Emerson and Nanyang Technological Research on the application of 3D printing technology to industrial control valves on May 17, 2016, Emerson Process Management and Nanyang Technological University of Singapore announced the establishment of a cooperative research center to jointly study how to apply 3D printing technology to the manufacturing of industrial control valves
on May 17, 2016, Emerson Process Management and Nanyang Technological University of Singapore announced the establishment of a cooperative research center to jointly study how to apply the 3D printing technology of adding fabric or leather upholstery on the surface of instrument panel framework, door panel and column trim panel to the manufacturing of industrial control valves
this cooperation aims to use high-value technology and human resources to improve the safety, competitiveness and innovation of control valves. The goal of the R & D center is to design and produce control valves used in the process field faster and more economically, and make the valves have better performance. These new technologies will also be applicable to the manufacturing field of other industries
Emerson has provided Fisher control valve solutions for users in power, oil and gas, oil refining, chemical and petrochemical industries for 135 years, providing comprehensive services and important flow control for the process industry. Using new manufacturing technology, Emerson designed and produced control valves can solve the most challenging flow control problems for users. Emerson's Singapore office will establish a joint laboratory equipped with cutting-edge production technology
Professor Chua Chee Kai, director of Singapore 3D printing technology development center of Nanyang Technological University, said: "cooperating with famous industrial enterprises such as Emerson has created an environment for us to jointly develop products and have the opportunity to turn research into commodities. Emerson's new laboratory is open to our students, providing them with a real experience environment, so that they can truly understand how to meet the needs of the industry."
Vincent Tan, vice president of Fisher valve operation and manufacturing engineering in Emerson Asia Pacific region, said: "cooperate with Nanyang Technological University to help Emerson make full use of its broader talent resources and accelerate the application of 3D printing in the industrial market."
the joint laboratory is expected to be put into operation on october1,2016 and will serve the R & D project in the next five years. The participants of the project are mainly graduate students from Nanyang University of technology. They will start their research work from January 2017 and complete their doctoral research projects before the fourth year of their studies
the cooperation agreement was signed on may17,2016, jointly signed by John Wilson, President and general manager of Emerson Process Management Fisher Valve and Bettis actuator products in Asia Pacific, chairman of Singapore 3D printing technology development center and Professor Lam khi (107) n Yong, general manager of Nanyang Technological University
