Date: 23 May 2008 - 23 May 2008

Venue: Auditorium, Level 3 Tower Block

Growing the local Precision Engineering (PE) industry into an innovative manufacturing arm of the Singapore economy requires strong support from technology experts and infrastructure to facilitate the development of manufacturing capabilities for local companies.  The PE COI was initiated by SPRING Singapore at SIMTech, a research institute of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR).

The PE COI, a national initiative, aims to help local PE companies to leverage on technologies to transform their businesses through innovation in products, processes and materials, operations and business models.

The PE COI is hosted in SIMTech and supported by all A*STAR research institutes and other local institutes of higher learning.  The centre aims to create a conducive environment for the local PE industry to develop and test innovative ideas.  It offers technology development, manpower development, technical expert consultants, and comprehensive facilities to support the manufacturing needs of the local PE industry.

This seminar gives you an insight into the market trends and opportunities for the PE industry in the areas of medtech, aerospace and automotive, etc.  Hear for yourself the business potential and support from various local agencies (A*STAR, EDB, IE Singapore and SPRING).  There will be experience-sharing from Original Equipment Manufacturers, local SMEs and MNCs on how they are engaging the PE industry through enabling technology to achieve product, process, operation and business model innovations.  Join a discussion panel to clarify your queries or for thought sharing.
