The QRM Institute Silver ® Course associates theoretical knowledge of the QRM principles and practical applications through exercises and operational simulations.

Deceuninck in Hooglede-Gits, West-Vlaanderen, comes up with innovative solutions to be used in and around buildings. With the solutions proposed by Deceuninck, some of them in PVC, the company meets the market demands and expectations. The company has been considering possible alternative technologies for the production of PVC profiles for some years now. One technology stood out during this explorative search: additive manufacturing.

The Product Development Hub is a technological meeting point that will help and support companies to create new products: design prototypes quickly, ready to industrialise. The Liège hub focuses on three areas: light, small and connected products. Sirris invested €850,000 in the new high-tech infrastructure of six laboratories and a team of 20 experts.

Sirris has built a new demonstrator for making the opportunities offered by cobots more tangible. In this specific demonstration an operator is supported during the assembly of a smart product. We will introduce it to you on 28 November.

AI, machine learning, cloud computing, robotics, the Internet of Things, ... there are many triggers for manufacturers to rethink their businesses. Along with the potential comes some uncertainty on how to transform the opportunities into real cost savings and revenue opportunities. During the Smart Manufacturing Day on 7 November, some of the hypes will be demystified and you will learn how they can contribute to your success.

Need help turning your ideas into tangible, marketable products? Come to Kortrijk Xpo on 7-8 November for the next edition of the Prototyping trade fair. Sirris will have a stand at the fair and will make a contribution.

Aiming for perfection sounds good, but it can also be a pitfall. Economically speaking, perfection appears to be far from ideal.

The 'smart factory' is a magical term in modern industry. Case studies indicate that you have to make your factory simpler before you can make it smart.

Additive manufacturing brings the manufacture of individualised products within reach. As the technology advances, people are increasingly looking for ways to integrate it into manufacturing processes. That is why the AM Integrated Factory Conference is being held, on 4 December, with Sirris as a content partner in the programme.

To stay one step ahead of the competition at a global level, supplier to the automotive industry JTEKT is investigating whether its production can be further improved using smart optimisation. It had three feasibility studies performed for various tasks within its production.
