On 14 November Sirris presents a pilot of an 'AM integrated Factory' in the machine hall in Diepenbeek. This pilot set-up of a production line combines different state-of-the-art technologies: LBM (laser beam melting), 5-axis high-precision milling, laser hardening, surface functionalization by means of a femtosecond laser and operator support by means of a cobot. A unique feat for Belgium and beyond!

In the manufacturing and mechanical engineering sectors there is still ambiguity regarding the safety connected with operating hybrid work cells, where operators and robots work together. Sirris is therefore organising a seminar on 26 September within the scope of Standards Cell Industrie 4.0 to discuss technical safety standards when operating work cells.

To increase the number of market-oriented high-tech R&D projects between Belgium and Sweden a Belgian-Swedish initiative was set up, in which Sirris too is involved as a partner. On 4 October the initiative will be officially launched during the pilot event 'Digitization of the Future Industry', which will take place in Bluepoint Brussels.

On 18 October we are presenting a new demonstrator at Kortrijk consisting of an assembly line with six cells which is completely in line with Industry 4.0 while fully embracing the strategies of QRM. This is how we can make the production of low volume product families with many variations as efficient as possible. Come along and find out more!

Self-lubricating machine components, ice-free turbine blades, self-cleaning mudguards, ... you can increase your competitiveness by giving extra value to your products through surface functionalities. You can do so by providing the surface with a texture, by means of coating or laser texturing. In order to further expand its offer of surface functionalization, Sirris has acquired a high-precision femtosecond laser, unprecedented in the Benelux. From now on, you can also count on us for laser texturing! Come and see for yourself on 13 June!
