Our Solutions

Turnkey digital solutions for industry


Thanks to the good work done between the teams of IRIS Technology and GESCASER, we have been able to get a great benefit from the end-to-end solutions development they have done for us with CTC+, a software capable of providing very detailed information of the stored grain quality as well as adding a prediction system, based on artificial intelligence tools, which learns from previous experiences in the silo, improving the efficiency of the ventilation system. For GESCASER, this software has been a qualitative leap that our customers have been grateful for.

Our Innovation Lines

We excel in the most relevant Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) for pioneering Industry 4.0 innovation


IRIS is a clear example of how an SME can greatly contribute to SPIRE 8 founding sectors. IRIS’ commitment since the moment they joined the association has overcome the expectations. They have a technical and human well-balanced professional team, with a high and great engagement to face challenges and pursue excellence. No doubt their vision has allowed them to seize every opportunity of belonging to our community and find new market opportunities.

Àngels Orduña Cao

Executive Director A. SPIRE

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

IIoT Solutions

IIoT Solutions

We convert industrial devices- such as sensors, valves, switches, field devices…- into ‘smart devices’ with the capabilities to send data to HMI and SCADA systems or the cloud.
A network of connected industrial devices and machines can collect, exchange, monitor, analyse, and provide new insights that can improve all aspects of your business.

Industrial Cloud Platforms

Industrial Cloud Platforms

Industrial cloud platforms with a deep focus on operational technology.
We build Industrial Cloud Platforms allowing data gathering throughout manufacturing production processes (and indeed across sites), in order to improve performance as well as predict failures before they happen.

AI & Deep Learning

Deep learning is a subset of machine learning where artificial neural networks, algorithms inspired by the human brain, learn from large amounts of data through Artificial Intelligence. The Deep learning solutions provided by IRIS allow machines to solve complex problems even when using a data set that is very diverse, unstructured and inter-connected.


Thanks to the good work done between the teams of IRIS Technology and GESCASER, we have been able to get a great benefit from the end-to-end solutions development they have done for us with CTC+, a software capable of providing very detailed information of the stored grain quality as well as adding a prediction system, based on artificial intelligence tools, which learns from previous experiences in the silo, improving the efficiency of the ventilation system. For GESCASER, this software has been a qualitative leap that our customers have been grateful for.

Process & Quality Control Systems

We help industry integrate real-time physical chemical analysis solutions to optimize process and quality control.


Under the Visum® brand, we manufacture end-to-end solutions to improve quality and control production processes in a wide variety of industries. Our systems based on NIR spectroscopy, Hyperspectral imaging, Raman spectroscopy and Machine Vision provide real-time information and results. Visum® brings the laboratory to the production line.


Online spectroscopy

We combine NIRS (Near-Infrared Spectroscopy), Hyperspectral Imaging (HSI) and real-time Raman spectroscopy, among other photonic techniques such as UV and fluorescence with artificial intelligence tools and software to develop solutions for the analysis and sorting of food, grains, plastics, organic and inorganic waste, wood panels, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, cosmetics, among a wide variety of materials and mixtures.


Machine Vision & Deep Learning

We use our knowledge in optics, software and engineering to develop machine vision systems and neural networks -or deep learning- to distinguish and classify anomalies, characters and natural variations in complex patterns. Our machine vision systems are used for the control and analysis of defects in grains, nuts, fish, labeling, packaging, among the most popular technology applications.



  • Real-time monitoring of physical and chemical parameters.
  • Industrial use and does not require specialized personnel.
  • Possibility of analyzing multiple parameters simultaneously.
  • Time savings in laboratory analysis, inputs or visual inspection.
  • Real time information to rectify processes and optimize decision making.

Visum™ Devices

Non-destructive, accurate and real-time analytical solutions. Get to know our Visum® line of devices.


The use of the VISUM Palm represents a huge revolution in terms of keeping the quality of the processes under control. This portable nir equipment brings us real-time and reliable information and cost-saving data about total acidity and the content of the polar components in the frying oil of the production line. VISUM Palm is a handheld NIR equipment that gives us useful data to determine the quality of fried products, like moisture and fat percentages. This functionality helps to save on arduous lab tasks and allows our employees to focus on other high value-added duties. The return on investment is clear and well founded.

Marina Diana

Scientific Research Manager at EUROPASTRY, S.A.

At Almirall, we are committed to quality, innovation and the continuous improvement to make our processes more effective and efficient. For this reason, last year we incorporated into our quality control laboratory the new portable NIR analyzer VISUM Palm, intended, in our case, for the online determination of different quality parameters in multiple products. 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 has been fluid and agile. At Almirall, we know that this is only the first step on a prosperous path together with IRIS towards the implementation of other PAT solutions, framed in our commitment to the Industry 4.0 paradigm.

José Martínez

Industrial Pharmaceutical Development Manager at Almirall

In short, VISUM Palm is a robust, portable NIR equipment that is easy to use and has a lot of potential. We and Professor Elliott's team have been working in the field of food authenticity and vegetable oil speciation for several years and are looking for opportunities to make food analysis fast, portable and cost-effective. With the right application, the VisumPalm ticks all the boxes.

Dr. Tassos Koidis’ team

Research Leader and Lecturer in Food Science and Nutrition at Queen's University Belfast

Under the framework of the EU funded H2020 project, Agrimax, in Nofima we have been testing the feasibility of selected rapid and non-destructive sensors for monitoring and controlling different extraction processes. Testing the dry matter content in cutin paste monitoring, an expensive and high-resolution lab instrument from a leading brand has been compared with the hand-held VISUM Palm, yielding strikingly similar results. While both systems were capable of performing the analysis with the same level of accuracy, the VISUM PALM offers the added advantage of measuring on a quite small spot, thereby enabling high-quality spectra to also be obtained from hard and bulk samples.

Dr. Jens Petter Wold

Senior scientist at Nofima

The development proposal we jointly presented was highly challenging. Despite the unforeseen and technical/scientific difficulties, a higher than expected target was achieved and today BIMBO Iberia has Visum equipment with hyperspectral technology which we use to achieve our mission "to make delicious and nutritious food".
