Industry Leader in Optical Granulometry

Our Photoanalysis systems have helped companies world-wide save millions of dollars by preventing equipment down-time, improving productivity, enhancing personnel health & safety and optimizing processes.

How it Started

WipWare invented optical granulometry at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada with the creation of WIEP (Waterloo Image Enhancement Process), later renamed WipFrag. The commercial introduction of WipFrag in 1986 positioned the company as the industry leader in optical granulometry of fragmented material.  

From DOS to iOS

Like other long-standing, industry-standard software packages, the WipFrag of today bears little resemblance to its primitive ancestor. 

The original WipFrag was a command-line application that ran on DOS from floppy discs at a time when even importing a small image into a computer was a challenge. The latest version runs on iOS, Android and Windows to analyze images taken with an iPad, iPhone, Android device or imported from another camera device.
