Plasma for Environment
IRIS develops plasma technology applications to liquid/solid waste treatment. IRIS patent pending solutions improve technical and economic efficiency of small scale - on site treatments enabling no waste / zero carbon footprint processes.
Laser processing design
IRIS develops smart self adaptive solutions for the efficient exploitation of laser processes: cutting, welding, direct metal deposition. The focus is on process set up, characterization and validation vs. performance target and green labelling.
IRIS supports partner companies in developing applications based on the use of laser and plasma technologies through all project phases: idea definition, fund raising, benchmark, R&D programs, engineering, partners search, exploitation of research results.
IRIS specialises in process definition and characterisation against performance indicators on production time reduction, cost savings and energy & resource efficiency of next generation Additive Manufacturing machines. This is a business growth area and we are expanding our workforce.

2013-10 ECOWELD project kickoff. Ecoweld is a MESAP project to develop a self programming automated laser welding system. IRIS is involved in the project by main contractor SL to support Project Management, Planning and Execution.
2013-10 WHITE'R project kickoff. White'R is a 3 year EU 7FP project developing a self-contained clean room consisting in a multi-robotic island that can be easily integrated in existing production shop-floors. It empowers the handling, assembly and disassembly of high value added optoelectronic products. The island’s devices - robots, operation units, transport, handling and tooling systems - are conceived as “Plug&Produce” mechatronic modules properly configured coherently with the production requirements. IRIS is partner and responsible for dissemination and exploitation of project results
