UL to offer workshop on AM during The QUALITY Show


June 19, 2017

In collaboration with The QUALITY Show, UL will be offering a half day workshop focused on Additive Manufacturing (AM) quality and safety on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL immediately preceding the opening of the trade show.

The workshop, Managing Quality & Safety in AM, will focus on AM process and material hazard management and how to assure quality and safety in part production. Discussion topics will also address product safety issues; design validation factors; creating an assessment strategy; and quality and safety assessment of material suppliers. The cost to attend the Workshop is $400, which includes access to The QUALITY Show. Workshop attendees will receive a certificate of completion. Click here for registration.

"We are pleased to be partnering with UL to offer this important workshop which will provide our attendees with details on how to ensure conformance of parts manufactured using AM technologies while highlighting the different quality assurance and supplier assessment strategies," said Darrell Dal Pozzo, Group Publisher of Quality Magazine.

Paul Bates, Manager of the UL Additive Manufacturing Competency Center (AMCC), will be leading the workshop. “We’re excited to bring this topic to The QUALITY Show. Regardless of the manufacturing process, safety and quality are critical considerations. Additive Manufacturing (AM) is still a relatively new process. While end products produced with this technology must meet all existing product requirements, they also need to account for the numerous variables of AM. Attendees should plan on bringing their questions…I expect a lively discussion.”

The QUALITY Show is the only tradeshow focused exclusively on quality manufacturing and will offer engineers and managers responsible for quality in the manufacturing process two high-profile keynotes and an interactive tradeshow floor with dozens of education sessions and networking opportunities. The trade show will open on Tuesday, October 24 at 1:00 pm following the UL workshop and will run through Thursday, October 26.
