Establishment of institute

In June 1958, in order to quickly change the backwardness of the abrasives industry, adapt to the needs of national economic development, and enable China's abrasives industry to catch up with the world's advanced level, the Preparatory Office of the Abrasives and Grinding Research Institute was established with the approval of First Ministry of Machine Industry of China Equipment Ministry, directly led by the Second Bureau of First Ministry of Machine Industry.

After more than three years of preparation, in February 1962, with the approval of the Second Bureau of First Ministry of Machine Industry, the Preparatory Office was canceled and renamed the Abrasives and Grinding Research Institute of First Ministry of Machine Industry.

1963-1967

The first synthetic diamond

In October 1960, the Preparatory Office received the task from the First Equipment Ministry to develop synthetic diamonds. Upon receiving the task, the Grinding Materials Research Laboratory selected technical experts and formed a small group with the codename "Project 121."

In 1963, China's first synthetic diamond was successfully developed.

In 1966, China's first CBN was successfully developed.

1968-1972

Picture Name

Settled in Zhengzhou and changed its name to Zhengzhou Research Institute For Abrasives and Grinding.

In order to strengthen scientific research and promote closer integration between research, production, and application, in 1971, the First Ministry of Machine Industry followed the spirit of the State Council's "Report on Transferring Forty-One Research Units Under Direct Control to Local Authorities," and assigned its affiliated research units to local authorities. As a result, our institute was officially renamed as "Zhengzhou Research Institute For Abrasives and Grinding".

1973-1977

The formation of superhard materials industry

The State Council instructed that diamond products should be spread everywhere. Starting from 1966, ZZSM promoted the production technology of synthetic diamonds to domestic abrasive wheel factories such as the First Grinding Wheel Factory, the Second Grinding Wheel Factory, and factories in Shanghai and Suzhou, accepted more than 300 interns, and guided the establishment of the earliest diamond production enterprises in China.

In 1974, China's first professional diamond production plant, the Sixth Grinding Wheel Factory, was built with all the technical information provided by ZZSM and the construction by the Second Grinding Wheel Factory. In less than ten years, ZZSM established a high-tech industry for the country through free transfer, laying the foundation for the current development of China's superhard materials industry.

1978-1982

From 1966 to 1978, ZZSM produced a total of 1.1 million carats of diamonds, and its labor productivity exceeded 10,000 yuan year-round, which was higher than the 6,000 yuan in the machine tool industry during the same period. There was a saying at that time: "When the press rings, there are ten thousand taels of gold."

 In 1978, the synthetic diamond "Project 121" won the "National Science Conference Award".

In 1980, our institute was named a "Daqing-style scientific research unit" by the First Ministry of Machine Industry and Henan Province.
