    The Mexican assembler DINA has designed a trolley-type electric bus, the first electricity-powered vehicle with a Mexican brand, which is currently under the testing process, Carlos Rivero Flores, the company’s Sustainable Massive Transportation Executive, informed. The first model is only waiting for the permits application stage to be completed to start tests, which will take place in Mexico City if no changes are made to the project.

    “We are checking where we can run the tests; there are not manly places where trolley-type electric vehicles are used in Mexico. We are filing the applications and it may be in Mexico City”, Mr. Rivero explained.

    These are 36-passenger, flatbed, no step vehicles, for easy access by people with reduced mobility.
    While Rivero acknowledged that the cost of this type of vehicle is higher, the investment is compensated by reduced emissions and fossil fuel savings. “As well as by its durability; trolleys currently in circulation have been on the road for about 20 years and require little maintenance”, Rivero Flores pointed-out.
    Once the test period has been completed, DINA will analyze the feasibility of serial assembly, especially after determining if the government may be interested in buying these vehicles

    Mekatronis - HomeA MEKATRONIS iniciou suas atividades no ramo de fabricação de Routers CNC em meados de 2003, naquele tempo ainda utilizando-se de tecnologia rudimentar em suas primeiras maquinas destinadas principalmente para uso próprio na fabricação de artesanatos em madeira e instrumentos musicais.


    Ao longo do tempo a empresa apaixonou-se pelo fascinante mundo da automação e decidu então dedicar-se exclusivamente à produção de maquinas CNC abandonando assim todas as atividades paralelas. Não demorou muito para que a qualidade das máquinas superasse todas as expectativas iniciais. Hoje a MEKATRONIS orgulha-se de ser a empresa que mais produz e vende Routers CNC no Brasil com aproximadamente 8 - 10 equipamentos de grande porte entregues todos os meses para clientes de todas as partes do Brasil.

    The MEKATRONIS started its activities in manufacturing CNC Routers in mid-2003, at the time still using rudimentary technology in their first machines designed primarily for captive use in the manufacture of wooden handicrafts and musical instruments.


    Over time the company fell in love with the fascinating world of automation and decidu then devote himself exclusively to the production of CNC machines thus abandoning all parallel activities. It did not take long for the quality of the machines surpass all expectations. Today MEKATRONIS proud to be the company that produces and sells CNC Routers in Brazil with approximately 8-10 large equipment delivered every month for customers in all parts of Brazil.

    Frisa Forjados reported it has signed a new long-term supply agreement with Rolls-Royce Plc, for forged rings and casings in support of current and future aircraft engine programs. The contract has a value of approximately $200 million, according to Frisa, though the length and other terms were not reports.

    Frisa forges seamless rolled rings in carbon and stainless steels, titanium and super alloy metals. In addition to aerospace forgings, it has customers in the power-generation, oil-and-gas, construction and mining, wind, and general industrial markets.

    Frisa has three plants in the Monterrey metropolitan area, and is a joint-venture partner with Scot Forge in Ringmasters Manufacturing LLC, in Wayne, MI.

    “With this latest agreement, Frisa once again continues to strengthen its position as a leading supplier of forged rings to the aerospace industry,” stated CEO Eduardo Garza.
    “Our relationship with Rolls-Royce is founded on many years working with them to provide specialist components for their aerospace and energy business sectors. We are especially pleased to build upon our role as a strategic supplier to Rolls-Royce in support of the Trent family of engines”.

    The agreement with Rolls-Royce will support the Trent XWB and Trent 900 engine programs.
    TheTrent XWB and 900 are variants of Rolls-Royce’s high-bypass turbofan engines, notably supplied to Airbus for the A350 and Boeing for its 787 Dreamliner, and other commercial aircraft programs. Rolls also assigned a long-term contract recently with another forging group, Firth Rixson Ltd., also for seamless rings.

    Frisa’s new contract is its second long-term agreement announced this year. In March it reported a contract with Rolls-Royce’s competitor Pratt & Whitney, for forged rings and casings, to support that company’s PurePower PW1000G turbofan engine program. The P&W contract is valued at more than $150 million.

    Below is a translated article from Aerospacio. The original article can be seen in Spanish at:Aeroespacio - Finalizó la Revisión Crítica de Diseño del KC-390

    Between 11 and 22 March, the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) and Embraer Defense and Security successfully completed this important stage in the development of the KC-390 military transport, whose start of production is expected this year.

    During the Critical Design Review confirmed the overall structural and aerodynamic configuration as well as the architecture and installation of the systems. The project thus reaches the maturity needed to begin the detailed design and fabrication of prototype aircraft.

    A delegation from the FAB moved to Embraer facilities in Sao Jose dos Campos and closely checked the tools and models used to develop the KC-390 simulator as engineering and life-size model of the cockpit .

    According to Embraer, the manufacture of the first pieces of the prototypes will begin soon and all project activities will focus on the first flight of the aircraft scheduled for the second half of 2014. The KC-390 is the largest aircraft designed and built by the Brazilian aviation industry.

    India’s Mahindra Group and the Spanish auto parts supplier CIE Automotive S. A. agreed to pool an extensive list of operations to form a new global organization with total annual billings estimated at $3 billion.

    The two groups propose combining Mahindra Systech -- the parts business for Mahindra Group, a truck and off-road equipment OEM – with CIE Automotive’s forging group, which manufactures automotive components and parts in Europe, Brazil, North America, and China.

    By way of the Systech portfolio, the group being established will have a high capacity for producing automotive forgings, in India, Germany, and England. Through the CIA Automotive assets, it will have forging operations in Brazil, Lithuania, and Spain. The range of operations includes hot forging, warm forging, and cold forging, and the products cover the range of automotive applications, from engine and powertrain parts, to chassis and steering system components, to structural elements.

    Mahindra Systech also includes Mahindra Forgings Ltd., Mahindra Ugine Steel Co. Ltd., Mahidra Composites Ltd., Mahindra Hinoday Industries Ltd., and Mahindra Gears Ltd. It’s one of India’s largest automotive component manufacturers, especially for automotive and light truck crankshafts in India, and heavy-truck forgings in Europe.

    A variety of other production technologies will be contained in the new group from both partners’ holdings, including metal castings, plastic parts, stampings, gears and other precision machined parts, composite parts, painted elements, and roof systems, among others.

    CIE Automotive will invest $116 million to hold a 51% stake in the new company, and Mahindra Group will acquire a 13.5% share in CIE for a reported $126 million. That will make it the second-largest stakeholder in CIE, with two directors on the corporate board.

    The remaining shares of the new business will be held by institutional investors and stockholders.

    To execute the combination, Mahindra will consolidate all of its auto parts businesses into the Mahindra Forgings Ltd. unit, and this will be renamed Mahindra CIE Automotive.

    Mahindra emphasized the importance of establishing a global manufacturing presence, as OEM’s passenger vehicle platforms become more standardized, and as the heavy truck market expands. It also noted that the new group would have an immediate strength in emerging economies, including India and Central and South America.

    Finally, it underscored the importance of creating a portfolio of operations with multiple manufacturing capabilities.

    "Eight years ago, we at Mahindra set out to build an Indian automotive supplier with a global footprint and this drove a series of acquisitions in India and Europe for us,” stated Mahindra Group chairman Anand Mahindra. “We have been listening closely to our customers who have asked to step up our globalization efforts and follow them around the world.

    “This ‘grand alliance’ with CIE enables us to ‘rise’ above competition, quickly extends our reach into new geographies, and grow our collective product portfolio in the coming years,” the chairman continued.
