Recently, the Additive Manufacturing department at Sirris acquired, with financial support of the Feder IAWATHA framework, new equipment for thermal and mechanical analysis and characterisation of materials such as plastics, metals, ceramics, glass, gels, (thin) films, chemicals, food, pharmaceuticals, and even liquids can be used to some extent.

Sirris has acquired a new portable X-ray diffraction stress measurement system within the framework of the FEDER IAWATHA project, subsidised by the European Union and Wallonia. The system is unique in Belgium and provides a very powerful tool to measure the quality of all types of parts - cast, forged, machined, etc. - and processes, such as welding, 3D printing, shot peening or heat treatment. Its ability to characterise local stress is key to improve processing conditions.

This year saw the start of the COOCK project QualiKnife, which aims to improve the quality and service life of industrial blades. Now that the first input from companies has been received, a number of typical cases involving different cutting modes and different materials to be cut will be defined and quality aspects highlighted.

Surface treatment of materials has been LGTB's area of expertise for more than fifty years. In order to maintain the quality of the services and total solutions it offers, the company has decided to digitalise its production.
