    • Carbon fiber gets bigger footprint
      Manufacturers strive for the Holy Grail of composites manufacturing: consistency and repeatability.
    • Safety on the floor
      Once add-ons that brought almost as many problems as benefits, safety techniques are now being designed into equipment before start-up.
    • Taking measures of the machine
      New requirements and technologies advance the art of test and sensing.
    • Looking, listening, recording, analyzing
      HUMS is established as an integral part of aviation's safety network, but more standardization is needed to broaden its effectiveness.
