Explore the breakthrough of additive manufacturing through constant research & development projects.

Development of AM Gas Atomised Nickel Copper Aluminium Bronze Powder for Maritime Industry

The objective is to develop gas atomisation process to produce nickel aluminium bronze powder, including heat treatment to meet the material specification from the maritime industry. The project demonstrated the gas atomisation as a scalable processto produce AM powder, and is a feasible feedstock for emerging AM process like cold spraying for part fabrication. The powder is also applicable for laser powder bed fusion process and laser directed energy deposition processes.

Joint Industry Programme on AM Turbocharger Nozzle Ring for Maritime Industry

The objective is to adopt AM to produce turbocharger nozzle ring so that the lifespan and performance of the part are optimised for ship vessel. The project is a consortium led by Lloyds Register, together with LRQA, 3D Metalforge, Singapore Polytechnic, Neptune Pacific Lines, Kompressorenbau Bannewitz GmbH and Professional Testing Services. Singapore Polytechnic has also demonstrated the production of high-performance powder as AM feedstock via in-house gas atomisation facility.
