IK4-IDEKO presented their technologies portfolio in Lovaina

On 6 May, a matchmaking meeting was organised in Leuven, as part of the series of matchmaking events with the EXPLORE project.

The matchmaking meeting involved the Spanish research and technology organisation IK4-IDEKO, that acted primarily from the technology offer perspective, whereas the hosts of the meeting participated from the perspective of the potential end-users of these technologies: Agoria, the Belgian Federation of the Technology Industries, Flanders Make the newly establish established Flemish strategic research centre for the manufacturing industry, Sirris – the Belgian Sirris collective centre for and by the technological industry and KULeuven – section Production Engineering, Machine Design and Automation (PMA). The participants from these local organisations involved group leaders and corporate strategists, each managing industrial user groups related to the different research tracks.

IK4-IDEKO presented their technologies portfolio, including:

  • DAS: Electromagnetic system aimed at reducing / removing vibrations in cutting machines

  • ikDAS: Platform for acquiring and processing signals for machinery-tools

  • Visup3D: Large Raw Part SET-UP System

  • Chip Aspiration System

  • NDT Train Wheels Ultrasonic Advanced Inspection System

  • Aceleration Feedback Software

  • Xtruder Technology An innovative technology to produce regular porous polymeric structures.

  • idkBLUE: Energy consumption measuring and diagnostic device

  • Special Grinding Nozzles

  • INTELSUITE: Competitive Intelligence Software

Flanders Make, Sirris and KULeuven commented their research and innovation areas, with a view to achieving a mutual understanding of the potential leads to the exploitation of the IK4-IDEKO technologies portfolio.

The discussion also covered structured approaches for identification and stimulation of industrial application of innovative technologies (including the EXPLOITT® Method, presented by IDEKO). In addition, the general IPR framework of the projects carried out by Flanders Make was presented, since a cooperation with IK4-IDEKO within these regional projects was also considered as an avenue for further exploitation of the presented technologies.

Information was further dispatched throughout the local organisations and the industrial user groups where relevant. A follow-up contact with IK4-IDEKO was planned the second half of June in order to further discuss further cooperation.
