We oversee glass quality
During university the two founders of Viprotron GmbH were fascinated by modern image processing, and already then they began to investigate the possible applications of this digital technology. After successfully finishing their studies, Kai Vogel (B.Sc. robotics/automation) and Andreas Sandner (B.Sc. mechanical engineering) spent many years in a specialized company that dealt with surface inspection, where they both discovered their passion for glass inspection.
Together they developed their business idea of developing a high quality glass scanner for architectural glass that was to; have a long lifespan, function reliably and provide a good price-quality ratio. In 2004 their vision became a business and the Viprotron GmbH was founded.
In that same year the first prototype was installed in the company Glas-Dreibusch in Goldbach near Aschaffenburg. In the following year the two managing directors closed a shipping deal with the globally operating company Saint-Gobain Glass. Almost simultaneously a partnership contract was drawn up between Viprotron and the machine manufacturer Bystronic Glass. Since then Viprotron machinery can be integrated directly into their glass production line using perfectly fitting OEM cutting lines.
Leading innovation amongst glass scanners
Today Viprotron GmbH is a leader amongst quality scanner technology. There are currently more than 200 of our scanner systems operating in the glass industry worldwide, actively providing reliable quality control. The innovative image processing systems are installed by us and are adapted to the local individual processes within the production line. Once installed the systems ensure a high quality within glass production and processing, as well as saving time and money through the optimization of the production process. Most importantly, they allow our customers to succeed in the continuously increasing quality expectation of their market.
Made in Germany
Our machinery is produced in Pfungstadt near Darmstadt, where we are continuously developing our systems and adapting them to the wishes and needs of our clients. 20 employees, their dedication and skill and more than 20 years of field specific experience continue to help us improve on our already high position within the field of glass quality scanners.
