In 1998, Frank Xu fisrt came into contact with testing machine industry, this is totally a new industry at that time in China. And he first realize the importance of test machine.
After two years in 2000, Frank, as a mechanical engineer, founded Hengyu Instrument Company with three friends, which mainly produced testing machine for shoes. And have developed the special software system for tensile testing machine in 2003 with East China University Of Science and Technology. This bring a new round of technical innovation for testing machine, driving the rapid development of the Pearl River delta region test machine industry.
In 2004, Lixian Instrument Scientific Co., Ltd. was founded by Frank, which focused on produce universal testing machine (universal tensile/ compression testing machine)
, first for luggage, then leather, rubber, tapes and so on. There’s no complete standards on test in that time, the engineer must produce the test machine as customer’s need. This made Lixian a professional R&D team.
In 2007, the government and some testing organization released many kinds of standards for all the materials and products. Lixian make quick adjustments based on these standards, began to produce standard test machines in stocks. Meanwhile, Lixian has introduced new technologies of climate chambers, like temperature & humidity test chamber, UV test chamber, Xenon lamp test chamber, salt spray machine, walk-in chamber, etc.
In 2008, Lixian set up the International Trade Department, to take their test machine to the world. And soon gained market share in Asia, Europe and Americas. After two years, ZME Instrument Trading Company was founded as a subsidiary company of Lixian, which focused on Asia market.
In 2015, with the development of refrigeration technology tends to be mature, Lixian set up the Taikang Air Conditioner Company to do R&D of the constant temperature and humidity intelligent air conditioner. And was officially launched in 2017.
For now, Lixian has more than 10,000 customers from 70 countries, 50 more agents in different countries. And has established long-term cooperative partnership with academic research institutions such as Tsinghua University, University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, East China University of Science and Technology, Guangdong Institute of Metrology, Sky worth Electronics, Foxconn and other well-known enterprises, and undertaken laboratory projects of many listed companies.
"Aim high, down to earth".
To face the new challenges and development opportunities in the future, Lixian will make unremitting efforts to accelerate its overall improvement -- actively surpass, innovate technology, play a pioneering role in the international industry, and serve the global manufacturing industry!
