Singapore can collaborate with Asean neighbours on additive manufacturing (AM) or industrial 3D printing, which is expected to generate US$100 billion in value in the region by 2025, said specialists at an event held by German conglomerate Thyssenkrupp on Tuesday (July 2).
One role Singapore could play is in exporting its model for the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (Namic), which helps to link up industry, research and public agencies for AM projects, said Namic managing director Ho Chaw Sing. The city can also serve as a test bed for showcase projects, curating partners for large initiatives that will demonstrate the value of AM, he added.
