New standardisation proposals are being launched for a number of ISO standards originating from the TC184 (Automation Systems & Integration) and TC299 (Robotics) committees managed by Sirris and Agoria. Examine the list and find out how you can contribute!

Sensing and control are key capabilities for making your products smarter and more autonomous and they are the topic of the 'Mechatronics 4.0 Masterclass V: Best practices toward robust sensing & control of your system' on 14 May.

Polymar specialises in plastics, but wanted to extend its product range for equestrian sports with items made from multi-materials. It was able to turn to Sirris for testing and guidance.

On 16 and 17 May, the trade event on Advanced Engineering will take place in Ghent. At the forefront of this are the creation and manufacture of innovative products. Sirris will also be there and in addition to numerous cases and product examples will be presenting its concept for product development services: the 'Product Development Hub'.

During the sixth edition of Materials on 30 and 31 May in Veldhoven, let yourself be inspired about solutions for corrosion, wear, adhesion, light weight, fatigue, reuse, etc. Special attention this year goes to product design, circular economy and smart materials. Sirris will be present with a stand and is providing two lectures.

When designing a robot cell, the balance must always be found between accuracy, speed, payload and of course costs.

Software for design, generative design, simulation, modelling of manufacturing, etc. The offer is expanding. Sirris can help you to choose a tool.

Sirris helped a plastic injector to develop balls for players, while the official supplier had disappeared with its specifications and formulations.

After a successful first edition dedicated to artificial intelligence, there will be a second edition of the Innoviris Team Up program. The topic of the 2018 Team Up call will be "Distributed and Decentralised Systems, the power of networks". The matchmaking event for the call will take place on 3 May.

More commonly known as 3D printing, additive manufacturing (AM) offers advantages that can never be attained with traditional production lines: limitless design freedom, customisation, lightness, material efficiency, etc. To unlock its full potential, designers need to adopt a completely new approach and mindset. A key aspect is using the right methodology.
