Sirris is involved in a European project whose objective is to develop a new composite concept with complex optimised geometry. It is based on the combination of several technologies, from tailored fibre placement to produce the preform up to manufacture of the mould by incremental sheet forming.

At the request of foundries and their customers, Sirris is organising a course on foundry technology. The course provides you in-depth and practical knowledge on all technology and production related aspects important to casting. The teachers boast years of practical experience and knowledge acquired, which is also reflected in the course’s content and material.

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.

Sirris is playing the role of interim project manager for a start-up that is developing an innovative tea machine that respects the art of tea.

Besides the masterclasses, which are usually rather theoretical instead of practical, the SLC-Lab is now organising a few hands-on sessions where the theory is put into practice. Two sessions are scheduled to take place in the near future, and will deal with manual laminating and mould building, and vacuum infusion and prepreg layup.

Within the framework of a Smart Cities project, Sirris, alongside Multitel, is developing a sensor that measures the filling level of bottle banks, in real time.

The ‘Innovatieve Coatings’ cluster is organising an annual event on 1 February to mark its first anniversary. In addition to an overview of what has been happening and what we can expect, various member testimonials will be discussed, plus a keynote speech by Piet Verhoeve (Hangar K).

Vaude, German manufacturer of strong outdoor shoes, redesigned the entire 2018 summer collection and hereby reduces the footprint of its products. In part, this is due to the use of (more) sustainable materials and innovative technologies, such as a seamless upper.
