Sandvik Coromant’s expansions to its milling product lines include new tool diameters and innovative insert grades and geometries. The CoroMill 490 system offers additional tool diameters ranging from 0.787 to 4.921 in. Insert geometries introduced in the GC2030, GC2040, and GC1030 grades offer increased performance in stainless steel machining. The CoroMill 345, a 45° face mill, features inserts for cast iron machining and a mirror-finishing geometry for steel. Cylindrical and Weldon shank cutters will also be released. By using inserts with eight cutting edges, the CoroMill 345 provides economic, reliable performance in applications ranging from roughing to mirror-finishing. It comes in diameters of 1.5 to 10 in. The CoroMill 316 includes the 3/8 to 0.984-in diameter range, with an extended range of carbide milling heads for application with new chamfering radius and larger-diameter corner radius end mills. Carbide shanks will complement the existing steel shank assortment.

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.
The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
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.
