Additive Manufacturing: Facility Safety
UL recently published UL 3400, an Outline of Investigation for Additive Manufacturing (AM) Facility Safety Management. The outline will be used for the evaluation and certification of any AM facility using powder as the initial form of feedstock material to print parts.
Additive Manufacturing: Training
Collaborating with AM industry leaders, UL has established a three-tier professional AM training program. As part of the program, UL jointly created the first AM training facility dedicated to metal AM.
Additive Manufacturing: Material Verification Program
UL developed a new service that enables customers to have published data that facilitates pre-selection of 3D printed materials and components for use in various end products. Also known as the UL Blue Card program, it defines the requirements necessary to recognize plastics intended for 3D printing, proving the safety, integrity and usefulness of materials.
