Working with newer technology requires understanding the associated machines, materials and software involved. 3D printing, for example, is one of the technologies that is rapidly growing and requiring a quick, deep understanding of how it can be used in manufacturing. 

Singapore’s Industrial Additive Manufacturing initiative as part of the countries Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) focuses on Electron Beam Melting (EBM), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Selective Laser Melting (SLM), Laser Aided Additive Manufacturing (LAAM), and more. Researchers have published a paperon the microstructure and mechanical properties of superalloys for additive manufacturing. 

Superalloys can be used in difficult environments. They possess properties that make them resistant to thermal creep, increase surface stability, boost superior mechanical strength and reduce damage from corrosion.
