The Key Laboratory for Precision & Non-traditional Machining of Ministry of Education was approved by the Ministry of Education in November 2003, and was ratified to open to the public at home and overseas in July 2007 with the Ministry's acceptance. In the field of Engineering, the Laboratory has been ranked first in the evaluation of Key Laboratories of Ministry of Education for two consecutive times.
Facing the frontiers of Machine Manufacturing and the development needs for high-end equipment manufacturing in national strategic emerging industries, the Laboratory mainly focuses on bottlenecks restricting the advancement of high-end equipment manufacturing. It lays emphasis on scientific research and technological innovation concerning the following four sectors: precision/ultra-precision machining theory and technology,non-traditional machining theory and technology, digital control of precision measurement and processing, micro-system and micro-manufacturing technology. It aims to cultivate high-quality and high-level innovative talents and to provide theoretical and technical supportsfor the development of China's high-end equipment manufacturing technology.
The Laboratory has a highly qualified faculty. It now has 65 permanent staff, including two academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, one academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, three Changjiang Scholars Distinguished Professors, three winners of the National Fund for Distinguished Young Scientists, three leading talents of the National "Ten Thousand Talents Program", and fourteen national young talents. It also has one National Innovation Research Group, one team in key areas of the Innovative Talent Promotion Program of the Ministry of Science and Technology, and one Innovation Team of the Ministry of Education.
The Laboratory has undertaken a large number of national scientific research tasks including the Major National Scientific Research Projects (973 projects), the National Key Research and Development Program, National Science and Technology Major Project, and key programs of National Natural Science Fund. It has won one First Grade National Prize for Science and Technology Progress Award (Innovative Team Award), two firstprizesofNational Technology Invention Awards, three secondprizesofNational Technology Invention Awards and fourteen provincial first prizes.Numerous research results have been transferred and applied in research institutes and enterprises in the fields of aerospace, equipment manufacturing, etc., and contributed to major national scientific and technological projects such as the launch of Long March 5 rocket, the first flight of the homemade passenger aircraft C919, and the landing oftheYutu lunar rover.It has solved key technical problems in fundamental theories and major/key projects in the field of advanced manufacturing technology and made significant contributions to the progress of high-end equipment manufacturing technology in China. Now, the Laboratory has become one of the bases with the strongest comprehensive strength in applied basic research and technological innovation in precision and non-traditional machining processing in China.
