Within the Interreg project Factory 4.0, the partners from Northern France, Wallonia and West-Flanders supported companies in accelerating their transformation into a factory of the future. In this way, the project aims to contribute to the economic mutation of the border area, even after its termination.

On the assembly line in the Sirris lab in Kortrijk, One Two, a company known for their Action Trackers, recently conducted a few experiments. The purpose of the experiments was to investigate whether the Action Tracker could be used to register or start certain actions on a production line of, for example, a manufacturing company.

In Industry 4.0, design and manufacturing are closely linked. This is the starting point for the merger of the Prototyping Xpo and MNE trade fairs into a single fair for the entire value chain, from innovative design in small volumes to the production and marketing of series. Prototyping-MNE, in which Sirris also participates, will take place on 5 and 6 February in Kortrijk.

A time registration system was recently installed on the smart assembly line in the Sirris lab in Kortrijk. The assembly line is used to demonstrate how technology can support the operator in several assembly actions.

With the prospect of increased sales Hydroko decided to increase the production of its smart water tap and planned to set up a new assembly line. Because this SME has little or no experience in setting up a new production line, they turned to Sirris.

For more than 20 years Sirris has been involved with adhesive bonding. Sirris is pleased to make its skills and expertise available to companies.
