Belgian start-up Pick-it wants to make automation with robots more accessible by allowing them to ‘see’ and is therefore organising a demonstration of its vision system using Sirris’ infrastructure.

To optimise its operations and increase the working comfort for its staff, the non-profit association Kringloopcentrum Zuid-West-Vlaanderen chose to develop an ergonomic textile sorting system and automated packaging of the discharge flow.

Since the fifth edition of the Factory of the Future Awards, our country has ten more companies with a Factory of the Future title, the award granted by Sirris and Agoria to companies that best succeed in reconciling the technologies of the future with work tailored to people and the environment. One of the winners is Niko, market leader in switchgear, sockets and home automation.

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.

With the arrival of the KMR iiwa at our location in Diepenbeek, Sirris had a cobot with 'arms and legs’ for a short period of time. This allowed our experts to test and explore the potential of a mobile cobot, and we can now make this knowledge (as well as the cobot) available to companies.

Duva Choc-O-Fruits is specialised in chocolate coated candied fruit. For one of its products the SME considered automating one or more production steps. The manipulation of these natural products entails specific challenges, which require a special approach.

For Analis, Sirris is developing prototype tooling for the injection of fluidic chips that include micro-details.

flexibele automatisering

The 2017 edition of Motek, one of the key trade fairs for the automation of production and assembly, could once again count on significant interest and thousands of visitors. Sirris travelled to Stuttgart to take a look for the Belgian industry.


Flexible production automation using cobots for example is no hype - it’s necessary. Nonetheless, successful implementation is not that straightforward. We’ve extended our support facilities and know-how for this type of automation at our application labs in Kortrijk and Diepenbeek. Why not start using them now!

volautomatisch monitoren, cnc-machines

The company Dierickx developed a fully automated control unit which monitors the quality of coolant on CNC processing centres and regulates the fluid level.
