Within a European project, Sirris is responsible for the production (through additive manufacturing) and testing of samples. In this context we have been developing copper and copper alloys on our electron beam melting machine.

In the INSIDE Metal AM project Sirris, CRM and BIL investigated the technological and economical feasibility of 3D printing with steel. Next to understanding all the opportunities for redesign and added value, there are also economical and technical questions to be answered. It was the goal of the INSIDE Metal AM project to provide a foothold for Belgian companies considering the use of 3D printing with steel. The most important conclusions from this project have now been summarised in a white paper, free to download.

The intention to start using AM too often bumps into a lack of expertise and know-how. Here is where projects such as INSIDE metal AM come to your aid. It’s not just about selecting applications suited for AM, in a next step the right technologies for the job have to be identified and implemented. Here is your chance to learn all about this recently closed project.

Belgium is the fourth most productive country in the world, but our productivity growth has been sputtering. In this series we present five practical tips each time to boost productivity in the office and on the shop floor.

In the INSIDE Metal AM project Sirris, CRM and BIL investigated the technological and economical feasibility of 3D printing with steel. Here is a short story about the demonstrator parts that were realised.

Sirris has acquired a new portable X-ray diffraction stress measurement system. The system is unique in Belgium and provides a very powerful tool to measure the quality of all types of parts (cast, forged, machined, etc.) and processes (such as welding, 3D printing, shot peening or heat treatment). Its ability to characterise local stress is key to improve processing conditions.

After successfully completing a project on laser beam melting (LBM), Sirris switches over to a new generation of machines. This means we say goodbye to our metal 3D printer Concept Laser M2 and we give you the opportunity to buy our machine!

3D printing with steel offers tremendous opportunity, but how do you do it? There are so many choices to make and points to consider when taking your first steps in this amazing world. Even if you already have some experience, you may encounter hurdles that are difficult to take. Sirris, CRM and BIL have been working together in the INSIDE Metal AM project, and we want to share with you what we have learned about steel 3D printing.

Additve Talks is another approach to delivering 3D printing and AM resources. This day brings together additive manufacturing players and experts from vertical industries so that they can exchange on various topics. Sirris too will make a contribution on costs and considerations for investing in an AM system.

The EPO treats plants and plant varieties obtained by essentially biological processes (crossing, hybridisation, selective breeding) as non-patentable in principle.
