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.

NASA has selected proposals for the creation of two multi-disciplinary, university-led Space Technology Research Institutes (STRIs) that will focus on the development of technologies critical to extending human presence deeper into our solar system. The new STRIs will bring together researchers from various disciplines and organizations to collaborate on the advancement of cutting-edge technologies in bio-manufacturing and space infrastructure.
