Precision Engineering (PE) is the fundamental building block of manufacturing. From nano-scale dimensional semiconductor chips to the tough drill bits used in oil exploration, the PE sector is critical to the electronics, aerospace, automotive, marine & offshore and medtech industries. Its role in the Singapore industrial landscape is evident as the PE industry employs a quarter of the local manufacturing workforce.
MISSION & ROLESMissionPE COI aims to support Precision Engineering companies in leveraging on SIMTech’s manufacturing technologies to sustain, transform and advance their businesses locally and expand internationally.
RolesPE COI upgrades the precision engineering industry through:
PE COI offers a wide range of technologies and know-how that caters to diverse markets and industries:
TECHNOLOGY FOR ADOPTIONThe Centre will be a front for industry engagement with SIMTech's technologies; and several initiatives will be rolled out for different segments of the industries tackling different precision engineering issues.
The LAAM technology utilises high energy laser beam for material deposition which enables 3D additive manufacturing, surface modification and repair with high flexibility. LAAM can achieve good mechanical properties, wear and corrosion resistance. The adoption of this technology allows companies to explore new applications and business opportunities.Contact: Mr Tan Lye KingTel: (65) 6793 8290Email: tanlk@SIMTech.a-star.edu.sg
