Mechanical Engineering

WAGO optimizes reliability in the Mechanical Engineering industry by automating processes, minimizing energy consumption, saving cabinet space and enabling the seamless acquisition and analysis of data. For original equipment manufacturers, this designed-in agility directly relates to our portfolio of flexible, efficient, revenue-enhancing interconnect, interface and automation solutions.

Product Highlights


The Control Cabinet: Planning to Commissioning

Ordering and production processes are becoming increasingly digital. Consistency and data transparency along the entire value-added chain saves time and lowers costs. To support this integration, WAGO offers smart DATA Engineering: digital solutions that range from planning and design to engineering, testing, and commissioning.

Why use WAGO?

  • Data is directly imported into the smartDESIGNER online product configurator.
  • The WAGO smartDESIGNER product configurator enables true 3D configuration/visualization while also providing error-checking and validation.
  • Ordering pre-configured products online minimizes end customer storage and assembly requirements while reducing processing time.

WAGO Technology for Mechanical Engineering

Greater precision, higher speeds, more flexibility- demands in mechanical engineering are always increasing. At the same time, customization of machines and systems increases the capabilities of manufacturing processes. In this environment, the right tools are essential. WAGO Touch Panels help our customers realize the full potential of their projects.

Why use WAGO?

  • Designed for flexible programming in IEC 61131 or directly within the Linux open source operating system.
  • High performance Cortex A9 Multicore processor assures fast operating speeds.
  • Three product families for different operating requirements Standard Line, Advanced Line and Marine Line.

Data Acquisition

IIoT and big data are opening up unexpected possibilities for new business models in the industrial sector. WAGO's automation solutions can reliably transfer data from the field for use and analysis in the Cloud. Various fieldbus interfaces can be utilized independently thereby offering further flexibility.

Why use WAGO?

  • Send data via MQTT to a variety of cloud systems including Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, IBM Cloud or SAP Cloud.
  • Data encryption happens in the WAGO controller and is transmitted via iPsec or OpenVPN.
  • Controllers come with standard, integrated firewall and preconfigured rules.

Customer Applications

Faster Modular Device Adaptation

The PROFINET IO Fieldbus Coupler from WAGO can save you a lot of time when engineering and configuring your devices. The function of variable peripheral configuration, an innovative version of option handling, makes it possible to use software created once to realize different versions of a device easier. Customized products, shorter product cycles, greater product diversity – they all demand greater manufacturing flexibility at lower costs.

Pioneers Plan in Record Time

Those must have been exciting days, back when the first X-ray inspection systems came on the market. “At the time, we hardly knew what ppm meant,” R&D manager Martin Sokolowski says with a wink. Today, the engineers at Nordson MatriX focus on improving resolution and maximizing speed, while simultaneously creating their machines in record time – even though no two are identical. WAGO’s automation modules have always supported a high degree of customization, with the e!COCKPIT Engineering Software being the most recent contributor.


Wiring Electrical Systems

Drilling holes precisely and at high speed - this is the essential requirement the CNC drilling machines from Schmoll Maschinen GmbH have to meet. The machines produced by this mid-sized company are used globally in electronics manufacturing. Numerous electronic devices, from smartphones to flat screen TVs, contain PCBs that were manfactured using this equipment. When wiring the electrical systems, Schmoll relies on TOPJOBS Rail-Mount Terminal Blocks with push-in spring pressure connection technology from WAGO.
