Products include DIN-rail mount terminal blocks, chassis-mount terminal blocks, PCB-mount terminal blocks, relays, signal conditioners, power supplies, surge suppressors, and the Wago-I/O-System.
Wago Corp. expanded its North American headquarters. The expansion, which began August 2007, increased the company’s product manufacturing and storage capacity from 60,000 sq. ft. to 75,000 sq. ft., including 36,000 product locations.
“The increased size of our organization validates to our customers that we are committed to them for the long haul; they can always rely upon us to provide the support that they deserve,” says Tom Artmann, Wago president. “This expansion allows us to provide the same strong levels of quality and accuracy. Now, we have the added benefit of delivering thousands of additional items from stock,” he adds.
Wago provides spring pressure connection technology designed to eliminate loose wires as a result of vibration and temperature cycling. The system is said to provide reliable, corrosion-resistant, maintenance-free connections, making terminal blocks and I/O modules easier and faster.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
