The Materials trade fair, which takes place on 31 May and 1 June in Veldhoven, has a practice-oriented set-up themed around four pillars: materials, surface techniques, joining techniques and analysis techniques. Keynote speeches and live demos will be presented in the different Experience Areas to inspire visitors. Sirris will also be present with its expertise in (functional) smart coating techniques.

additive manufacturing, AM

Additive manufacturing is a rapidly evolving technology offering increasing opportunities and areas of application. Companies are always curious to know whether they also can deploy the latest technologies. Sirris has launched a specific overview on its website for telling beginners all about AM.

Bone regeneration is frequently used in dentistry, particularly when teeth are replaced with implants. A new R&D project looks at developing a complete production line for these implants through additive manufacturing.

Sirris will clearly and visibly be present at RapidPro, which takes place from 7 to 9 March in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, with a stand, participation in presentations and a panel discussion and two entries for the Hall of Fame.

The Sirris OWI Lab and department on additive manufacturing are standard values in their industry and quite proud of it too. The fact that not only Sirris considers the combination of both specialist fields a promising development can be derived from an article about 3D printing in Windpower Monthly, where Sirris was given the opportunity to say something.

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is emerging as a viable alternative within the manufacturing industry. Do you have the required knowledge to successfully make the switch? On 26 April and 23 May Sirris organises a new edition of the masterclass 'Design for AM'. This masterclass will offer you the knowledge and insight needed to design components specifically for AM, which will allow you to take full advantage of this technology.

Between 7 and 9 March 2017, RapidPro, the trade fair for additive manufacturing, will again take place in Veldhoven (The Netherlands). The theme of the congress will be ‘From design to manufacturing'. Leading organisations and speakers will be there to present the latest innovations in the field. Sirris will also be there with its own stand.

After 25 years of development, the techniques of Additive Manufacturing (AM) are being increasingly used in companies. What is the present situation with regard to standardisation? Can we actually use published standards as guidelines?

Benjamin Denayer

Companies are increasingly aware of the advantages offered by additive manufacturing (AM). The first steps have been taken, but the business model allowing AM to drive innovation often lies far ahead into the future. An excellent intermediate step is to integrate AM into the production equipment.

Digital manufacturing is more than just 3D printing. During the seminar held on 4 October, Sirris, Centexbel and the Centre for Polymer and Material Technologies (CPMT) at the University of Ghent, all partners in the FDM4TP research project, will be presenting the opportunities made available by, and recent developments in, digital printing, from 2D to 2.5D and 3D right through to 4D printing.
