Twentieth anniversary

VIPA Italia celebrates this year its twentieth anniversary. As the Italian branch of VIPA GmbH, established in Erlangen in 1985 as System Integrator for industrial automation systems and then approaching the international market as a manufacturer of complete systems and not just components, VIPA Italia was founded in 1998 following the encounter between Wolfgang Seel, founder and current president of VIPA GmbH, and Luigi Bernardelli, CEO of the Brescia-based company, with the aim of creating a widespread structure for the Italian market, a quick and direct support, an efficient warehouse with fast delivery times. Following the acquisition by YASKAWA in 2012, VIPA Italia was able to enhance its offer by integrating its motion solutions with control and visualization products.
VIPA Italia participates in SPS IPC Drives Italia to introduce some important innovations for Industry 4.0 in its range of solutions for industrial automation. Among these, twhe new Smart and Cloud operator panels by VIPA perfectly fit the PLCs of the Slio and Micro families. With the same hardware as the Smart panels, the Cloud ones are the ideal solution for less complex applications, without affecting speed, ease of use or quality.
