VMA - Your specialist for optical and non-contact measuring techniques in the glass industry.
Our highly qualified engineers develop optoelectronic measuring and test systems used in the production of container glass and flat glass all over the world. We also offer special customised solutions for all your glass requirements e.g the production of tube glass and rolled glass.
Our systems incorporate optical, non-contact measuring technology that reliably detects thin areas in the glass without leaving any traces. VMA products also reduce your workload because our systems do not require time-consuming recalibration, even after continuous use.
We adapt our systems to your plant equipment according to your wishes and can even train your personnel. Unique remote diagnostic technology and a remote maintenance service are available for larger systems used in flat glass production, for example.
