UL, Northbrook, Illinois, USA, has announced a new collaboration with EOS, Munich, Germany, in which UL will provide metal Additive Manufacturing training and facility safety services to EOS clients. The initial goal of the relationship is to advance quality and safety within the AM industry and enhance the EOS customer experience.

The training will comprise a five-day hands-on custom course, ‘Applied AM Metals’, to feature EOS metal AM technology while focusing on process and material fundamentals, design, build planning, process parameters, critical safety factors, post-processing and quality evaluation. The course will be offered as an alternative to existing EOS Basic training and held at the UL Additive Manufacturing Competency Centre (AMCC) in Louisville, Kentucky, USA.

“Safety management is the most essential thing any organisation can do to protect its people and its AM investment,” stated Glynn Fletcher, President, EOS North America. “The hands-on training UL has developed is a comprehensive program designed to ensure students focus not only on making great AM parts, but also to fully understand the unique safety requirements working with metal powder on machines like the EOS M 290.”

EOS will offer UL’s Additive Manufacturing training and facility safety services to customers who are in the process of purchasing or have recently purchased EOS metal AM technology. EOS and UL plan to launch the collaboration immediately.

Simin Zhou, UL’s Vice President of Digital Manufacturing, stated, “With the significant growth of metal AM, particularly for production parts, the collaboration with EOS – a recognised industry leader – will help accelerate metal AM innovation in a safe and consistent manner while optimising and protecting the customer’s AM investment.”
