TÜV SÜD’s Singapore business has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with thyssenkrupp Innovation to jointly develop the market for Additive Manufacturing-enabled solutions in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. The companies will work together over a period of three years, starting by setting up industrial-grade manufacturing solutions and testing, inspection and certification services for land transportation and mobility, and industrial plant services. 

The partnership will reportedly combine thyssenkrupp Innovations’ expertise in AM part selection and design advisory services with TÜV SÜD’s capabilities in regulatory and non-regulatory testing and certification, to offer predictable solutions for customers to enable them to mitigate risks and offer easier access to global markets, as well as faster time-to-market. 

The combined capabilities of the two companies are expected to enable them to expand their respective market reach and offer expanded services to existing as well as new customers. The two companies are currently working on testing and commercialising a train part for a leading train operator in the region to reduce its overall weight and improve its functionality significantly.

Holger Lindner, CEO of TÜV SÜD Product Service Division, stated, “The field of Additive Manufacturing is an integral pillar of Industry 4.0. AM presents new opportunities for serial production and supply chains but early adopters will need to navigate through uncertainties in this fast-evolving technology. Through this collaboration with thyssenkrupp, we aim to inspire trust among the front-runners and demonstrate Singapore’s readiness for industrial-grade Additive Manufacturing.”

Jan Lueder, CEO thyssenkrupp RHQ Asia Pacific, added, “thyssenkrupp has always stood for engineering excellence and innovation for over 200 years with deep experience in automotive, mobility and industrial plant sectors. Additive Manufacturing delivers enormous potential to transform the region and level up vital sectors of the economy, reducing import dependence and simplifying supply chains.”
