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.

Infections and infectious diseases are a continuous threat to human health. According to the European Centre for Disease prevention and Control (ECDC), over 4 million people are estimated to acquire a HealthCare Associated Infection (HCAI). The number of deaths occurring as a direct consequence of these infections is estimated to be at least 37.000, and these infections are thought to contribute to an additional 110.000 deaths each year. At a workshop held on 20-21 March 2018 in Ljubljana, devoted to implications for cleaning procedures on the application of antimicrobial coatings in healthcare settings, Sirris presented how to measure the durability of AMCs for healthcare applications.
Growth in the microdomain is driven by IoT applications and other connected and smart products, as has been demonstrated by Micro-Lab products throughout 2018.
Vandewiele NV, a well-known weaving machine and textile system manufacturer, studied the options to implement laser curing to increase the quality of the machines and, at the same time, shorten the turnaround time.
Mariasteen is a manufacturing industry supplier. The West Flanders sheltered workshop has an experienced technical department. Like many other manufacturing companies, they often work on short-term jobs. This results in a higher variety of products, a decrease in repetitive work and an increase in complex work for employees.
JTEKT Torsen was able to make automotive differentials lighter. The products were optimised through better management of materials and their layout.
Polymar specialises in plastics but wanted to expand their range of products for equestrian sports with items made of multi-materials. They contacted Sirris with regard to material testing and advice.
Siemens PLM Software develops software for virtual testing and simulation of composite production processes. Siemens takes a leading position in the development of Digital Twin solutions for companies through the close integration of 3D computer-aided engineering (CAE) and tests. Accurate flow simulations can, for example, be carried out for composite production processes using Simcenter 3D (Siemens product life cycle management (PLM) Software). Sirris supported Siemens PLM Software (Leuven) when validating the results of this advanced simulation system.
Lowist Toegangsbeheer installs and maintains automatic bollards for the public sector. After 15 years, the company is now an established fact in Bilzen in the Limburg region of Belgium. Lowist has realised many projects for cities and municipalities. An initial small innovation in 2010 consisting of the development of its own control system via a PLC to display error information and to adjust specific settings using the control system was already a step forward.
Gra-fix approached Sirris with the idea to use a coating to fixate gravel on driveways and garden paths to create a rigid surface and to prevent the formation of tracks. After the development process Gra-fix is planning to offer the fixation product through DIY centres and construction companies.
The Dutch VeroMetal company offers a unique process that can be used to finish any surface or design with a metal coating using a cold process. A mixture of a binder and metal powder can be sprayed, poured or applied using a spatula and dries to create a surface with the optical and physical properties of metal. The surface can be sanded, polished, patinised or oxidised during post-processing.
