12 October 2018
Global engineering company Renishaw and Singapore Polytechnic (SP) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish a partnership to encourage the use of additive manufacturing (AM) and to nurture the necessary talents to cope with the increasing use of metal 3D printing in the ASEAN region.
The Innovation Space for Additive Manufacturing will be located at W1201 at Singapore Polytechnic and set up as an exclusive space for metal additive manufacturing, where a Renishaw AM system and auxiliary equipment will be based. The partnership creates an entirely new and beneficial pathway for both staff and students of Singapore Polytechnic, as well as Renishaw.
Mr. Loh Yew Chiong, Senior Director of Engineering Cluster of Singapore Polytechnic said, “Singapore Polytechnic was set up in 1954 as Singapore's first Polytechnic; the pioneering spirit is kept very much alive. Minister of Education Mr. Ong Ye Kung has announced Singapore Polytechnic as one of the two Institutes of Higher Learning to lead adult learning for Advanced manufacturing in October 2017. Additive manufacturing is one of the key technologies in advanced manufacturing, we welcome Renishaw, the world's technology leader, as our co-location partner for advanced manufacturing.”
Mr. Steve Bell, General Manager of Renishaw ASEAN said, “We are honoured to collaborate with Singapore Polytechnic to provide our AM technology and expertise to facilitate the tertiary institute to build technical skillsets and nurture AM talents. The Innovation Space for Additive Manufacturing will be a good showcase for the local industries to promote the adoption of cutting-edge metal 3D printing technologies.”
