Industrial Additive Manufacturing
To establish Singapore’s leadership in the emerging area of Industrial Additive Manufacturing, A*STAR has partnered with EDB to set up an Industrial Additive Manufacturing Facility (IAMF). The Facility aims to support and grow AM technologies-based manufacturing activities. In addition, A*STAR’s Industrial AM Research Programme also leverages on A*STAR capabilities developed over the years to enhance manufacturing processes.
The National Robotics Programme (NRP), set up to develop robotics technologies, would be applied to various industry verticals in addressing national challenges such as an ageing population. These capabilities will also support companies in business model transformations and servitisation. In addition, A*STAR’s Industrial Robotics Research Programme, which is a joint collaboration between A*STAR Research Institutes and local universities, aims to improve manufacturing productivity and develop next-generation robotics with enhanced capabilities for human-machine interaction and skill-based operations.
