The University of Louisville and UL, a global safety science organization, has declared the official opening of newly established 3D printing training centre named the UL Additive Manufacturing Competency Centre (UL AMCC). Developed for established additive manufacturing (AM) technical and business professionals, the end-to-end training centre, located on the University of Louisville campus, will be a hub for advancing AM knowledge and workforce expertise.
The UL AMCC offers hands-on training in additive manufacturing for metals and curriculum covering design setup, design corrections, machine setup, part production, post-processing and parts inspection, testing and validation. The training will allow professionals to understand how to produce metal parts and emerging materials through additive manufacturing, and establish safety systems, identify hazards from materials and machines and manufacture parts with safety built into designs.
“The UL AMCC is a first-of-its-kind facility with the technical and educational expertise to not only progress additive manufacturing but also contribute to the future of manufacturing transformation. We see the intersection of industry information, UL’s training, certification and safety knowledge and the university’s additive manufacturing expertise and academic research creating a manufacturing environment unlike anything else,” said David Adams, CEO of the IPR.
