Seco Tools’ milling and drilling tooling solutions address the range of composite materials used by manufacturers in the aerospace, automotive, and other industries. Tools include Jabro end mills and Feedmax drills. The Jabro line features five new cutter geometries, designed to prevent delamination and fiber shattering across a range of processes. The tools use Dura diamond coating to resist the abrasion that impedes the performance of traditional end mills. Feedmax drills offer superior hole quality and productivity in composites and stacked materials. Tools in the line contain sharp, optimized geometries designed to minimize delamination during hole entry and exit while achieving excellent chip breaking and evacuation. The newest additions to the line include the C1 for carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) and C2 for stacked materials composed of CFRP and aluminum or titanium.

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.
