Hanover-based company Viscom has celebrated its 25th anniversary, as of October 2009. For 25 years, the company has developed and produced inspection systems and, 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.

Viscom was founded in 1984 as a private company for industrial image processing by Dr Martin Heuser and Volker Pape. 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 Hanover facility was on development of image processing software. The first contracts for CD inspection soon followed. Early projects included image processing for film analysis, yet inspection of electronic assemblies drew the attention of the founders early in the company's history.

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. As well as high resolution line scanners, Viscom utilises X-ray, computed tomography or infrared technologies, depending on which technology offers the best solutions.
