Carrying out inspections on business-critical objects and production installations can prevent loss of quality and production stoppages. It is preferable that these inspections are carried out on a regular basis and in the same manner. Cobots can offer suitable solutions in several cases.

In order to make the opportunities presented by Factory 4.0 more tangible, Sirris and two French partners, CITC and Cetim, have each built a demonstrator that is available for companies.

An important aspect of the demonstrator in the Smart & Digital Factory Application Lab in Kortrijk is data integration. Connecting the different elements of production systems is one of the six skills of a smart, agile factory.

The latest issue of the Interreg Factory 4.0 Project newsletter keeps you up-to-date with progress, events and testimonies.

A new colleague has recently joined our team in Kortrijk: a cooperative robot!

On 29 April, the Smart & Digital Factory Lab in Kortrijk received a delegation from Argentina. The visitors showed a strong interest in the possibilities of Industry 4.0 and what it can bring to the cooperation between man and robot.

On the 13th of June, you can come to our Kortrijk branch for an introduction to the newest addition to our infrastructure: an industrial robot, which will be able to work close to people, and an AGV. This presentation fits in the context of the official opening of the Factory for the Future Mechanical Engineering & Mechatronics labs.

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.

On 25 January 2019 the ‘Digitisation and Robotics’ working group from Limburg in the Netherlands visited the operator support pilot project in Diepenbeek to garner inspiration for their own region.

Sirris has built a new demonstrator for making the opportunities offered by cobots more tangible. In this specific demonstration an operator is supported during the assembly of a smart product. We will introduce it to you on 28 November.
