About IRIS: Our history, this is how it started
This is how it started
IRIS is founded in Barcelona as an advanced engineering company and starts on a journey to scale up promising process optimisation technology and solutions for improving industry.
IRIS expertise in Key Enabling Technologies position the company at the top ten in Spain
Thanks to our vision, and to the talent and hard work of our multidisciplinary team-with analytical, design, production and integration capabilities-, we secure a niche positioning as an innovative R&D and engineering service provider bridging the gap between University and Industry. IRIS successfully delivers on numerous R&D projects in the areas of Process Analytical Technologies (PAT), Photonics, IoT and ICTs, scaling up challenging technologies, generating knowhow and key patents for our business, and contributing to outstanding scientific publications.
Quality in the center
IRIS commits to a programme of continuous quality improvement and obtains certification under ISO 9001:2008 and UNE-EN-ISO 166002: Management Systems R&D&i
VISUM® Family, our real-time monitoring devices are born.
Thanks to our solid R&D track record, we have been able to make significant progress in our own Technology Roadmap, allowing us to design and develop our own devices based on Infrared Spectroscopy and fulfil a mission of integrating novel inline monitoring systems for quality improvement and process standardisation in the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries, among others. Finally, in 2016, the VISUM® brand is born. VISUM® delivers a powerful value proposition to industry: bringing affordable and reliable laboratory analytical capability into manufacturing lines (Lab2Line) and right along the value chain (Lab2Chain) for real-time process monitoring and quality inspection purposes.
Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning to explote the bid data
As the Industry 4.0 Revolution gathers momentum, in 2017 IRIS creates a new Digital unit dedicated to the development of cloud and on-premise smart manufacturing solutions capable of exploiting process/manufacturing data with Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning tools. This adds further strength to our Value Proposition for our clients: the ability to convert data into actionable information for industry and to enable digitised and connected industries and value chains for improved efficiencies, customer orientation, circularity and competitiveness.
New office and new identity but keeping the excellence and hard work
2020 has put us to the test. In a year filled with challenges that they have shook the core of industry and economies across the world, we have pushed forward with even greater strength: deep technology, digitisation and the ability to innovate are core pillars for helping our clients respond and build resilience in the face of a rapidly changing world. As a company, we are grateful to our team, to our clients and to the Open Innovation ecosystem in Europe, for the ability to remain at the forefront of the state-of-the-art for ‘creating your competitive edge’
Internationalisation and opening of new export markets
From 2023, we initiated an accelerated commercial expansion process, bringing our Visum® line of industrial analyser devices to new markets through the development of a commercial distribution network and with a presence in Central America, South America, Europe and Asia in more than 14 countries around the world.
We revolutionise the usability and accessibility of NIR and Raman technologies.
Aware of the limitations in usability, accessibility and openness of process analysers using NIR and Raman technology, we launched Visum Master™ AI-assisted software, the first and only software that automates calibration and method development for non-expert users. We created a new way to experience the technology, facilitating the development, editing and validation of calibrations autonomously by the end user and without the need for intermediaries, making the Visum® line of devices truly open systems capable of meeting the current and future analytical needs of every industry.
