On 3 March the festive opening took place of the eighth Sirris branch in the buildings of Ghent University, Campus Kortrijk. The focus will be on flexible automation of assembling, to make specific technology applications, including in the context of Factories of the Future and Industry 4.0, available for mechanical engineering and mechatronics companies in West Flanders and beyond.

On 3 March Sirris and POM West Flanders are opening the application laboratory for making specific technology applications related to Factories of the Future and Industry 4.0. It will be at the disposal of local West Flanders companies, as well as other companies throughout Belgium. The site, which becomes Sirris' eighth, forms the initial stage towards realizing the West Flanders plan for 'Factories of the Future' for the mechanical engineering and mechatronics sectors.

In order to make specific technological applications available to industry within the scope of Factories of the Future and Industry 4.0 for example, on 3 March Sirris is opening its eighth office located in Kortrijk. The focus here is on mechanical engineering, mechatronics and assembly. Here's a little peep at what you can expect at the opening (and afterwards)!
