On September 24, 2016, TZTEK held a new product launch in Suzhou and announced that it had achieved a major breakthrough in the project of “Development and Application of Compound High-precision Coordinate Measuring Instruments” in the “Special National Major Scientific Instruments and Equipment Development Project”. Its accuracy is close to the target of 0.3μm, marking a success of the major independent innovation in the field of China instrumentation, and meaning that China has become the third country in the world after Germany and Japan to master the same high-precision coordinate measurement technology.
In recent years, China's precision measuring instrument industry has developed rapidly, but high-precision precision measuring instruments still need to be imported. Although domestic universities and research institutes have made great achievements in scientific research on high-precision measuring instruments, compared with developed countries, the core technology of the instrument industry is weak, and the market share and added value are low. During the "12th Five-Year Plan" period, the Ministry of Science and Technology launched the "National Special Scientific Instruments Development Project", emphasizing on market-oriented, application-oriented, and industrial-oriented, and supporting the development of major scientific instruments and equipment with market promotion prospects, including precision optical instruments and systems, which enables domestic companies to develop and promote more efficiently and rapidly.
TZTEK is a science and technology enterprise dedicated to the development of ultra-high-precision measurement instruments for sub-micron scale. The "Compound High-precision Coordinate Measuring Instrument Development and Application" project led by it was selected as a national major scientific instrument and equipment development project in 2013. The project was initiated by TZTEK, and jointly participated by the National Institute of Metrology, China,Tianjin University, Beijing University of Technology, Aviation Industry Corporation of China, Ltd., Beijing Institute of Aeronautical Materials, Academy of Opto-electronics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Chengdu Tool Research Institute Co., Ltd., and other universities and research institutions, aiming to develop a compound high-precision coordinate measuring instrument that has reached the international advanced level in China, with a measurement precision of up to 0.3 μm.
The Project of “Development and Application of Composite High-precision Coordinate Measurement Instrument” has achieved major breakthroughs and innovations in the key technical fields of the ultra-precision three-axis motion platform and the high-precision composite detection system, and has initially realized 5-axis space measurement. The positioning accuracy of the machine reaches sub-micron level. Breakthroughs have also been achieved in the field of multi-probe calibration and data fusion, and 21-item error compensation. The accuracy of the instrument has approached the final target of 0.3 μm. Synchronous with technology R&D, the project has also carried out several studies on specific measurement methods for the fields of materials engineering, tool manufacturing, and precision measurement. Since the project was developed, it has applied for 20 invention patents, published 7 papers, and applied for 3 software copyrights.
TZTEK, always rooted in modern industry, intelligent industry, and future industrial fields, attaches great importance to innovation, and undertakes multiple science and technology projects at or above the provincial level. From the image measurement instrument to automation industry technology, TZTEK has always been committed to providing industrial automatic and intelligent products and solutions for precision manufacturing, promoting the development of high-precision measurement technology and serving customers relying on its leading capacity in technology R&D .
