Fu Bao, a celebrity giant panda born in South Korea and returned to China in early April, is expected to meet the public in June at its new home in southwest China's Sichuan Province.

On May 4, Fu Bao ended its month-long quarantine and moved into the Shenshuping Base in Wolong National Nature Reserve. The bear is gradually adapting to the new environment and is in good health.

According to the breeder, giant pandas often need to go through quarantine and an adjustment period after returning to China from overseas. The quarantine usually takes a month and the adjustment, a little longer. The time needed to acclimatize to a new living environment, climate, food and breeding team varies from panda to panda.

Fu Bao has been placed inside the base's breeding park, where there are communication windows between each panda's enclosure, allowing it to quickly get familiar with its neighbors. It's also easier for breeders to observe and record the panda's behavior at close quarters.

Beloved Fu Bao, which means "lucky treasure," is the first giant panda that was born in the Republic of Korea (ROK) to Le Bao and Ai Bao, the pandas leased by China to the country in 2016. It will turn four years old in July. Fu Bao is a celebrity in ROK as well as in China and the public eagerly awaits her debut.

China unveils first self-developed mega hot isostatic pressing equipment

2024-07-20 11:37 Last Updated At:12:07

China on Friday unveiled its first self-developed mega hot isostatic pressing (HIP) equipment, marking a significant breakthrough in the material manufacturing sector.

As the largest of its kind in China, this newly released HIP equipment excels in densifying and optimizing large and intricately shaped materials under ultra-high temperature and pressure.

The HIP is a key technology used in producing high-performance materials, significantly enhancing their wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and mechanical properties.

"In simple terms, this equipment transforms ordinary materials such as metal or porcelain into high-performance ones. Through HIP, material performance is greatly improved, and the average fatigue life of the material can be increased by at least ten times, meeting the needs of extreme working conditions," said Qi Wen, leader of the mega HIP equipment project.

With wide applications, the HIP technique is suitable for both metal and non-metal materials, such as porcelain or glass. This mega equipment will advance the development of China’s aerospace, oil and gas, and machinery manufacturing sectors, enhancing China's competitiveness in the international material manufacturing arena.
