Precision instruments "printed" out Nanoimprint technology for high-end manufacturing

In the Dr. Chengyang Pioneer Park, Wan Tianwei, a Doctor of Management, and a German Doctor of Engineering, Ji Ran, use nano-imprint technology to produce batches of precision parts, just like printing parts. October 24. Relevant parties have learned that their technology has broken the monopoly of Switzerland and Japan and can be applied to many high-end manufacturing fields such as robot bodies, precision instruments, high-end mechanical watches, navigation, and fuzes.

Semiconductor process replaces traditional machine tools

In the Qingdao Doctor Pioneer Park on Xingyang Road, Chengyang District, Wan Tianwei held a palm-sized display board to show customers the results of precision instrument printing-sub-millimeter precision parts. On this display board, various small parts are arranged delicately, which seem to be only one-tenth the size of the pinky nail. "These are all ultra-precision watch parts manufactured by us using nano-imprint technology. According to the traditional processing technology, very precise processing equipment is required, and at least a dozen processes are required." Wan Tianwei said, and now using this printing technology The technology requires only one production line to be mass-produced, which greatly reduces production costs.

Ji Ran said that the greatest value of precision parts is to solve the huge gap between my country, Switzerland and Japan in ultra-precision machine tool processing technology. The use of semiconductor technology to replace the short board of ultra-precision machine tools directly produces many high-precision precision parts that could not be produced before. Help many parts that require precision parts to overcome bottlenecks. At the same time, the advantage of this technology is that it can realize the processing of parts of various shapes through a production line. As long as users provide standardized product CAD drawings, high-precision parts with various shapes can be produced.

"Actually, this is equivalent to the printing of precision parts." Wan Tianwei explained in a popular way that this technology is to control precision parts by nanoimprinting technology, and grow specific shapes and specific shapes according to the envisaged pattern and growth method. The strength is like printing these precision parts. At present, Dr. Ji Ran has built a production line in Germany and provided parts for some Swiss watches. Now they want to move this production line back to China to realize overtaking in the field of precision parts processing.

The two Ph.Ds collaborated to develop new technologies

Dr. Ji Ran said that many industrial designs now dare not be too complicated, because many parts cannot be produced domestically, and the import price is too expensive. If the project matures, the cost will be reduced by about three-quarters, and a large number of new industrial designs may burst out, and these designs can produce better parts and better machines, including robots and drones.

Wan Tianwei also said that at the end of last year, Ji Ran resigned from the position of chief scientist of nanoimprinting, one of Europe's largest semiconductor equipment companies, and returned to his motherland to start a business. He founded a company in Qingdao Doctor Pioneer Park, specializing in the development and manufacturing of nanoimprinting equipment. The two met in a salon organized by the Chengyang District Government, and they were immediately attracted by the project. Through continuous exchange and communication, the two jointly developed a new entrepreneurial project-precision parts printing and nano printing.

 "To start a business together, we learn from each other's strengths. I mainly research technology development. Dr. Wan Tianwei has a keen sense of the project and has advantages in market development," said Ji Ran. "Ji Ran is like the CPU of the team. His unique mastery of technology is the magic weapon for the company's development; and I am the server of the team." Regarding the roles of the two, Wan Tianwei described this.

Create a new model for the development of Ph.D. Pioneer Park

"Now, we use this nano-imprint technology in the field of anti-counterfeiting, creating a nano-imprint, which is the world's most advanced invisible projection anti-counterfeiting technology." Ji Ran said that unlike traditional stamps, nano-imprints need to be used. The core principle of laser projection is to use the principle of optical diffraction and a special algorithm to design a nano-coating, imprinted on metal or plastic materials, and the coating can contain any LOGO or text information. Under normal circumstances, the coating is visible, but the information is not visible. However, the LOGO or text information can be projected through laser pointer irradiation. This is the most advanced anti-counterfeiting technology at present, and it can maintain the leading position in the world within 3-5 years.

At present, the project has set up a team in the Laoshan District Intelligent Manufacturing Industrial Park, and began to look for partners and agents across the country, striving to open the national market as soon as possible, and plan to sell back to the European market. "Printing is our four great inventions. We hope that through our efforts, China's precision printing can lead the world." said Wan Tianwei. “The Doctoral Pioneer Park has more than 200 Ph.Ds. It is the first time that two outstanding Ph.Ds from different projects have created a new model for the development of the Doctoral Pioneer Park through collision and joint ventures!” said Ji Shixiong, Deputy Director of the Human Resources and Social Affairs Bureau of Chengyang District.
