Innovation Centres

As a technology provider, it is important for SIMTech to provide touch points to showcase, promote and engage the industry on specific technologies and applications.  This is done through the setting up of a number of innovation centres hosted at the institute - Precision Engineering Centre of Innovation (PE COI), Manufacturing Productivity Technology Centre (MPTC) and Sustainable Manufacturing Centre (SMC).

Precision Engineering Centre of Innovation (PE COI)

The Precision Engineering Centre of Innovation (PE COI) is a national initiative launched in 2008 by SPRING Singapore and A*STAR to help PE SMEs leverage on state-of-the-art technologies for innovation and growth. Housed in SIMTech and supported by A*STAR and its research institutes, the PE COI offers a broad spectrum of technologies, manpower training, consultancy, and comprehensive facilities to meet the manufacturing needs of local PE companies.
