Industrial Machinery and Automation

 Industrial instruments for machine building and smart factories

At the heart of industrial machinery are instruments that measure, regulate, and monitor pressure, temperature, force, fluid levels, and flow rates. For interconnected systems in today’s smart factories, reliable sensors and transmitters are crucial for managing and controlling the various components, and to do so safely and reliably. WIKA has decades of experience in the industrial machinery and automation markets. Our experts have worked closely with numerous companies in this sector, and such relationships have given us a deep understanding of machine building and its specific challenges.

Industrial Machinery and Automation

Industrial machines comprise the precision heavy equipment found in manufacturing facilities today. These machines include:

  • Fluid-power systems and componentshydraulic power units, valves, manifolds, cylinders, motors, reservoirs, filters, cooling systems
  • Pumps and compressors — blowers, reciprocating compressors, screw compressors, air dryers, dehydrators, vacuum pumps, fracking pumps, mud pumps, pump skids
  • Machine tools — milling machines, grinding machines, lathes, presses, drilling machines, cutting machines, welding machines
  • Plastics machinery and components — plastic injection molding machines, extruders, mold tools, hot runners, temperature control units, granulators, filters, dryers
  • Test equipment and machines — test benches, engine test stands, test cells, dynamometers, environmental chambers, leak test machines, tensile strength machines, field test kits
  • Stationary cranes and lifting equipment — overhead cranes, straddle carriers, tower cranes, container cranes, harbor cranes, offshore cranes, conveyer systems
  • Specialized machinerywaterjet cutting machines, woodworking machines, textile machines, packaging machines, paper machines, food processing machines, tire manufacturing machines

With the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), robotics and automated systems operate and oversee many of these industrial machines. By minimizing or removing human intervention, factories become safer and more efficient, while the finished products are more uniformly of a high quality.
