This motto has been our guide and determined our action since 1985. For over 30 years we have been designing and manufacturing machines and devices for automation of technical processes. In 2009, Kooptech-Cinema was founded and it set a goal to invent and create a complete system for sanitization of 3D glasses used in cinemas for 3D movies projections.

3D glasses are not only a component necessary for viewing 3D movies, they are also a piece of personal use essential for quality of viewed content as well as person’s comfort. Utilizing our know-how and many years of experience we have created a unique, complete system which ensures effectiveness, low operating cost and most of all – safety and Customer’s satisfaction.

Reliability of our system is based on well thought and thoroughly tested solutions currently used by many of our Customers all over the world. We use only the best, reputable suppliers and production technology ensuring the highest product quality.

Our system passed all necessary tests, had been certified (cULus, CE) and is used by the biggest cinema chains and amusement parks in the world.
