Lathe with automated parts loader

  • 05-Sep-2008 03:24 EDT

The SL-20APL from Haas Automation is a compact lathe with an integrated automatic parts loader that automatically picks up parts from an external tray and loads them into the lathe for unattended turning or flips parts automatically for double-ended machining. The unit has a maximum cutting capacity of 10.3 x 20 in and maximum swing of 23 in over the front apron. Standard bar capacity is 2 in. The machine's 20-hp vector dual-drive spindle spins to 4000 rpm and provides 154 lb·ft of torque for heavy cutting. Other options include a big-bore version for increased bar capacity to 3 in, live tooling with full C axis, high-pressure coolant systems, and a hard drive with Ethernet interface.

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.
