Privately held Dardi is the world's leading waterjet supplier for the "economy” segment of the market, and the largest volume producer of waterjets in Asia with three factories located near Nanjing, China. Flow announced its intent to purchase the minority position in November, having previously introduced Dardi as the new supplier of its economy segment product line. By establishing a minority equity position, Flow has formalized its relationship with Dardi.

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.
