Unicomp Technology, an X-ray detection equipment manufacturer in Wuxi National Hi-tech District, or Wuxi New District, has been dedicated to developing X-ray sources since its establishment.
As X-ray sources are interdisciplinary high-tech products, the company's research and development department has set up a special center to study basic theories. The center has delved into many fields including atomic physics, solid-state physics, materials science, and thermodynamics, while continuously conducting experiments based on market demands.
In 2020, Unicomp finally developed China's first micro-focus X-ray source and achieved industrialization, making China the third country to develop the technology after the United States and Japan.
X-rays play a crucial role in detecting defects on integrated circuits, new energy batteries, and other products, while the X-ray source, as a core component, determines the penetration capability and image clarity of the inspection equipment. Unicomp's micro-focus X-ray source fully meets international standards in terms of precision and stability.
"I spent over 100 million yuan ($13.88 million) in basic research and it's worth it," said Liu Jun, chairman of the company. He added that the company will continue to increase R&D efforts, explore applications in more market segments, and expand overseas markets.
Currently, the company has three bases in Wuxi, Shenzhen, and Chongqing. Its clients include well-known companies in various industries such as BYD and CATL. Its products are exported to over 60 countries across Europe, Southeast Asia, and North America.

Three months ago, the company successfully went public. During a meeting held after the listing, Liu said that Wuxi not only has an advantageous geographical location and a complete industrial chain but also focuses on supporting business. The comprehensive government services are a great boon to the growth of technology startups, he added.
