Introduction

Precision Engineering (PE) is the building block of manufacturing. From nanometric semiconductor chips to the most cutting-edge medical devices and the giant-sized drill bits used in oil exploration, the PE sector is of crucial importance for the electronics, aerospace, automotive, marine, oil & gas, and Medtech industries. Its role in the Singapore industrial landscape is evident as the PE industry employs a quarter of the local manufacturing workforce.

Against this backdrop, the PE COI is a national initiative launched by SPRING Singapore to help PE SMEs leverage state-of-the-art technology for innovation and growth.

Hosted at SIMTech and supported by A*STAR research institutes as well as other institutes of higher learning, PE COI offers a broad spectrum of technologies, manpower training, consultancy, and comprehensive facilities to meet the manufacturing needs of local PE companies.
