The visit to MTA2017 is fulfilling and we checked out several exhibitors with new and updated equipment. It is well organised and our group also benefited from the site visit at Advanced Remanufacturing Technology Centre. MTA2017 has opened our eyes to the meaning of Industry 4.0!

Philip Ang

President of Philippine Die and Mold Association group delegation

This is the first time I am visiting MTA and am glad to join the 3D printing technology tour. The tour was very well-organised and informative. As 3D printing is new to me, I gained useful learning points from industry leaders such as Creatz3D and UCT Additive Manufacturing Center on the tour. I look forward to explore further collaboration opportunities with these exhibitors.

Interesting panel discussions and presentations at the conference
From being doubtful initially about I4.0 and apprehensive about IoT and CF in terms of practicality and act-ability, this seminar has helped me to shift from scepticism to optimism with the excellent contents delivered by some great CEOs, and visionary speakers. This is one of the best seminars I’ve ever attended.

icOPEN 2017

The fifth international conference on Optical and Photonic Engineering (icOPEN2017) was successfully held from 5 – 7 April 2017 at Singapore Expo. The conference was co-located with MTA2017, a leading exhibition in advanced manufacturing technologies in the region. The conference was attended by 120 delegates from 16 countries including students, academician and company researchers.

Optical Engineering which uses principles of optics and technologies from photonics to develop systems and instruments for industries ranging from 3D printing to Biomedical Optics to Multimedia to Precision Engineering. Optical Engineers or Optineers usually have multiple skills in areas such as optics, instrumentation, product design and instrumentation, mechatronics and computation. Since mechanical engineers are well suited and trained to multi-tasking, they are among the best candidates to advance into this area. Following the success of the Centre for Optical and Laser Engineering (COLE), the Nanyang Technological University has set up the Photonics Institute (TPI) which comprises 5 centres from different disciplines at NTU.
