The Integration of 3D metal printing project has won the RegioStars Award in the category 'SMART Europe: enhancing the competitiveness of local companies in a digital world'. With this, the ERDF project was recognised as the best initiative in Europe to support SMEs in technological innovation.

It was possible this time for the second guidance group meeting in the COBOFIN project to take place physically and this was combined with a visit and demonstration at Cibo Robotics.

Everyone is looking at 'Industrie 4.0' and is busy digitalising: connecting machines, making dashboards, integrating sensors, etc. However, we have noticed that in these processes the basis, the processing itself, is often regarded as secondary or even completely lost sight of. Productivity is achieved first and foremost through high-performance machining processes, which is why we want to use a webinar series to brush up on the basics of machining operations and make the link to the '4.0' or digital evolution.

2020 was a year full of challenges. Many Belgian companies have made major investments in innovation despite the crisis, as shown by the figures in our annual report, presented on 22 June 2021.

Cutting parameters used in machining operations are usually selected based on tool manufacturers’ catalogue recommendations or by operator's experience. This is not optimised to the application at hand. At Sirris, we can help you identify tool behaviour and tap the optimal performances in your machining processes with a simple but proven dynamics test.

“Due to the corona crisis, we had been postponing our strategic projects. With the help of POM West-Flanders and Sirris, we are now innovating again. Now that the feasibility of our idea is definitively proven, we want to build a proof of concept as soon as possible.” This is Stefaan Dewulf, CEO of Ethilog, about his experience with the Crisis Code Cracker, Sirris’ three-part action plan aimed at helping technology companies emerge stronger from the crisis.

Industry 4.0 stands for far-reaching digitisation of production and is a goal for many companies today. Including companies with metalworking activities. However, digitisation, standardisation and automation require first and foremost efficient and controlled machining processes. In a webinar series, we will refresh the basic knowledge and link it to digital evolution. In this webinar, we discuss how to switch from trial-and-error to a structured testing approach.

In a world of ever-changing demands and customisation, the batch sizes get smaller and smaller every day. This means that adaptive technology is needed more than ever in manufacturing, especially in machining processes. What is it, why is it important and how to achieve an adaptive machining process? And how can we help you?

Production of smaller series and custom products makes manufacturing more complex and that, in turn, adds complexity to not only the production process but also to the way that operators need to work. Today, a range of digital tools are available to help operators deal with their rapidly changing and ever broader range of tasks, with each tool having its own characteristics and potential uses.
