2020 was a year full of challenges. Many Belgian companies have made major investments in innovation despite the crisis, as shown by the figures in our annual report, presented on 22 June 2021.

Cutting parameters used in machining operations are usually selected based on tool manufacturers’ catalogue recommendations or by operator's experience. This is not optimised to the application at hand. At Sirris, we can help you identify tool behaviour and tap the optimal performances in your machining processes with a simple but proven dynamics test.

“Due to the corona crisis, we had been postponing our strategic projects. With the help of POM West-Flanders and Sirris, we are now innovating again. Now that the feasibility of our idea is definitively proven, we want to build a proof of concept as soon as possible.” This is Stefaan Dewulf, CEO of Ethilog, about his experience with the Crisis Code Cracker, Sirris’ three-part action plan aimed at helping technology companies emerge stronger from the crisis.

Industry 4.0 stands for far-reaching digitisation of production and is a goal for many companies today. Including companies with metalworking activities. However, digitisation, standardisation and automation require first and foremost efficient and controlled machining processes. In a webinar series, we will refresh the basic knowledge and link it to digital evolution. In this webinar, we discuss how to switch from trial-and-error to a structured testing approach.

In a world of ever-changing demands and customisation, the batch sizes get smaller and smaller every day. This means that adaptive technology is needed more than ever in manufacturing, especially in machining processes. What is it, why is it important and how to achieve an adaptive machining process? And how can we help you?

Production of smaller series and custom products makes manufacturing more complex and that, in turn, adds complexity to not only the production process but also to the way that operators need to work. Today, a range of digital tools are available to help operators deal with their rapidly changing and ever broader range of tasks, with each tool having its own characteristics and potential uses.

Belgium is the fourth most productive country in the world, but our productivity growth has been sputtering. In this series we present four tips each time to boost productivity in the office and on the shop floor.

Industry 4.0, which stands for the far-reaching digitisation of production, is what many companies are striving for today. Including companies with a metalworking activity. Digitalisation, standardisation, automation ... require first and foremost, efficient and controlled machining processes. Via a webinar series, we refresh the basic knowledge and link it to the digital evolution. The first topic to be discussed will be tool wear.

Ultra-black is an interesting colour for many sectors, for aerospace, first of all, and for several reasons. It can be achieved with black coatings, however, there are some limitations to this methodology. That is why Sirris, together with ESA, is investigating laser texturing to achieve ultra-black, without any additional disadvantages or limitations.
