Hanover, NH – Hypertherm was recognized for its plasma research led by Hypertherm associate Dr. Sung Je Kim.
Hypertherm's Plasma Research Recognized- 7/16/2009
The research, detailed in a scientific journal titled Control Of Fluid Dynamic Instability In Oxygen Plasma Arc Cutting, was part of Kim’s doctorate work at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. Kim, with support from Hypertherm engineers Jon Lindsay and John Peters along with University of Minnesota Professor Joachim Heberlein, spent more than three years studying fluid dynamics during plasma cutting. He discovered the fluids were often unstable causing poor cutting outcomes. He then worked on technology to make the fluids more stable thus improving cut quality.
Kim’s journal is one of 17 best papers selected by the International Organizing Committee of this year’s International Symposium on Plasma Chemistry . The ISPC is a bi-annual international conference focused on topics that encompass plasma chemistry and plasma processing science.
Plasma experts from around the world gather to present recent progress in plasma chemistry and its applications. The IOC will present three Best Paper Awards during this year’s symposium, scheduled to take place in Bochum, Germany, during the last week of July.
