We help industry integrate real-time physical chemical analysis solutions to optimize process and quality control.
EQUIPMENT FOR REAL-TIME 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.
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.
- Detection of superficial foreign bodies.
- Reduction of losses, claims and/or returns.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
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.
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.

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 Visum Palm™ 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 with hyperspectral technology which we use to achieve our mission "to make delicious and nutritious food".
