Renishaw’s RESOLUTE optical encoder system achieves 27-bit resolution at 36,000 rpm. The system offers good dirt immunity while delivering resolution of 1 nm at up to 100 m/s, for both linear and angle encoding applications. Using a single-track optical scale, it acquires absolute position immediately upon switch-on, without battery backup, thus simplifying machine design by eliminating the need for reference runs. The device is suited for high-performance lathes as well as slower moving axes requiring high levels of precision and motion control integrity. It uses sophisticated optics to read a fine-pitch, 30-µm scale, resulting in low noise levels with jitter less than 10 nm rms for good positional stability. Enhanced detection technology provides a low subdivisional err­or of ±40 nm, resulting in better surface finish of machined parts from CNC machine tools, better scanning and velocity control, and solid servo stiffness on linear motors or rotary direct-drives when holding position.­

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.
