The choice for either textures or coatings depends greatly on the desired function, application and production process requirements (batch vs. in-line). The general outlook is that increasingly advanced functionalities thanks to either coatings, textures or a combination of both will be developed, and in such a manner that their application will be economically feasible.

As part of a smart phone relay antenna project, Sirris has been entrusted with the design and dimensioning of the support of the radiators, choice of materials, study of the connection problems and production of the demonstrators.

Sirris is studying the use of natural fibre composites under different aspects: moulding, assembly, quality control. The results are very interesting.

On 23 October, Sirris is opening a brand-new ‘Product Development Hub’ at its site in Liège. The agenda includes some testimonials from industry describing what the Hub can mean for companies. One such company is JTEKT Torsen.

On 23 October Sirris will open its brand-new ‘Product Development Hub’ at its site in Liège. Come and see our high-tech infrastructure and find out what our new hub can do for you!With this unique technological meeting point, which consists of six collaborative labs, we want to help companies even better and guide them in the design of light, miniaturised and smart products, so that they quickly have proof-of-concept and prototypes ready for industrialization.The advanced infrastructure of the hub includes ultrasonic injection moulding, next-gen process monitoring systems for injection

Do you want to be informed of the latest developments in the regulation and standardisation of pressure equipment? In collaboration with the Italian Sant'Ambrogio Servizi Industriali and the Belgian LVDV, Sirris and Agoria are organising a two-day masterclass on the status of the European legislation and standardisation for pressure equipment.

‘Flow Coating’ is ideal for coating items with complex geometrical structures. This technology provides a number of interesting benefits when compared to other coating technologies.

Because of the reinforcing mechanism of silicon alloyed cast iron along with the combination of additive pearlite-stabilising elements, a type of cast iron has been created that no longer has the most significant negative properties of Si alloyed cast iron: i.e., breakages caused by the brittleness on exposure to shock loading.

Functional surfaces add value to products, making them more competitive. These surfaces can be achieved with coatings, by applying structures or by a combination of both techniques. There are a huge amount of options. Sirris shows you this potential in a new e-book that is now ready for you to download.

Sirris is helping JTEKT Torsen to optimise its products through better materials management and layout.
