The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE; Bethel, CT) and UL (Northbrook, IL), the global safety science company, will offer UL's additive manufacturing (AM) training program to SPE members. Beginning this month, SPE members will receive discounts on UL's AM training program and related content, and UL will sponsor new SPE members interested in such training by paying their SPE dues.
The relationship will benefit both SPE members and the plastics industry as a whole, according to Russell Broome, SPE Managing Director. "Working with UL is an exciting opportunity for SPE, enabling us to provide greater access to AM industry knowledge for more than 18,000 SPE members across 84 countries," said Broome. "Our members have made it clear that they seek to keep pace with rapid AM industry growth and, if possible, be on the leading edge."
