GF AgieCharmilles’ Micron high-speed machining centers, which offer process-reliable tool measurement on the machine tool, include the HSM 400 LP Precision, HSM 400U LP Precision, and HSM 500 LP Precision. Intelligent Tool Measurement (ITM) provides optical tool measurement at full spindle speed. ITM records the tool tip with modern image sensors and then uses software to clean up the image, resulting in the ability to obtain a tool measurement with an absolute Z-reference in the micron range. The machines possess good thermal control characteristics, with systems cooling the drive groups in a targeted manner. Each of the linear axes, as well as the rotation/tilt unit, has its own cooling circuit. The Opticool concept, which also includes cooling of the spindle nose, allows for high-temperature stability. Quick dispersion of heat results in geometric stability that provides high repeat accuracy in axial movement.

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.
