The EOSINT M280 machine from EOS is an additive manufacturing system for metal components. The machine maximizes part quality and reproducibility while improving cost-effectiveness and user-friendliness. Its technological advancements compared to the previous version include a 400-W fiber laser option to melt more metal powder per second for shorter build times and higher system productivity. An increase in the maximum build height to 325 mm, compared with 215 mm for the M 270, allows production of taller parts. This is useful for hybrid part building, a concept used for prototype tooling, in which complex parts are produced by building additional material on top of a prefabricated part. Optimized gas management includes a high-velocity laminar flow of protective gas across the build area combined with a high-capacity recirculating filter system for more uniform process conditions and stable melting behavior, even over long periods and with higher laser power. The system incorporates the Part Property Management concept and supports 10 series of materials, including EOS NickelAlloy IN625.

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.
