Bombardier Aerospace was able to achieve a 91% savings on setup time and total saving of 81% on cycle time by incorporating a system from Advanced Machine & Engineering in a fabrication process for its Learjet Models 40, 45, and 60. Bombardier was running 240 different parts through a cell comprised of four horizontal four-axis machines with a 28-pallet system and one vertical five-axis machine with an eight-pallet system. By incorporating AME's subplates with hardened precision bushings and hardened threaded inserts on a 2-in system with full-grid tombstones, the company was able to run 800 different parts through two cells and reach its Six Sigma goals.

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.
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.
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.
Improvements to Airbus A320 passenger air nozzles could potentially contribute to program-wide benefits.
