Schaeffler joins the ARTC Institute to promote research for advanced manufacturing

Schaeffler has announced that it has joined the Advanced Remanufacturing and Technology Centre (ARTC), a research institute of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) in Singapore, as a Tier 1 member of its industrial consortium.

This partnership aims to accelerate the implementation of research results in the field of advanced manufacturing technologies. Particular emphasis was placed on the industrialization of the additive manufacturing process and robotics in Schaeffler’s global production facilities. The signing ceremony took place at ASTAR ARTC in Singapore, with Andreas Schick, Chief Operating Officer of Schaeffler AG, and Dr. David Low, Chief Executive Officer of ARTC, A*STAR, signing the membership agreement.

Andreas Schick: “We are excited to collaborate with A*STAR’s ARTC to enhance our advanced manufacturing capabilities and processes. Schaeffler has a high level of competence in industrialization and decades of know-how in production technologies. The partnership provides a unique opportunity to accelerate innovations in our production processes and sites. This takes us a significant step forward in shaping next level operations.”

Klaus Mueller, Chief Operating Officer Asia/Pacific, Schaeffler AG: “The Asia Pacific region, with its rich tapestry of perspectives, provides a unique platform for innovation. Singapore, globally acclaimed for its prowess in research and development, allows it to stand as a key hub for technological excellence. Our membership with A*STAR’s ARTC reinforces our commitment to harnessing Singapore’s R&D capabilities and technology excellence to drive positive change in advanced manufacturing. Together, we look forward to collectively shaping the future of advanced manufacturing.”

The ARTC is a contemporary platform based on strong public-private partnerships to translate research into industrial applications. It is led by A*STAR in collaboration with Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore). With over 90 industry members, the ARTC brings together industry, public sector and academia to bridge technology gaps in the adoption of advanced manufacturing and remanufacturing processes.

“A*STAR’s ARTC collaboration with Schaeffler will build capabilities in additive manufacturing, robotics and visual inspection, to enhance advanced production technologies currently used in Schaeffler’s manufacturing sites. The addition of Schaeffler’s expertise in high-precision engineering will strengthen our ARTC industry consortium, allowing ARTC and the ecosystem to co-innovate and tackle diverse problem statements in the manufacturing domain,” said Dr David Low, CEO, ARTC, A*STAR.

Through the partnership, Schaeffler and ARTC will drive forward joint innovation projects in the field of additive manufacturing and robotics and develop new production concepts and technologies. This includes overcoming the challenges of industrializing additive manufacturing, autonomous systems and robotics as well as intelligent product verification.

This cooperation underlines the commitment of Schaeffler and ARTC to promote innovative manufacturing technologies and increase efficiency and quality in production. The combination of Schaeffler’s many years of experience and ARTC’s research and development capabilities provides a strong basis for the development and implementation of new technologies in the manufacturing industry. This move is significant not only for Schaeffler and ARTC, but also for the manufacturing industry as a whole, as it opens up new opportunities for the application of advanced manufacturing processes and thus contributes to the further evolution of the sector.
