nyris Raises 10 Million € to Revolutionize Spare Part Identification in the Manufacturing Industry

nyris, a leading visual search provider, announced today that it has raised 10 million EUR in a funding round led by Trumpf Venture and the European Innovation Council (EIC).

Existing investors eCAPITAL, Inter IKEA Group, SEK and Mücke & Sturm are equally excited about the company and participated in this financing round. The funding will be used to accelerate the adoption of visual search with new generative image data services.

We are thrilled to have the support of Trumpf Venture, the European Innovation Council and our existing investors as we continue to push the boundaries of visual search technology. With the development of new generative data services, we will be able to offer our powerful visual search technology to companies with little or no visual data. Quick and accurate identification of spare parts is a necessity for ultimately reducing machine downtime costs.

Dr. Anna Lukasson-Herzig, CEO, nyris

The new synthetic data pipeline, an innovative approach developed by nyris, uses CAD data to generate photo-realistic spare parts and product images at scale. This new approach aims to address a persistent challenge in the implementation of visual intelligence projects in the industry – access to high-quality, well-structured image data.

TRUMPF Venture is looking forward to teaming up with nyris. They offer the best image recognition solution for industrial applications in the market. That is also the reason why TRUMPF is a client of nyris. Our customers can use their visual search engine through our service platform to easily identify and order spare parts. We intend to support nyris in further developing their industrial product and expanding their business within this sector.
