Industrial Vehicles and Machines

Industrial vehicles go by several names: mobile working machines (MWM), mobile hydraulics, off-road vehicles, heavy-duty vehicles, and off-highway equipment. What they have in common is that they are found in harsh working conditions, subject to dust, precipitation, vibration, shock, and extreme temperatures. Safe and efficient operations call for accurate measuring instruments that are as tough as the industrial vehicles themselves.

Examples of Industrial Vehicles

Industrial vehicles and machines are found in many sectors:

  • Construction: loaders, excavators, dozers, dump trucks, motor graders, skid steers, pipe layers, compactors, pavers
  • Agriculture: tractors, harvesters, planters, combines, sprayers
  • Forestry: harvesters, forwarders, loaders, skidders, feller bunchers
  • Material handling: forklifts, telehandlers, scissor lifts, boom lifts, mobile cranes, crawler cranes
  • Mining: drilling machines, haul trucks, excavators, power shovels, draglines
  • Municipal: street sweepers, garbage trucks, fire trucks, utility trucks
  • Military: armored personnel carriers, utility vehicles

High Performance, High Customization, High Safety Standards

Operators of industrial vehicles expect reliability, fuel efficiency, low emissions, and safety. That’s why WIKA designs and manufactures a wide range of gauges, sensors, switches, transducers, transmitters, and accessories specifically optimized for off-road vehicles.

Our instruments fulfill client requirements for:

  • Measuring ranges
  • Accuracies
  • Operating temperatures
  • Overpressure safety
  • Industry certifications
  • Digital connectivity
  • Hydrogen applications

WIKA is serious about performance and safety. To that end, we routinely perform dozens of mechanical, environmental, and electrical tests on our products to make sure they meet or exceed expectations.

In addition to our comprehensive portfolio of measurement solutions, our engineers work closely with manufacturers to come up with design specifications and modifications that fit their particular requirements. Customized measuring solutions is a big reason why so many of the world’s largest OEMs have made WIKA part of their business.

Resistance to Shock, Vibration, and Temperature Fluctuations

Industrial machines are exposed to shock and vibration, heat and cold, dirt and mud, fresh and salt water, electromagnetic waves, and more. Our measuring instruments are designed to perform under these and other adverse conditions, with features such as:

  • Excellent ingress protections
  • Electromagnetic compatibilities
  • Explosion protection
  • Resistance to shock, vibration, and temperature variations

Reliable Measuring Instruments for Minimal Downtime

Downtime is expensive. WIKA’s dedication to robust designs, quality materials, user friendliness, and state-of-the art production processes ensure that OEM customers benefit from accurate, reliable instrumentation at competitive price points. All our products feature long-term stability, and some come with special features to help operators diagnose and resolve problems.

Our services don’t end after the sale is complete. With decades of industry expertise, our engineers and specialists are available for troubleshooting and brainstorming solutions. Our specialists also provide personalized assistance with calibration, maintenance, and repairs.

WIKA offers exceptional instruments for measuring and monitoring pressure, temperature, force, and level in off-road  vehicles. For more information, click on the Products tab or contact our specialists in industrial machines.
