GE Aviation adds facility in China

  • 10-Mar-2009 11:34 EDT
GE Aviation has opened a new systems manufacturing facility in Suzhou, China. The expansion covers 18,600 m², and workers there will be capable of producing autoclaved composite parts, mechanical fabrications, structure assembly, and civil aircraft actuation systems. Current plans are to ramp up Chinese labor in the new factory to more than 200 employees in 2009. The facility is a strategic focus in support of key customer requirements, including parts for Boeing’s 737, 777, and 787; Airbus's A320, A330, and A340; and China’s emerging ARJ21 regional jet. Future plans include the addition of an electronics assembly and test capability.

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