Precision Measuring Instruments Industry Association of Japan in 1954 to create, in April 2004 ushered in its 50th anniversary. The establishment of industrial associations, so that measuring instrument manufacturers in the economy has been improved significantly. Japan, the world-class machinery products, precision measuring instruments built by the detection project, contributed to ensuring the high quality. Precision Measuring Instrument Industry Association of Japan’s 50-year history, worthy of our consideration and reference. ?
Industrial and scientific level of a country from its level of precision measuring instruments to be distinguished and distinguishing. In a country of science and technology and cultural progress, the measuring instruments and measurement techniques has played a significant role in the practice of Japan confirmed this. ?
Association to create history, to promote the development of the revitalization of Law
1. For the first time the revitalization of
Japan’s precision measuring tools, originally imported from Europe and America basically imported products, mainly to limit gauge. The late Meiji, the urgent need for military supplies and imports expanded greatly increased. Taisho-made precision measuring tools began to start domestic production of micrometer and limit gauges. ?
Since then, the invasion and during World War II military needs to expand due to the lack of advanced imported measuring instruments. In this case, poor performance and technology to replace imported equipment made in Japan, production has been developing.
2. The Second revitalization?
Korean War broke out 50 years, the various mechanical parts such as motor vehicles, increased demand for engine components, the Japanese machinery industry have been restored and developed, precision measuring instruments have been developed subsequently. 1954 annual turnover of 1.1 billion, five million yen, breaking the 1 billion yen mark, exports 7.44 million yen. Before that, measuring equipment industry, precision machinery system by the wartime control will be managed. Founded in 1948, Tool Industry Association of Japan, measuring instruments industry measurement tool in its subsidiary branch of the name activities. 1951, Japan implemented a new measurement method, but the new law in the development of measuring and testing methods and equipment manufacturers and users does not match the actual situation, differ greatly. After deliberation by the government authorities, April 26, 1954 set up a precision measuring instruments Industry Association of Japan, started its work. ?
Initial membership of 53 gauge manufacturers, which micrometer manufacturers have 10 to indicate table has nine factories, block gauge has four factories, gauge manufacturers have 30. ?
3. The third time the revitalization?
In 1956, the Japanese government promulgated the Provisional Measures Law, the revitalization of machinery industry, machinery industry, the Japanese post-war revival a large extent. To promote the modernization of production equipment, improve production efficiency and manufacturing technology, focus on developing 19 kinds of designated products, including the length of industrial design, precision measuring machines and testing machines. Thereafter in 1961, 1966 has been revised. Implementation of the Act until 1971, a total of 15 years, so that sustainable development of Japan’s machinery industry. During this period, the electronics industry in 1957, promulgated the Provisional Measures Law revitalization. Mechanical, electrical and two revitalization implementation of the law firms with comprehensive effect, in Japan, mechatronics, advanced manufacturing technology play an important role. Precision measuring instruments industry also take this opportunity, the successful expansion of the scale industrialization and development of the equipment absolute advantage import market gradually being replaced by domestic products. ?
Precision measuring instruments industry in 1956, output value of 11.1 billion yen, in the implementation of the revitalization of the law 15 years, the
value of continuous growth in output in 1970 reached 21.949 billion yen. ?
Development of industry standards, and actively implement TQC, organized trade shows, technical exchanges
Precision Measuring Instruments Industry Association of Japan set up five years later, at the 1959 formulation of JMAS industry product standards. In 1959 developed a common thread gauge Association Standards (JMAS4001), then in 1960 developed a pointer Micrometer Standard (JMAS5001), 1961 enacted the Micrometer Standard (JMAS1001) and instructions on table with a magnetic seat standard (JMAS2002), and in 1962 set the standard terminology of electronic micrometer (JMAS5002) seven industry associations such as industry standards. Development of these standards for Measurement of Japanese industrial technological upgrading equipment play an important role in enabling Japan to become the world rely on machinery, high-quality products. In addition, industry associations also test domestic and foreign products, product performance and market research, publish the relevant information. ?
From 1971 to 1973, due to the depreciation of the dollar and the oil crisis, precision instrument industry downturn, its impact extended to 1975 so that production fell to 17.829 billion yen. During this period, the market demands a light, small mechanical products, such as home appliances, personal computer up to automotive products, parts and precision, to the small sub-micron development, demanding precision measurement instruments. Electronic products and machinery products, active implementation of TQC total quality management, thereby increasing the reliability of Japanese products. ?
1987 precision measuring instruments Industry Association of Japan hosted the first International Precision Measurement Exhibition (biennial), which micron technology exhibition. Was also held seminars at home and abroad the latest technology. Into the 21st century, the micron technology exhibition and optical measurements by the Japan Industrial Association of All Japan Optical Measuring Instruments Exhibition were merged and renamed as the optical nano-technology exhibition, in June 2001 after the merger was held in Yokohama, the first exhibition. ?
The rise of technological innovation to promote market
50 years, the Japan Association of precision measuring instruments industrial development of the industry have done a lot for the positive and useful contribution to the constant pursuit of measuring instrument automation, high efficiency and quality of, for customer service and service as the Association for the production of development goals. ?
Overall, Japanese manufacturing precision measuring instruments to develop, from the annual output of 1 billion yen in 1968 increased to 100 billion yen, and then expand to 20 billion yen in 1970, Japan in 1978 to 30 billion Yuan, until the bubble of 1989 to 1990, during the more than 100 billion yen. ?
Introduction of new machinery, electronics, optical technology, continuous innovation and new product development to achieve the automation of measurement process, high-speed, high precision, diversity, digital, systematic, on-line technology and so on. New technologies, new products and open up new markets to win the majority of users.
