Who is better placed to explain what Sirris can do for you than our member companies themselves? Here are a few examples from various domains, to show what you can expect from us.

Opensourcetechnologieën en rapid development-platformen verlagen de instapdrempel voor kleine spelers. Alleen kennen ze niet altijd het verbeterpotentieel van hun systemen of hoe ze de implementatie ervan kostenefficiënt aanpakken. Met het VIS-traject ‘Mechatronica voor innovatievolgers’ zet Sirris hen op weg.
By applying for and winning funding from Innoviris to support a PhD research project in collaboration with Brussels-based software developer 3E, Sirris aims to drive a solution that helps companies monitoring and optimizing production processes to better estimate future performance, predict equipment failures and schedule pro-active maintenance based on advanced data analysis and simulation techniques. The project completed its first year in 2015, which was focused on gaining better knowledge and insights into the challenges related to data exploration in the domain.
Picanol specialises in the development, production and sale of high-tech weaving machines. Increasingly, these machines are capturing large quantities of operational data and settings that could generate a lot of useful information. How all this data can best be converted into useful data-driven services has been the subject of a two-year intensive dialogue between Picanol and Sirris.
As a software integrator Acsone focuses on developing customised business software applications. This is a highly labour-intensive business model that is hard to scale, a situation that encouraged the Brussels-based company to diversify its activities. Sirris helped it make the transition from custom software to a standard Software as a Service (SaaS) product in the construction market. Via a series of Sirris workshops Acsone mastered lean startup methodology.
Many contracts, e-mails and invoices from banks and government authorities are generated with software developed by Antwerp-based Inventive Designers. So far, the company has only offered the software on-site. But if it is to continue growing, then it will have to transition to Software as a Service (SaaS). To facilitate the process, the company entered into a long-term relationship with Sirris. This involved setting up an advisory board of experts, among other things.
In Perk, located in the 'green belt' around Brussels, 200 experienced SAP consultants work at the Belgian division of Movilitas. These experts in logistics management, manufacturing and traceability support companies in such industries as pharmaceuticals, food and aviation. Their mission? Help companies to monitor their supply chains optimally, efficiently and transparently, for example to limit knock-offs. In an effort to support its ongoing growth, the company consulted Sirris.
CG Power Systems, a manufacturer of transformers for onshore and offshore wind turbines, wanted to test its transformers under extreme weather conditions. And to have these tests performed simultaneously for various versions. An ideal task for Sirris' OWI Lab.
Wind power is the energy of the future. But wind turbines must be reliable. Even under extreme weather conditions. To that end, Sirris's OWI Lab tested ZF's 80-tonne gearboxes in its unique climate chamber at the port of Antwerp.
Under the umbrella of the EcoMechatronics project, Sirris and Flanders Make provided support for Sint-Truiden-based company Punch Powertrain in developing a more energy-efficient control strategy for hybrid vehicle powertrains.
In conjunction with the Mechatronics 4.0 project team, Benes was able to effectively apply rapid prototyping to the development of a high-accuracy printer feeder table and associated software. This technique makes it possible to test out and optimise concepts in a short period of time.
