The Sirris test laboratories are investigating the reliability of material certificates that come with metals. Do you want to know how reliable your certificate is? Send us a metal sample with material certificate and we will examine the chemical composition or tensile strength of your sample free of charge!

Shorter product-to-market-times and higher expectations for sustainability, reliability and quality have ensured that product tests form an important link in the development process of products.

Because a short lead time is also essential in the services provided by Sirris, we examined our own operations to see if we could improve and reduce our lead times. To this end we called on our own expertise in quick response manufacturing (QRM).

Testing is essential to guarantee continuous quality to your customer. However, you have to make sure the test results are reliable and correct. Standards are constantly increasing. And Sirris is more than aware of that. That is why we want to expand our network of accredited quality tests. An accreditation according to ISO 17025 offers much more security, also as an extra check for those who have their own test lab.

In the context of the event 'Optimising Wind Farms In Cold Climates' which took place on 17 and 18 October in Antwerp, OWI-Lab welcomed a delegation from the wind industry. The event focuses both on the commercial and technical complexities, which form an obstacle for the operation of wind farms. This was perfectly demonstrated in the climate chamber of OWI-Lab.

The Sirris Coating Lab has recently purchased a TQC Scrub Abrasion and Washability Tester to perform scrub abrasion and washability tests on coated materials.

Coatings can be used to protect materials against the effects of rust, mould or dirt. This is why the Nanex Company, a manufacturer of protective products, is collaborating with the Sirris Smart Coating Lab in using nanotechnology to develop and improve existing product formulations.

Our test labs are probably one of our strengths. We do not only want to keep it like that, we would also like to expand in the future. High time to introduce you to these extended services, during a few open house days.
