AAIS was proud to be an organising partner for the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC) Aerospace Summit held on 6 April 2017 at the Singapore Expo. Mr Ricardo Pesce, in his capacity as AAIS MC member and Managing Director of Embraer Asia Pacific, delivered the opening address as the event’s Guest-of-Honour.

NAMIC was launched in September 2015 by Min (MTI) S Iswaran, to support Singapore’s 3D printing infrastructure and increase Singapore’s adoption of additive manufacturing technologies. Its main mandate is to nurture promising Additive Manufacturing technologies and start-ups, as well as accelerate translation R&D with a focus on commercial applications.

The Aerospace Summit was organised as part of its outreach to the aerospace industry, which has been identified as one of its target sectors. The event was very well-received with over 200 attendees reported by NAMIC. It received wide coverage by media outlets including Channel NewsAsia and Channel 8, with Mr Pesce and Mr Sia Kheng Yok both quoted in a report by CNA. AAIS will continue to support and encourage the adoption of emerging technologies by the industry.
