Every year, the European Commission awards those EU-funded projects, which demonstrate excellence and new approaches in regional development. With the goal of inspiring other regions across Europe, participating projects are in the spotlight of communication activities at European level. Sirris is proud to announce that our EFRO project 'Integration of 3D metal printing' is one of the 25 finalists in the category SMART Europe.

The supply of metal 3D printing is growing strongly. Machines, materials, software, design and finishing... for each technology there are specific possibilities and challenges. Are you still with us? The new Learning Network 'Metal Additive Manufacturing' brings you knowledge and insights, provided by experts, peers and experience experts. Take part in the online information session on 6 July with no obligation!

The draft ISO/ASTM CD 52935_ 'Additive manufacturing of metals - Qualification principles - Qualification of coordinators for metallic parts production' has changed from CD status ('Committee Draft' - the first draft of the standard development committee) to DIS ('Draft International Standard' - draft for enquiry, subject to public input).

Sirris has acquired a new portable X-ray diffraction stress measurement system within the framework of the FEDER IAWATHA project, subsidised by the European Union and Wallonia. The system is unique in Belgium and provides a very powerful tool to measure the quality of all types of parts - cast, forged, machined, etc. - and processes, such as welding, 3D printing, shot peening or heat treatment. Its ability to characterise local stress is key to improve processing conditions.

Within the Enable project we accomplished the latest development in treatment of data coming from SLM melt monitoring for quality control of additive manufacturing parts.

In the INSIDE Metal AM project Sirris, CRM and BIL investigated the technological and economical feasibility of 3D printing with steel. Next to understanding all the opportunities for redesign and added value, there are also economical and technical questions to be answered. It was the goal of the INSIDE Metal AM project to provide a foothold for Belgian companies considering the use of 3D printing with steel. The most important conclusions from this project have now been summarised in a white paper, free to download.

The intention to start using AM too often bumps into a lack of expertise and know-how. Here is where projects such as INSIDE metal AM come to your aid. It’s not just about selecting applications suited for AM, in a next step the right technologies for the job have to be identified and implemented. Here is your chance to learn all about this recently closed project.

After successfully completing a project on laser beam melting (LBM), Sirris switches over to a new generation of machines. This means we say goodbye to our metal 3D printer Concept Laser M2 and we give you the opportunity to buy our machine!

In two webinars on 17 November 2020, Sirris and Granutools will give you new insight in powder handling for AM. We will go deeper into the use of compaction curves to detect a drift linked to contamination of aluminium powder by humidity.
