Key technology area

Additive manufacturing is one of the four key technology areas identified for development under the $200 million Innovation Cluster Programme (ICP) announced by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in October 2013. The programme is led by SPRING Singapore and National Research Foundation (NRF), by the Research, Innovation & Enterprise 2015 (RIE2015) Sub-committee on Innovation & Enterprise.

In the past decade, through the efforts of NRF and Singapore's Economic Development Board, investments have been made to develop research capabilities in additive manufacturing within the different institutes in the country.

Recent developments have seen functional prototypes and end-use parts built through 3D printing technologies, and these have found applications in the commercial space. NAMIC will build upon these efforts and focus on sectors where Singapore has developed capabilities with competitive advantages. These sectors include aerospace, marine and offshore; precision engineering; medical technology; building and construction; and design.

To accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing, NAMIC will also partner with well-known industry partners, including multinational companies and local firms.
