Viscom celebrates anniversary: Top quality in inspection technology – for 25 years

Sep 26, 2009

The Viscom AG celebrates its anniversary in October 2009. For 25 years, the company has developed and produced inspection systems in Hanover. With innovative inspection solutions such as the AOI/AXI combi-system X7056, wafer inspection or wirebond control, Viscom sets the standards in quality assurance. Top quality in inspection technology is the company hallmark. As one of the leading suppliers in electronic assembly inspection worldwide, the company has also come to stand for first-class solutions in semiconductor or computed tomography.

25 years ago, in 1984, Viscom was founded as a private company for industrial image processing by Dr. Martin Heuser and Volker Pape. This places them among the pioneers in this new technology. The two-person business venture gave rise to a successful high-tech company. Viscom is now represented around the world, with branches in Singapore, the USA and France as well as international representatives.

Initially, concentration in the 42 m² Hanover facility was on development of image processing software. The first contracts for CD inspection soon followed. These first years also saw projects such as image processing for centering logs, or film analysis. Yet very early on, inspection of electronic assemblies drew the attention of the founders. Success has proven them right: the company has become European market leader in electronics assembly inspection and one of the top suppliers in this sector worldwide.

But this is not the only area where Viscom has proven its success. Currently, the Viscom AG is the only supplier to cover nearly all areas of optical inspection and non-destructive testing. One focus is the electronics and automotive industries with their high demands for quality, although customers from aviation and aerospace technology, as well as medical technology or the foodstuffs industry, also rely on Viscom.

Its constant innovation has won Viscom international recognition as the specialist in production quality assurance. In addition to electronics assemblies, Viscom inspection systems also examine heart pacemakers and light bulbs, MEMS components in the semiconductor industry or motor controls for the automotive supplier industry.

It has been some time since only camera systems were employed for inspection. In addition to high resolution line scanners, Viscom utilizes proprietary X-ray, computed tomography or infrared technologies – depending on which technology offers the best solutions.

Technological leadership, reliable system quality and authoritative consultation are the essential preconditions for this success. Close, cooperative partnership with the customer guarantees practice-oriented solutions: high performance, flexible and user-friendly.
