The VOM Network event will focus on achieving competitiveness through people and resources

The third edition of the VOM Network event will take place on 22 November. Its 'Raise your Game' theme will deal with how SMEs can improve their competitiveness in the world of tomorrow. Sirris will also be giving a presentation.

Many SMEs in the surface treatment industry are already forming alliances and grouping themselves into holdings in order to increase their competence. The areas covered include automation using collaborative robot systems with human interfaces and technological innovations such as integrated pre-treatment processes, automation of paint shops and the emergence of 3D printed products. Pascal Pollet, an QRM expert at Sirris, will discuss the strengths of QRM in his presentation "Quick Response Manufacturing: speed as a competitive weapon”.

In addition to the extensive programme of talks, there will also be a mini exhibition.

The VOM Network event will take place on 22 November at ArcelorMittal (Ghent) in Zelzate. You can find more information on the website.
