Product portfolio

Making Industries Smarter.

The industry of the future is becoming increasingly smarter with our innovative sensor solutions. Split into eleven product categories, our sensors work according to almost 200 different functional principles, thus making the industrial landscape safe and efficient today. With the ever-increasing use of learning robots, our products must be able to make decisions themselves and communicate within the process. They are the sensory organs of automation for Industry 4.0 – and thus the most important components for smart machines.

What We Do to Protect the Environment.

Raise Awareness, Identify Opportunities, Use Potential.
​​​​​​​
When developing our products, we place particular emphasis on technological advantages – including in the way we manufacture them. This is why we reduce the amount of casting resins used, reduce assemblies by combining functions and cut down on the number of individual parts in order to save resources. State-of-the-art nitrogen technology enables quicker and, above all, lower-emission production.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Our sensors feature intelligent shut-off devices and reduced current consumption to help us and our customers reduce energy consumption and save precious resources. We cover around a quarter of our daily energy requirements with renewable energy sources such as geothermal energy or photovoltaics and thus save over 416 tons of CO2 per year at our Tettnang headquarters alone.

Climate Goals Affect Us All.

We will not stop forming car pools, launching bike-to-work competitions and saving both flight costs and a considerable amount of CO2 through web meetings.
​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​But we know that’s far from enough. That’s why we’re going one step further: Since the beginning of 2020, wenglor has been supporting the Swiss start-up CLIMEWORKS, which has developed a pioneering technology. This technology removes carbon dioxide from the ambient air and then converts it into climate-neutral substances such as pure CO2 gas or solid carbon. These substances can either be recycled as a valuable fertilizer for plants or stored in the ground as a solid. wenglor will recover 15 tons of CO2 per year using this method.
