The VMC 4020 FX from MAG Fadal raises performance in precision machining of short-run, high-volume applications. The system combines a 1219 x 508 mm table with a maximum table load of 1651 kg; 15,000 rpm air/oil spindle; and Infimatic Freedom NC 200 control featuring a special Performance Package. The high-speed spindle enables faster axis feeds and finer finishes, while air/oil injection yields the extended duty cycles needed for continuous production runs. The robust C-frame architecture includes wide-base, heavily ribbed, cast-iron construction and integral flame-hardened box ways with ETA+ Steinmeyer dual-mounted ball screws, providing excellent vibration damping to deliver heavy cuts with tolerances to ±5 µm. XYZ travels of 1016 x 508 x 508 mm allow maximum processing flexibility and handle multiple part setup operations. Designed for metal-cutting machine tool applications, the system's NC 200 control is configured with a high-performance processor and delivers 1000 blocks per second to perform precise 2-D and 3-D contouring cuts at higher feeds without lag, dwell, or run-on.

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.

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.
