Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University launches $30 million Additive Manufacturing research centre

June 14, 2014

Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University (NTU) has launched a new $30 million 3D printing research centre. The NTU Additive Manufacturing Centre (NAMC) was officially opened by Lee Yi Shyan, Singapore’s Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry and National Development in May.

At the launch, NTU also signed a $5 million joint laboratory agreement with SLM Solutions, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of 3D printers. Named SLM [email protected], the lab aims to develop next-generation 3D printers which can print much larger parts than today’s printers and new types of materials. It will also develop platforms that can print multiple materials in one single build.

NTU’s new Additive Manufacturing centre aims to keep Singapore at the forefront of 3D printing technologies and is supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board.

“Although we are a young university, NTU is already leading with two decades of research and development in this field,” stated NTU President Professor Bertil Andersson.

“Our new Additive Manufacturing centre not only aims to collaborate with industry to develop innovative, practical solutions but also brings together the best talents in the field. The new centre is outfitted with the latest 3D printing machines, such as laser-aided machines for printing metal parts for industry and bio-printers which are able to print real human tissue,” added Andersson.
