“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.

Industry 4.0, which stands for the far-reaching digitisation of production, is what many companies are striving for today. Including companies with a metalworking activity. Digitalisation, standardisation, automation ... require first and foremost, efficient and controlled machining processes. Via a webinar series, we refresh the basic knowledge and link it to the digital evolution. The first topic to be discussed will be tool wear.

At Thor Park in Genk, where business, science and technology are joined on one campus, a brand new building for smart manufacturing companies will be built. It is the first concrete step in the realisation of a smart manufacturing campus on the site. By the end of 2022, 8,000 m² of production halls, labs and office space will be available. Sirris is among the first applicants to settle on the new site and thus contribute to the manufacturing industry of tomorrow.

In recent months, many entrepreneurs have asked us how they can make their businesses more crisis-proof. That is why Sirris has developed the Crisis Code Cracker: a 3-step action plan that helps businesses in the technology sector to future-proof their businesses.

Industry 4.0, which stands for the far-reaching digitisation of production, is what many companies are striving for today. Including companies with a metalworking activity. Digitalisation, standardisation, automation, ... require first and foremost, efficient and controlled machining processes. This is what we learn from the existing digital success stories. In a new webinar series, we will therefore first focus on the basics and then make the link to digitalisation.

Connectivity is key for all machines and production systems in a connected factory. It means getting data in and out of devices and software systems. The Umati initiative (universal machine technology interface) supports this issue by promoting open standards. Because of its importance Sirris decided to become its first Belgian partner.
