Partnership and Collaboration

MoU Signed with Dassault Systèmes and Institute of Technology of Cambodia

We are delighted to be part of this ambitious partnership. Through this partnership, teachers and students at ITC will be offered a specialized suite of tools for engineering design, documentation, simulation and sustainable design in one easy-to-learn software package.

We hope with this partnership we are able to narrow the gap between classroom and actual workplace by integrating digital technologies such as virtual environment learning on real industrial projects.

CREST Youth Industry Boot Camp 2016

Meeting up with a group of students is always inspiring us. In collaboration with CREST last year, we are mentoring 100 over participants in the boot camps organised under the Engineering, Science and Technology Youth Programme 2016. 

We spent days in each boot camp, mentoring them throughout the product development process from product design up to prototype development. Our engineers also shared with the students their personal experience while pursuing the engineering career path.

PSDC Engineering 4.0  

This is indeed a great event you shouldn't miss - the PSDC inaugural Industry 4.0 Week. Throughout the week, so much to take away from the sharing by agencies such as MDEC, PSDC and MIDA as well as other industry players. We also shared with the participants in the talk on "Simulation from Production Ideation to Production”.

Building the Community 

Congratulations, Maelstrom Team 

We had the honour to help them with 3D modelling and production of their design, and are proud to be part of the creation of the 4×4 vehicle, which can navigate and complete obstacles on a test track and emulate the capabilities of a full size 4×4 vehicle.

They also managed being ranked 10 out of 21 teams from 14 countries and also winning the Best Sponsorship and Marketing Award in the Land Rover 4×4 in Schools Technology Challenge in UK.

APU Engineering Student’s Final Year Project

The students had done an amazing and interesting final year project that is a Humanoid Robot ELA. Ela was designed using CATIA V6, programmed to mimic human’s movements, listen to human commands, recognise colour objects; she can even be controlled using your brain.

The students from Asia Pacific University (APU) with MAWEA Industries, not only gained real project management experience, but were also exposed to real technology and solutions that are being used in the industry for product development.  The project scope was especially comprehensive as it covered exposure in several areas: industrial robots, product design, kinematic analysis, virtual simulation.

Once again, thank you it had been a wonderful year, an awesome year full of awesomeness and I wish all of our partners and supporters a happy new year. I look forward to engaging with you all again in 2017! :)

Oh yeah, don’t forget to check out our Website and Facebook Page for the latest updates. Feel free to drop us an email at for any enquiries or suggestions, we would love to hear from you. Cheers!

Manage Stamping Die at Your Fingertips

Last month, we have organised a few workshops for the sheet metal industry, sharing our knowledge in tooling design.

Tooling is one of the key manufacturing processes. By managing the tooling process well, one will be able to improve the product time-to-market and reduce the scrap rate as well as production cost. In the 3-hour session, we talked about the part analysis and unfolding process, with a focus on the integration of blank development with tooling design.

By attending this workshop, the participants have had the opportunity to experience the fast and accurate blank shape generation through a hands-on session. They were encouraged to bring along the CAD files they were working on, so that they would have a better understanding on how to unfold the formed part in just a minute, and bring the blank size of their part back.

To register your interest in a similar event, you may reach us at or visit our website for more information on the upcoming workshops and events.

Techne@PSDC - 3D Scanning Technology and Applications

In an earlier session of Techne@PSDC, a series of technical talks and lectures organised by PSDC, we are pleased to be invited to share our knowledge on 3D scanning technology with the participants. The event was very well responded with some 40 participants joining us to explore the technology and its applications in the industry.

In the two-and-a-half-hour session, we shared about different types of 3D scanners and how 3D scanning technology can help throughout front line operations and pre-production processes. We also further discussed with the audience on how the technology allows one to have better control in product design, production engineering, quality check on ordered components, and product inspection. Of all its major applications – some of which has revolutionised the product development process – product inspection and reverse engineering are among the most common use of 3D scanning technology.

We had a demo session at the end of our presentation showing the audience how the system, a combination of scanner and software, is employed to capture and reuse the 3D information. The whole process, including remodelling a design of the size and range of complexity of a computer mouse, was completed within twenty minutes.

With the intelligent feature recognition of the system, it allows the user to have good control over the quality of a model created through the remodelling process. The crowd was also very impressed with the ease of use of the system.

It was indeed a very fruitful day for us, sharing with an engaging audience the valuable practical information and insights of this technology.
