An important aspect of the demonstrator in the Smart & Digital Factory Application Lab in Kortrijk is data integration. Connecting the different elements of production systems is one of the six skills of a smart, agile factory.

JEC is an annual event hosted in Paris and offering professionals the opportunity to meet with the composites industry. Summary of the 2019 edition.

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.

A Danish company develops robots to maintain and repair the blades of offshore wind turbines. In this way, a lot of time and money can be saved. Other robots can also be used for offshore applications.

From 15 to 17 January Manie Conradie and Pieter Kesteloot, as representatives for Sirris, participated in the kick-off meeting of the DIH2 project on agile production.

Robots are slowly finding their place in society. Whereas robots are increasingly proving their worth in industry and also gradually establishing their suitability for other fields - for example in care settings - the social home robot has not made as much progress as you might have expected.

In the 1980s, the robot story for Sirris - then still WTCM / CRIF - began with the arrival of the first robot at the University of Leuven. Sirris was able to see the link with industrial needs and since then, its knowledge about robots and their many applications has been built further and expanded in order to help and advise companies as best as possible.

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.

Would a generally applicable tool help polishing experts when polishing basic shapes and surfaces of one‑of‑a‑kind objects, such as injection moulds? Sirris wants to find out... You can help us and benefit from the results!

With the arrival of the KMR iiwa at our branch in Diepenbeek, Sirris has recently added a cobot 'with arms and legs', again a first for Belgium! This cobot is (temporarily) at the disposal of our experts for the purposes of discovering its potential and for interested companies to test it.
