ALD attaches great importance to technology research and development, and the annual research and development investment accounts for more than 8% of total revenue. Now it has formed an independent research and development team of more than 200 people, including more than ten doctors with high academic standards and strong scientific research capabilities; successively invested more than 15 million yuan in hardware facilities, built a CNAS certified high-standard electronic atomization professional laboratory, and achieved industry-leading research and development results one after another. These results have passed the advanced IPD product development system and are widely used in product design, manufacturing and testing.
In addition, ALD is well aware that intellectual property is the basis and measurement index for independent innovation of enterprises, and is the support and guarantee for maintaining core competitiveness. Therefore, it has always attached great importance to the implementation of intellectual property strategies and formulated a long-term “ALD Intellectual Property Plan” and specific measures. The implementation of the “ALD Patent Quality and Quantity Improvement Plan” has established its own patent “moat” step by step in a planned way, which provides a powerful way for the company to create technical barriers, increase product added value, and maintain industry leadership in the international market competition.
