  Laser Processing Center was fist prepared by major international cooperating project between Chinese and German governments in 2004.  The signing ceremony of the project was witnessed by two governments’ premiers.  The center was opened in Minhang Campus of Shanghai Jiao Tong University in October 2005, and the installment of the main equipment was finished in February 2006.  The shipbuilding platform using laser processing in the center was funded by several Chinese and Germany participants, including Trumph Company, Schuler Held Company, Laser Application Institute of University of Bremen, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding Group, Jiangnan Shipyard Group, Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Company and Bao Steel.  The center is a multi-function research base, integrating office, academic exchange, scientific experiment, production and processing, and equipped with equipments of machining, hoisting and welding and cutting, instruments of material analysis, and business devices such as computers, internet, multi-media meeting room.  The construction area of the center reaches 3000 m2. 

  Both Ministry of Science and Technology (MST) and Shanghai Science and Technology Commission (SSTC) attach great importance to the foundation of the Laser Processing Center.  Several scientific programs have been approved since 2005, including Shipbuilding Technology of high Power Laser (MST), Research of Shipbuilding Industrial Manufacturing and Application Technology of High Power Laser (SSTC), Study on High Power Laser Welding Technology of Ultral-high Strength Steel (MST), Study on Laser Weldability of Domestic Ship Steels (SSC).  The center was approved as the Shanghai Key Laboratory of Materials Laser Processing and Modification in 2006.
