Benefits of working with IRIS Technology

We are here to listen to you

We listen carefully to your problems, understand them and offer you the best solution. Each solution is flexible and adapts to your needs.

We provide turnkey solutions

We build quality control equipment and artificial intelligence software that best suits each need and industry. We work hand in hand with you in a seamless co-creation process, until the final solution is implemented in your industrial site.

We are experts in what we do

We are leaders in the manufacture and implementation of photonics technologies for industry. Our quality control equipment is used for food analysis, food classification, pharmaceutical analysis, chemical analysis and even in industries such as plastics - for the classification and recycling of plastics - and wood or packaging, among others, to control various manufacturing processes.


The use of VISUM Palm™ represents a great revolution when it comes to keeping process quality under control. This equipment provides us with reliable, real-time information and cost-saving data on the total acidity and polar content of the frying oil on the production line. VISUM Palm™ is a portable NIR equipment that provides us with useful data for determining the quality of fried products, such as moisture and fat percentages. This feature helps to save on laborious laboratory tasks and allows our employees to concentrate on other value-added tasks. The return on investment is clear and well founded.

At Almirall, we focus on quality, innovation and continuous improvement to make our processes more effective and efficient. For this reason, last year we integrated the new Visum Palm™ handheld NIR analyser into our quality control laboratory, which in our case is designed to determine various quality parameters in several products online. Thanks to the excellent communication between IRIS Technology Solutions and Almirall, the process of developing the machine learning models and qualifying the device for our technical requirements was smooth and agile. At Almirall, we know that this is just the first step on a prosperous path alongside IRIS towards the implementation of other PAT solutions, as part of our commitment to the Industry 4.0 paradigm.

Director of Pharmaceutical Industrial Development at Almirall

Thanks to the good work done between the IRIS Technology and GESCASER teams, we have been able to benefit greatly from the development of global solutions that have been achieved with CTC+, a software capable of providing very detailed information on the quality of the stored grain, as well as the addition of a prediction system, based on artificial intelligence tools, which learns from previous experiences in the silo, thus improving the efficiency of the ventilation system. For GESCASER, this software represented a qualitative leap appreciated by our customers.

Managing Director of GESCASER

IRIS Technology is a clear example of how an SME can make a significant contribution to the founding sectors of SPIRE 8. IRIS' commitment from the moment they joined the association has exceeded expectations. They have a very well-balanced professional technical and human team, with a high and strong commitment to meet challenges and strive for excellence. Without a doubt, their vision has allowed them to take advantage of all the opportunities to belong to our community and to find new market opportunities.

In summary, the VISUM Palm™ portable NIR equipment is robust, user-friendly and has great potential. We and Professor Elliott's team have been working in the field of food authenticity and vegetable oil specificity for several years and have been looking for opportunities to make food analysis fast, portable and cost-effective. With the right application, Visum Palm™ meets all requirements.

Within the framework of a European research project, Optoprecision GmbH has been working closely with IRIS experts for several years. In an excellent working environment between colleagues from both companies, highly professional software solutions have been efficiently developed, tailored to the needs of the application in close cooperation between different partners.

Markus Nägele, PhD

Head of the analysis technology department at OptoPrecision GmbH

As part of the EU-funded H2020 project, Agrimax, we at Nofima tested the feasibility of a selection of fast, non-destructive sensors to monitor and control different extraction processes. To check the dry matter content in the monitoring of cutin paste, expensive, high-resolution laboratory equipment from a market-leading brand was compared with IRIS Technology's VISUM Palm™ portable NIR equipment, achieving surprisingly similar results. Although both systems were able to perform the analysis with the same level of accuracy, Visum Palm™ offers the added advantage of measuring at a fairly small location, allowing high quality spectra to be obtained even on hard, bulk samples.

Chief Scientist at Nofima

The development proposal that we presented together was a great challenge. Despite the unforeseen technical and scientific difficulties, a higher target than expected was reached and today BIMBO Iberia has Visum® equipment with hyperspectral technology with which we fulfil our mission of "making delicious and nutritious food".

During the development of the project EIC Acceleator H2020 Tomapaint GA 101009114 we had the opportunity to work closely with the experts from IRIS for 2 years. The IRIS work was very important for the progress of the project, providing us highly professional hardware, software and support. The VISUM® devices were very well fitted in our plant, thanks also to an efficient and close collaboration with our partners.
