Freeform lenses or mirrors, produced by means of 3D printing or 3D printed moulds, make it possible to create innovative lighting solutions with customised radiation patterns. To introduce companies to the design methodology and possibilities of such optical components, we are organising the workshop ‘Freeform Optics’ on 12 September in cooperation with KU Leuven.

Can additive manufacturing revolutionise the production of large metallic parts? Combining metal additive manufacturing (AM) techniques with welding techniques is one of the possible options… provided you can produce a quality junction. Discover this year’s WeldALAM project: a Sirris initiative aimed at exploiting welding techniques, in order to meet this challenge.

In its workshop in Diepenbeek Sirris is creating a new demonstrator, on which it will have to be possible to create smooth (3D) surfaces. Mechanical components with rough surfaces are preferably to be avoided. You will have to perform some time-consuming and expensive tricks to smoothen the surface. Our new demonstrator will enable us to produce components with smooth surfaces.

Today, the combination of coating and texturing is a viable option for our manufacturing industry, but the number of possibilities is immense. That is why we want to know which functionalities you would like to add to the surface of your product, machine or process. Let us know! Fill in our survey and receive the anonymous results afterwards!

Creating a new demonstrator starts with creating space on the shop floor to put all these new technologies and equipment. We reorganised, cleaned up (a lot), threw out everything we didn’t touch for years and renewed some equipment to create some space. This was a huge work.

3D printing in the industry is an expertise that is becoming increasingly important. This is shown by a recent study in which Sirris collaborated and also by our own experience. After all, Sirris has almost 30 years of experience and expertise in the field, based on which it can offer companies the necessary support.

On 29 April, the Smart & Digital Factory Lab in Kortrijk received a delegation from Argentina. The visitors showed a strong interest in the possibilities of Industry 4.0 and what it can bring to the cooperation between man and robot.

On the 13th of June, you can come to our Kortrijk branch for an introduction to the newest addition to our infrastructure: an industrial robot, which will be able to work close to people, and an AGV. This presentation fits in the context of the official opening of the Factory for the Future Mechanical Engineering & Mechatronics labs.

Industrialisation and digitisation are not exclusive to major multinational firms. They are also within reach of small and medium-sized companies. AW Europe has just proved so, by obtaining one of the two Factory of the Future titles awarded for Wallonia in 2019.

Belgium is the fourth most productive country in the world. Only Norway (and its oil), Luxembourg (and its banks) and Ireland (as a tax haven) are doing better. Results to be proud of, if it weren’t for the fact that productivity growth has been sputtering in recent years. That’s why we will provide you with a series of tips to improve your productivity. This is part one.

Since 6 February Belgium has ten new companies with a Factory of the Future title. Besides seven companies from technological industries, we also welcome three companies from the food and pharmaceutical sector in the list of Factory of the Future companies. Colruyt Group Fine Food, Janssen Pharmaceutica and Lavetan.
