No manufacturing demonstrator claiming to be industrially relevant will be complete without an ERP/MES system. Targeting also new IoT innovations we've chosen an ERP that complements our '4.0 platform'. We’re very proud to welcome Priority Software as our partner to create a transparent shop floor using its ERP system.

The future of the machining industry will be digital. A Factory 4.0 has a transparent shop floor and connected machines, as well as other advantages. What exactly does digitisation mean for you as a machining company? And how does it provide solutions for the challenges you are facing today?

Industry 4.0 is built around the exchange of information between machines and higher-level systems. Connected machines and far-reaching digitisation ensure that manufacturing companies can make their production lines more flexible, secure and autonomous. For machine builders, connected machines offer the potential to develop digitally supported services.

Every manufacturing process starts with collecting the right components for the job. Vanas Engineering has joined our 4.0 Made Real by Sirris initiative as technology partner. Its expertise and smart storage solutions will be at the start of our watch production guaranteeing each client gets his or her personalised watch.

Industry 4.0 is the future, that much is clear. However, what this means in practice, is not so clear. Over the past months Sirris has been building its 4.0 Made Real Pilot Factory to materialise the 'Industry 4.0' concept using nine digital building blocks. The time has finally come. We will reveal our 4.0 Made Real infrastructure on 7 November.

RenewAire is an American company that specialises in energy recovery ventilation units for the residential and commercial property markets. The units are available in more than 20,000 ready-to-use product configurations. A stone’s throw from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where the QRM philosophy was developed by Professor Rajan Suri, RenewAire was one of the first companies to have adopted it.

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.
