Hexagon Metrology, a global player in industrial metrology applications, today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Republic Polytechnic to collaborate on knowledge sharing and joint projects for manufacturing applications and processes.
The partnership includes the setting up of a joint laboratory aimed at providing a full suite of solutions in product realisation, from Computer-Aided Design (CAD), 3D prototyping, measurement and inspection and tooling design for mass production, to statistical process control. The new facility will enable the linkage of design, manufacturing and metrology operations into a single, lean system. Final-year Republic Polytechnic students from the Diploma in Industrial and Operations Management would gain practical skills complementing their curriculum, and undergo internships at the company to learn diverse industrial metrology applications across various sectors.
The collaboration will also strengthen industry links through the provision of training and services, technical seminars and workshops, and other knowledge sharing opportunities. The MOU was signed by Hexagon Metrology’s Asia Pacific President Mr Lim Boon Choon, and Mr Seto Lok Yin, RP’s Deputy Principal (Industry Services). The ceremony was witnessed by Mr Carsten Struve, Hexagon Metrology’s Chief Technology Officer, and Mr Yeo Li Pheow, Principal/CEO of Republic Polytechnic.
