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!

On 10 and 11 May the Eurofinish trade fair will once again be the best place to find out more about the latest products, processes and coatings. Visitors will be shown the latest innovations and be able to find answers to all their questions. Sirris will also have a stand where, among other things, you can watch the teach-by-demonstration robot going through its paces.

Hardening is an essential but onerous step in the manufacture of precision components for switches. The traditional process takes a long time and entails precision risks. Laser hardening eliminates both of these problems. Niko is introducing it in its production process.

To develop and evaluate the design and structures of new products, a Sirris member company is using compression moulds. They are doing this to give their products the desired structures. It evaluated both an additive and a subtractive process.

In the six white papers we published in the spring, we described a number of technologies, as well as the opportunities they presented. In order to show what this means in practice, our experts have made a demo-box consisting of a fully detailed work-piece demonstrating the issues contained in the white papers, thereby explaining clearly and practically what the precision experts at Sirris have achieved.

The German firm Mozys Engineering developed a solution to monitor vibrations during machining operations: signal processing, real-time data acquisition, evaluation on PC and data communication in 1 device.

Thanks to precision production, manufacturing companies can make high quality products and strengthen their competitive position. Sirris has invested in a state-of-the-art infrastructure at Diepenbeek with all the latest technologies. The laboratory is opening its doors on 30 September to demonstrate to companies the opportunities that are available - this includes you too.
