UL LLC Key Developments

UL Opens Global Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence in Singapore

UL will open a Global Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence in Singapore. Additive manufacturing (AM), also commonly known as 3D printing, is defined as the process of joining materials to make objects from three-dimensional model data, usually layer upon layer, as opposed to subtractive manufacturing methods. With an investment of SGD 8million, this facility will be the first-of-its-kind service offering for both UL and the additive manufacturing (AM) industry. The new center, supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), will focus on advanced training, material and process validation programs, advisory services, and research to support both the local and global AM industry. This project is driven by UL's vision that AM will be the catalyst for global transformation in manufacturing. Through R&D collaborations with local research institutes and industry partners such as the Singapore Centre for 3D Printing and the Advanced Remanufacturing and Technology Centre, UL aims to help create a vibrant AM industry in Singapore and the region. UL's Global Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence will address critical gaps in the industry through four key areas. First, it will provide advanced training curriculum to speed up adoption and readiness of a strong AM workforce. Next, the center's validation programs will address AM material and process qualification. Third, the center's advisory services will provide best practices on AM fast to production and AM part acceptance. Lastly, research will be conducted at the center to inform standards development. Over the next several years, the facility's four technical service areas will support and expand Singapore's already well-established 3D printing infrastructure. The center is expected to employ 10 additive manufacturing technical experts.

UL Plans to Open California Facility for Energy Efficiency and Performance Testing of Lighting Products

UL announced plans for the July 2015 opening of a new 19,000-square-foot laboratory located in Brea, Calif. The Photometric & Performance Testing Center will allow UL to provide more responsive and efficient service to regional customers in the western United States. The lab will conduct testing of lighting products to various global energy-efficiency programs such as Illuminating Engineering Society LM-79, Energy Star, DesignLights Consortium, LED Lighting Facts, Zhaga, California Energy Commission, and National Resources Canada. The new UL laboratory in Brea will provide performance and quality assurance testing services for the entire supply chain in the lighting industry, including manufacturers, retailers, distributors, specifiers, and designers. The International Organization for Standardization/International Electrotechnical Commission17025-accredited lab will enhance UL's ability to deliver turnaround times for verifying product performance. The lab will offer expanded photometric testing services with computer-controlled goniophotometers and integrating spheres to test luminaires and lamps. UL continues to invest in the expansion of performance testing capabilities, as quality and performance continues to remain a critical focus of LED technology and the lighting industry. The Brea lab will complement UL's other North American Lighting Performance Center of Excellence (COE) in Allentown, Pa., as well as UL's other global Lighting Performance COEs in China, Italy and India that each provide high-quality evaluations of LED product performance.
