Review Powder-bed AM Processes for Complex Functional Metallic Components
This course is one of five modules stackable for the Graduate Diploma in Precision Engineering, specialising in Additive Manufacturing.

The course aims to introduce fundamental concepts, theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience on powder-bed metal additive manufacturing (AM) technologies to address high-mix low-volume production for applications in the aerospace, marine, automotive, biomedical, as well as other related industrial sectors.

Participants will acquire knowledge and skills on materials and metallic AM process selection to fulfill specific functional requirements. New insight, understanding and more in-depth perspective are gained on various powder-bed metal AM processes, such as Binder Jet Printing (BJP), Selective Laser Melting (SLM), Electron Beam Melting (EBM), and other upcoming powder-bed metal AM processes. The course includes case studies and practical lab sessions to substantiate technology adoption of metallic AM processes in actual production.

Why This Course

  • Designed specifically to meet Singapore’s industry demand
  • Delivered by technology experts with many years of industrial projects’ experience
  • Highly practical and hands-on work intensive
  • Latest knowledge and up-to-date technologies via industrial case-studies

Who Should Attend

This course is designed to meet the objectives of providing skills training for professionals, managers, executives and technicians (PMETs) working on areas of testing, design, processes, production, reliability and quality improvement in manufacturing industries, such as aerospace, biomedical, medical technology, electronics, precision engineering, automotive and general manufacturing.

what You Will Learn

What You Will Learn

This course allows participants to learn about the powder-bed metal additive manufacturing technologies to fabricate complex functional metallic components. Participants gain understanding of the entire process flow (pre- and post-processing) that is critical for additive manufactured components. With the guidance of experts in additive manufacturing, participants also get hands-on experience on binder jet printing, selective laser melting, electron beam melting, and learn to conduct quality assessment of additive manufactured parts.

Contents covered in this module include:

  • Overview of powder-bed additive manufacturing (AM) of metals and their applications
  • Metal powder production methods and characterisation
  • Process and hardware for BJP, SLM and EBM
  • Practical lab sessions on three powder-bed metal AM technologies (BJP, SLM and EBM)
  • Quality assessment of AM parts
  • Project work on metal powder-bed AM technologies

    Eligible for SkillsFuture Enterprise Credit (SFEC)

    SkillsFuture Enterprise Credit (SFEC)

    The SkillsFuture Enterprise Credit (SFEC) was first introduced during the Singapore’s Budget 2020 and then recently expanded to a larger group of employers in Budget 2022. It encourages employers to invest in enterprise transformation and capabilities of their employees. Eligible employers will receive a one-off S$10,000 credit to cover up to 90% of out-of-pocket expenses on qualifying costs for supportable initiatives, over and above the support levels of existing schemes.

    Submission of SFEC Claim

    Employers are required to submit their SFEC claims manually via its microsite if they fulfil any of the following scenarios:

    • Employers have sent their foreign employees (excluding foreign employees who hold Long-Term Visit Pass Plus) for training on a SFEC-eligible course;

    Employers can only submit the claims for SFEC after their employees have completed the training course(s). Click here to download the SFEC Claim e-guide.
    NOTE: You will require a Corppass account with "EPJS_User" role assigned prior to login to your account to manage your claims.

    If you are unsure whether your company is eligible for SFEC, you may submit an enquiry to Enterprise Singapore (ESG) via here for their response.
