Last week one of Germany’s largest engineering firms announced it was to open a 3D printing facility in Singapore. In the press release for the announcement Mr Lim Kok Kiang, Assistant Managing Director, Singapore Economic Development Board said:
“We are delighted that ThyssenKrupp has chosen to anchor the centre in Singapore. The investment is a testament to Singapore’s growing reputation as a hub for additive manufacturing research and deployment in the region and beyond.”
That ‘growing reputation’ is thanks largely to the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC). Since its launch in October 2015, NAMIC has raised more than 30 million USD to initiate 179 projects covering industry technology development, translation, commercialisation, standards development, training and certification, across various industry verticals.
NAMIC’s annual summit is one of the ways how the organisation promotes AM within Singapore. For the 2019 edition, the conference’s focus is Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM). To register, click https://namic.sg/events/dfam/
