ETP shaft-locking bushings from Zero-Max produce accurate and concentric mounting compared to mechanical shaft-locking bushings. The devices lock into position gears, pulleys, and sprockets. They incorporate a double-walled sleeve that encapsulates a pressure medium. When the actuation screw is tightened, it forces the bushing’s inner and outer wall to expand uniformly against the shaft and hub of the mounted component. The result is concentricity to 0.001 in TIR (total indicator reading). The bushings are suitable where repeated mounting and dismantling of components is required. The ETP Classic operates from 40 to 11,413 lb·ft, while the ETP Express handles ranges from 40 to 6400 lb·ft.

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.
