Process & Quality Control Systems

Real time control: We help industry to integrate real-time physical chemical control solutions to optimise quality control.

Real time control: From Lab to Line

Under the Visum™ brand we manufacture industrial solutions with NIR technology, Raman spectroscopy, Artificial Vision and other combined photonic techniques. We develop turnkey projects for process and quality control and automation in real time for industry.


In-line spectroscopy

We combine NIR technology and Raman spectroscopy, among other photonic techniques such as fluorescence or hyperspectral technology together with machine learning tools and software for the development of analytical and control solutions for production lines.



Artificial Vision

We use our knowledge in optics, software and engineering to develop artificial vision systems and neural networks -or deep learning- to distinguish and classify anomalies, characters and natural variations in complex patterns.



  • 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.
  • Detection of superficial foreign bodies.
  • Reduction of losses, claims and/or returns.

The use of the VISUM Palm represents a huge revolution in terms of keeping the quality of the processes under control. It 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 also 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.

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 VISUM Palm analyzer, 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.

All and all, VISUM Palm is a solid piece of equipment that is portable, user-friendly and has a lot of potential. We and Prof Elliott’s team are working in the area of food authenticity and vegetable oil speciation for a number of years now and looking for opportunities to make the analysis fast, portable and cost-effective. With the right application the VisumPalm ticks all the boxes.

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.

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 that we use to achieve our mission "to make delicious and nutritious food".
