venture will be Cathay Pacific Airways and China Airlines, two of the region’s leading air carriers. The two companies will bring their fleet component repair and overhaul business and logistical support to the joint venture.

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.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
