Korea Institute of Machinery & Materials to Enhance Value of Machinery Industry in the Southeast through Cutting-edge Laser Technology (June 7)
- ‘KIMM laser processing technology exchange meeting’
□ The Korea Institute of Machinery & Materials (KIMM) is taking steps to supply laser processing technology in an effort to promote industries in the southeast region.
□ The ‘KIMM Laser Processing Technology Exchange Meeting’ was held on Friday, June 8th at the Open Seminar Room in BEXCO, Busan. The meeting was supervised by the Busan Research Institute of Mechanical Technology (Director: Dong-Sik Shin).
Commemorating its 6th anniversary this year, the meeting has promoted support programs implemented by KIMM for mechanical companies in the southeast, serving as a venue for presenting research results of the Laser Technology Industrialization Research Team of the Busan Research Institute of Mechanical Technology, latest research trends on laser processing technology and results of company support programs.
□ KIMM has been making efforts to integrate the cutting-edge laser industry with the mechanical industry in the southeast. The institute has helped develop the research network and support companies through the establishment of the Busan Research Institute of Mechanical Technology in 2013 and launch of the ‘Laser Processing Technology Exchange Meeting’ in May 2015.
□ By utilizing the laser processing equipment of the Laser Technology Industrialization Research Team, KIMM plans to address problems in industrial sites, provide education for site engineers and promote joint use of advanced equipment.
□ Dr. In-Duk Park of the Busan Research Institute, an executive member of the meeting, stated that “areas of joint research will be explored to integrate advanced technologies of KIMM into industrial sites.” Park added that corporate support programs “will not only help firms to stand on their own feet, but also contribute to technology development and transfer.”
