The seven-axis Viper 1200 CNC fiber-placement system is a compact version of the larger Viper 3000. The system extends the full benefits of computer-controlled fiber placement to makers of smaller, highly contoured structural aircraft composite parts, such as tail and wing spars, pivot shafts, and flex beams. Viper 1200 provides a one-step fabrication process for the manufacture of simple or complex, symmetrical or asymmetrical, solid or core sandwich advanced composite parts.
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
