Advanced Remanufacturing and Technology Centre
ARTC provides a collaborative platform that connects public sector research laboratories, academia and industry players from MNCs and SMEs to bridge technological gaps in the adoption of advanced remanufacturing processes. It also works with NTU to develop a strong talent pipeline to support the shift towards eco-friendly production processes and techniques. Specifically, ARTC aims to boost the adoption of remanufacturing in the aerospace, oil and gas, marine, energy, automotive and engineering industries. This effort towards spurring sustainable production has been met with strong support from the industry.
“We have been in partnership with ARTC since 2014. To transform traditional ways of cleaning to the green way in the manufacturing industry is never easy. Cost and human habits are often the obstacles hindering the adoption of green manufacturing methods. After joining the ARTC membership programme, our company has received opportunities for growth and advancement.”
Mr Ken Teng, Director, AmpTec Industrial Heating Pte Ltd
“Rolls-Royce has played an instrumental role in the development of the ARTC and we are delighted to be celebrating its opening today. Our close involvement in the ARTC is an integral part of our strategy to establish a global network of Advanced Manufacturing Research Centres. These centres operate a novel model of academic and industrial collaboration that is designed to accelerate the transfer of innovation from early university research to successful exploitation in industry. I have no doubt therefore that this environment of cross-sector knowhow and team spirit will enable the ARTC to establish itself as a world-leading centre of excellence in manufacturing processes, systems and technology.”
