Busan Machinery Research Center

The Busan Machinery Research Center adds value to the mechanical part and material production industries by distributing laser processing, automotive part, and nuclear power plant safety technology to local companies and performing certification.

Department of Industrial Laser Technology

Research Topics

  • Laser beam processing application technology
  • Laser and electron-beam manufacturing technology
  • Dismantling laser systems
  • Industrial technology support and transfer

Major Achievements

Laser decontamination and underwater laser-cutting technology

Developed laser thermal cutting technology for safe nuclear decommissioning. A pressurized water tank capable of simulating an underwater environment over 10 m deep was developed to test and develop 100 mm-thick underwater laser-cutting technology. In addition, we are developing watertight equipment and decontamination and site monitoring technology for use in nuclear power plant decommissioning.
