Research Collaboration 

We welcome collaboration with industries and research institutes through several models ranging from joint lab, research collaboration agreement, technology licensing to industrial postgraduate programmes.


Using design simulation tools such as reverse engineering and topology optimisation, we develop 3D printed novel parts and optimise existing part design with the aim of reducing the time to manufacture and amount of material used in the manufacturing process.


We test and develop a wide spectrum of materials for additive manufacturing. Materials include metals, polymers, concrete, ceramics, electronics, biomedical and food. By understanding the microstructure of the material, we are able to enhance the physical properties of the printed parts and develop new novel materials.


By incorporating in-situ monitoring and machine learning into our research, we aim to enhance our capabilities in robotic printing and print-head development.


We research extensively to achieve large parts printing and address its challenges. Besides focusing on the printing process, we also look into different aspects of post-processing to improve the printed part performance.


Standards and certification are importance aspects of manufacturing, especially for emerging technologies such as additive manufacturing. Through rigorous testing and research, we work closely with certification bodies in developing standards for 3D printed parts qualification.
