WAGO in Mechanical Engineering

Your Partner for the Transformation

The mechanical engineering industry is facing new demands and challenges: simultaneous cost reduction and performance improvement, Industry 4.0 and more flexible production. In these times of transformation, WAGO is your expert guide, supporting you with innovative solutions and reliable products – in all sectors.

On the Road to the Smart Factory with WAGO

The production line of the future will not only be networked and intelligent, it will also possess some self-control and self-optimization capabilities, making it resource-efficient. For the transformation to an “intelligent factory,” the existing processes will be networked, and data on all products, machines and process data will be recorded. Automation solutions, such as the WAGO I/O System 750, are available for capturing and securely transferring data into a “Manufacturing Execution System” (MES) or product management system.


Control Cabinet Construction: from Project Planning to Commissioning

Ordering and production processes are becoming increasingly digital. The goal: Consistency and data transparency along the entire value-added chain in order to save time and lower costs. To support this horizontal integration, WAGO offers smartDATA Engineering, a solution that supports users from planning and design, to engineering, to testing and commissioning their control cabinet.


WAGO Technology for Mechanical Engineering

Ever greater speed, precision and flexibility – the demands made of mechanical engineering are constantly increasing. At the same time, machines and systems in production facilities are becoming more and more tailored. The right tools are essential. WAGO supplies the perfect products to help customers realize their projects, including our PROFINET fieldbus coupler and our e!DISPLAY.


Data Acquisition

Industry 4.0 and big data are opening up unexpected possibilities for new business models, so it is important to leverage valuable data collections. WAGO’s flexible and durable automation solutions reliably transfer data from the field level for use by the cloud or an MES without errors; existing systems can be retrofitted conveniently as well. Furthermore, various interfaces and fieldbuses, such as CANopen, PROFIBUS DP, DeviceNet and MODBUS-TCP, can also be utilized independently of the manufacturer.
