Contributing to Singapore’s Manufacturing Future through AM

Supported by the National Research Foundation and in partnership with the SPRING Singapore and Economic Development Board, NAMIC is organising a series of Additive Manufacturing (AM) Summits targeting the following core industries:

  • Precision Engineering  23 Jan 2017
  • Aerospace  6 Apr 2017
  • Healthcare  21 July 2017
