WE INSPECT GLASS QUALITY – FROM VISION TO TECHNOLOGY LEADER
During university, the two founders of Viprotron GmbH were fascinated by modern image processing, and already at that time 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 creating a high quality glass scanner for architectural glass, that is long-lasting, works reliably and has a good cost-benefit value. In 2004 their vision was transformed into a business – Viprotron was founded.
In the same year the first prototype was installed at Glas Dreisbusch, a glass manufacturer in Goldbach near Aschaffenburg. The following year, the two managing directors closed a shipping deal for the equipment of insulating glass lines with the globally operating company Saint-Gobain Glass.
Almost at the same time, the partnership contract with Bystronic Glass, a manufacturer of glass processing machines, was also signed. Since then, Viprotron systems can be integrated directly into their glass production lines using perfectly fitting OEM cutting lines.
Based on our corporate values, we have developed guidelines that give direction to each employee on how we develop, install and maintain each of our systems.
Committment to quality Our mission is to provide optimal, time and cost-saving quality control within glass manufacturing and processing.
Passion and perfection We love glass as well as fast and efficient work flows. Our products reflect these values.
Individual and ready to use Each system is adapted to its individual function within the production line and when installed is instantly ready to use.
By people – for people Our team is a reliable partner for our customers and understands the processes in their production lines.
Thinking ahead and being involved We assist our customers with high motivation from the early planning, to the execution of the installation, all the way through to service and post-installation support.
Responsibility We have an obligation to contribute our input into optimizing and preparing glass manufacturing and processing for the future.
Our machinery is the best example of innovative technology Made in Germany. The systems are developed and continuously upgraded to the latest standards at our headquarters in Pfungstadt near Darmstadt. More than 20 highly qualified specialists with know-how from a total of more than 250 years of experience in the industry, form a team which consistently expands our leading position.
