The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) and UL, the global safety science company, have teamed up to offer UL’s 3D printing 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,” said Russell Broome, managing director of SPE. “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. Our members have made it clear that they seek to keep pace with the rapid AM industry growth and if possible be on the leading edge.”

SPE and UL will cross-promote the offering throughout the balance of 2016 at conferences and through digital and social media.


UL is an American worldwide safety consulting and certification company headquartered in Northbrook, Ill.
