The Singapore arm of the German safety and quality expert, TÜV SÜD, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with thyssenkrupp Innovations, an innovative additive manufacturing solutions provider, to establish the principles governing their cooperation in jointly developing the market for additive-manufacturing-enabled solutions in the Asia Pacific region. The companies will work together over a period of three years, starting with setting up industrial-grade manufacturing solutions as well as testing, inspection and certification services for land transportation and mobility, and industrial plant services. The companies may expand the scope of the MoU to cover other sectors as well.

“The field of additive manufacturing (AM) 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,” said Mr. Holger Lindner, CEO of TÜV SÜD Product Service Division. “Through this collaboration with thyssenkrupp, we aim to inspire trust among the frontrunners and demonstrate Singapore’s readiness for industrial-grade additive manufacturing.”

The partnership will combine thyssenkrupp Innovations’ expertise in part selection and design advisory services with TÜV SÜD’s capabilities in regulatory and non-regulatory testing and certification, to offer predictable innovation management solutions for customers, which will result in mitigating risk, investment security, easier access to global markets, and faster time-to-market. The combined capabilities of the two companies will 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 commercializing a train part for a leading train operator in the region to reduce the overall weight and improve their functionality significantly.

“thyssenkrupp has always stood for engineering excellence and innovation for over 200 years with deep experience in the automotive, mobility and industrial plant sectors,” said Mr. Jan Lueder, CEO thyssenkrupp RHQ Asia Pacific. “Additive manufacturing delivers enormous potential to transform the region and level up vital sectors of the economy, reducing import dependence and simplifying supply chains. Additive manufacturing will surely be an innovative solution to further drive growth, as long as stakeholders work together to continue building awareness as well as create a supportive ecosystem for additive manufacturing adoption and development. The collaboration is thus a step towards this direction, and we are sure we will be able to provide the best services to our customers.”
