The Press Shop

In a press shop, finished body parts are created in a variety of steps. Sheet metal is shaped under high pressure in pressing lines. However, subsequent vibrations can result in costly equipment downtime. WAGO products are designed to ensure reliable, maintenance-free connections for all components prevent loose clamping units and high contact resistance.

Why use WAGO?

  • EMC resistance is a basic prerequisite for all of our products, guaranteeing smooth operation – even under severe conditions.
  • Proven spring pressure connection technology reduces costs and increases reliability.
  • We offer complete solutions for logging machine and energy data.


The Body Shop

Producing a 'body in white' places maximum demands on system availability, as well as upon safety and reliability during production. These demands are multiplied when various independently-manufactured products are introduced into the same master system. Fortunately, WAGO products are designed to help meet these challenges quickly, simply and safely.

Why use WAGO?

  • With our screwless and pluggable wiring interfaces, WAGO facilitates faster component exchange.
  • WAGO's automation products speak many languages, such as: PROFINET, PROFIBUS, DeviceNet, CC-Link and many more.
  • WAGO products are an important linkage for M2M communication.
  • With their many approvals, WAGO products are ready for use worldwide.
  • Using WAGO products means simplified integration into complex automation solutions.

The Paint Shop

In the paint shop, many different steps synchronize with one another. It is necessary for conveying equipment, robots and the applications themselves to interact with one another efficiently in order to combine the individual application steps into one smooth process. Because the paint shop is a zero error area, this places the highest demands on electrical components. WAGO offers a wide range of products optimized for a perfect painting process.

Why use WAGO?

  • Intrinsically safe Ex i modules allow use in hazardous locations.
  • WAGO's controllers, as well as M-Bus, MP-Bus, counter, thermocouple and RTD measurement modules help monitor, control and regulate processes.

The Powertrain

The term “powertrain” describes all the areas where components for the powertrain are produced. The focus here is on production of highly precise transmission gears, as well as crankshafts for the engine. The powertrain requires maximum reliability of all automation products: finished components must be ready at the right time for installation in the right engine or transmission. This requirement is fulfilled by WAGO products designed specifically for this application.

Why use WAGO?

  • WAGO's automation products already fulfill IIoT / Industry 4.0 requirements.
  • Setting sensor parameters using I/O modules in the WAGO control environment reduces commissioning and standstill times in your plants.
  • WAGO offers EPSITRON


    PRO Power, the professional power supplies for applications with high output requirements.
  • Electronic fuses help prevent accidental tripping that results from high switch-on currents or unintended system startup in the event of a fault, thus increasing the availability of the equipment.
  • Rail-mount terminal blocks with POWER CAGE CLAMP securely connect large conductors up to 185 mm⊃2; (350 kcmil).

Final Assembly

Within automobile production, final assembly completes the process. The most important step in final assembly is the moment the drivetrain and engine are bolted to the body. A high degree of precision and control are required to ensure that the right component is always connected to the right part during this process. WAGO controllers, fulfill the high requirements in the area of final assembly and ensure that corresponding areas are in failsafe operation around the clock.

Why use WAGO?

  • Decentralized controllers in an IIoT / Industry 4.0 environment ensure flexible production systems.
  • Connect production control systems to a WAGO pick-to-light control solution.

Automotive Industry Applications and Solutions at a Glance

WAGO products are used in all areas of automotive manufacturing. Our screwless connection technology assures maximum system availability at a conductor level while WAGO's controllers and remote I/Os provide support for energy management and IIoT processes. In all cases, WAGO can be an essential partner for the efficient production in automotive manufacturing both today and into the future.
