Flanders Make breakfast session: Invitation

In the spring of 2019, Flanders Make, the strategic research centre for the manufacturing industry, will organise a couple of regional breakfast sessions. The purpose of these breakfast sessions is to present our competences and services in everything related to the design of mechatronic systems within multi-disciplinary environments. To facilitate the digestion of this rather complex matter, you’ll be offered a free breakfast before we kick off. The following session will take place in Diepenbeek.


Friday 29 March 2019 from 8 to 11 am.


Auditorium UHasselt/EDM
Wetenschapspark 2
3590 Diepenbeek
Route description



  • Design of mechatronic systems
  • Product family engineering
  • Concurrent design
  • Structural optimisation

Design challenges that we will discuss:

  • The complexity of products and production systems increases continiously.
  • The number of available design tools and hardwar technologies for product development never ceases to increases.
  • Trend towards connected, intelligent and autonomous systems.
  • The mechatronic industry expects a faster time-to-market and - at th same time - decreasnig design costs.
  • Ever stricter design limitations and requirements in terms of manufacturability, maintainability and safety.
