    Background: A new screw-thread grinding machine was recently designed and successfully turned out by Shanghai Machine Tool Plant, a well-known Taching style enterprise, manufacturing precision machine tools. As compared with grinders of the same type, its weight is reduced by 2/3, the number of parts is also cut by 2/3 while production cost is one third lower. This new grinding machine also raises the quality of the processed parts one grade higher to reach the top of world standards. Armed with Mao Tse-tung's thinking, the workers are most courageous, most resourceful and most intelligent. They dare to blaze the trial, dare to invent and dare to challenge all bourgeois 'authorities'. This unique machine was designed by the workers precisely in such a spirit. In the course of designing, the plant fully relied on the workers, making no fetish of 'specialists' and breaking through all foreign conventions. The workers were given every freedom to participate in the designing work. Up to now, more than 120 workers of this plant have already qualified themselves as designers.

    The direct participation of the workers in designing has greatly speeded up the work of assembling the machine. In half a year's time, the new grinder was brought to completion from initial blue print to final trim.

    The workers often invite professional designers for lectures to acquire a good theoretical ground as they scale the summit of science and technology.
