A consortium of Flemish educational institutions - Thomas More and the De Nayer campus of the University of Leuven - and knowledge institutions - IBS and Sirris - have investigated the use of WAAM (Wire and Arc Additive Manufacturing) in a production chain. This was part of a European project. It yielded some new insights into the technology.

Peter Hernou, barista, World Latte Art Champion and CEO of start-up Labrints, has taken up the challenge of bringing perfect drinks to the hospitality sector and thus to the consumer. Peter knows how to prepare a quality drink, but how to get the perfect product into the consumer's cup without the physical presence of the barista? To do so, the company has developed a smart steamer: ‘aēralab’ stands out from other devices by making the skills of the barista scalable through technology.

The Internet of Things is conquering the world, already well established in some domains and starting a revolution in others, such as the medical and patient care sector. The new upcoming applications may require other integration techniques to be considered. Enter '3D-PID', developed by Sirris, offering a great flexibility and capacity for customisation, as the approach is essentially based on 3D printing techniques. Discover the four steps of this approach and its advantages here!

Tool monitoring is needed in the milling process in order to be able to automate it and to ensure the quality of the products. This is not an easy task where micromilling tools are involved, but acoustic sensors can offer a solution for this.

Thyssenkrupp Materials wanted to boost the overall equipment efficiency of its metal sawing by increasing the productivity and availability of a hacksaw machine and cutting the cost of replacing its blades. This turned out to be extremely cheap and simple to implement.

Many manufacturing companies have already focused on automation and digitisation to some extent, but this has often been done in isolation and in different ways. Little communication takes place between these islands and little is known about the material, or the information, that goes from one set-up to another. Keeping a production line flexible and profitable is a serious challenge. This is also the case with Renier Natuursteen.
