Strategic cooperation agreement signed by Pfeiffer Vacuum and Lanzhou Institute of Physics (LIP) – LIP-Pfeiffer Vacuum Joint Center for Vacuum Technology established in Lanzhou
Asslar, Germany, December 11, 2017. Pfeiffer Vacuum signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Lanzhou Institute of Physics (LIP) in Asslar, Germany. As one of the founders of the Chinese Vacuum Society, the Lanzhou Institute of Physics is a pioneer in vacuum technology in China. LIP is also one of the first institutes in China which has been directly engaged in satellite and spacecraft development and is therefore a part of the China Academy of Space Technology (CAST) since 1968. Pfeiffer Vacuum and LIP will cooperate in research and development to create vacuum solutions for aerospace applications, vacuum metrology, vacuum calibration and other applications.
The strong cooperation between the two companies is in line with the common interests of both sides. Pfeiffer Vacuum is contributing with its extensive line of solutions, products and services ranging from vacuum pumps, measurement and analysis equipment to complex vacuum systems and its global sales and service network, while LIP is introducing its leading position in the China vacuum industry.
On October 17, 2017, the LIP-Pfeiffer Vacuum Joint Center for Vacuum Technology was established in Lanzhou, Gansu province. The center will provide the platform for future projects and joint developments. As mentioned by LIP during the opening ceremony, it will connect ‘Made in China 2025’ and the German ‘Industry 4.0’ initiatives.
The start of the cooperation between Pfeiffer Vacuum and the Lanzhou Institute of Physics is in conjunction with the 10th anniversary of Pfeiffer Vacuum in China – 10 years of committed dedication in China. “We hope that with our experience and advanced technology we can provide leading vacuum solutions and first-class service to create a bright future for our Chinese customers”, said Vic Chen, General Manager of Pfeiffer Vacuum (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.
