Advanced Manufacturing Systems Research Division
The research division for Advanced Manufacturing Systems conducts various research on materials, processes, devices, measurement, and testing technology for the production of micro-scale precision products. The research is based on ultra-precision machining and patterning, control, design, and ICT convergence. The division is currently focused on the development of core technologies for manufacturing next-generation machining systems, semiconductors, displays, industrial robots, and general machinery.
Energy Systems Research Division
In the Energy Systems Research Division, researchers are developing the process and safety technologies for high performance and reliability of industrial energy systems and various plants in order to secure future energy. In addition, we are developing turbomachineries such as pumps, compressors, and steam & gas turbines, thereby advancing thermo-fluid components such as heat exchangers, reactors, and valves, and conducting certification tests for LNG & cryogenic systems accompanying with the development of cryogenic cooling systems.
Nano-Convergence Mechanical Systems Research Division
The Nano-Convergence Mechanical Systems Research Division is carrying out research to develop original and/or core technologies in the field of large-area nano patterning lithography processes/systems, nano molding, nano measurement & analysis, and nature-inspired systems. Current research includes technology or equipment development for commercialization of the functional, flexible devices (several nanometers in scale), nano bio-devices, and nano energy devices covering a large area. The Division is keen to make a breakthrough in manufacturing next-generation electronic energy devices, flexible semiconductors/displays, and IT innovations that can create new industries based on solid and stable foundation for the application of nanoconvergence technology.
Environment System Research Division
The Environment System Research Division is working on state-of-the-art technologies of environmental machineries and systems with high efficiency and low pollution in order to actively cope with social issues such as fine particle air pollution and global warming. Our division has the core environmental technologies in plasma, air/water treatment, engines, combustors, and so on, and we are developing highly-efficient and environmentally-friendly power generation systems for the future based on these technologies.
Mechanical Systems Safety Research Division
The research division for Mechanical Systems Safety concentrates on the development of core technologies for the design and engineering of large and complex mechanical systems, integrated systems technology, and new mechanical systems, using safety and reliability technologies. Its main research areas include urban or high-speed magnetically-levitated trains, wind turbine systems, dynamic modeling and simulation (M&S), and control technologies, as well as safety and reliability technologies for mechanical and structural systems.
Daegu Research Center for Medical Devices and Green Energy
The Daegu Convergence Technology Research Center was established in order to participate in the government’s policy that fosters specialized local industries and leads industries towards making a regional hub for their growth. The center is carrying out research to develop medical devices and medical assistant robots, especially for the disabled and senior citizens. The center also provides technical assistance to corporations in Daegu Metropolitan City and Gyeongbuk Province, thereby fostering the development of small and medium enterprises.
Busan Machinery Research Center
The Center has been developed as a machinery headquarter by building an infrastructure at innovation system and devepoling spreading advanced technologies. Machinery, automobiles, shipbuilding, and atomic related technologies are well-developed in the southeastern region of Korea. The center is founded to research and develop brand new advanced technologies for associated industries. The center has been providing a close support for sectors to industrialize and verify laser process technology, automotive parts technology, and nuclear equipment safety technology. Moreover, as a public research institute, the center has been contributed to the local communities by supporting local students to study and find a job related to science and engineering fields.
