Hexagon Metrology partners Republic Polytechnic (RP) to explore innovations in automation processes and manufacturing solutions

Memorandum of Understanding signals new relationship with academic institution in Singapore

19 maj 2015

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.

Mr Lim Boon Choon said, “Republic Polytechnic has been making great strides in its industry engagement efforts over the years. This benefit their students immensely as they are well attuned to industry developments when they graduate. We admire RP’s dedicated approach to training the next generation of professionals and I am very pleased to formalise our working relationship with RP today.”

Carsten Struve agrees, “We believe that industry has a responsibility to help academic institutions with technical research and in developing the great minds of the future. Republic Polytechnic and Hexagon Metrology Asia Pacific are well-positioned to cooperate on a number of interesting projects that will benefit both enormously.”

Mr Seto Lok Yin, Deputy Principal (Industry Services), Republic Polytechnic added, “RP is honoured to be in partnership with Hexagon Metrology, a technology leader providing metrology solutions for advanced manufacturing processes. We plan to set up a Joint Laboratory that enable our students to deepen their skills in metrology technology and advanced manufacturing, and for both parties to explore technology projects in this area.”
