Wire Processing Center (WPC) 

Increase the efficiency of your manufacturing process by up to 80%

According to the study “Panel building 4.0“ by the Institute for Control Engineering of Machine Tools and Manufacturing Units of the University of Stuttgart in classic panel building, 72 % of the working time in the installation phase is required for wiring and mechanical assembly.

The Weidmüller Wire Processing Center (WPC) addresses exactly these issues. Software-controlled, semi-automated cable assembly considerably accelerates production processes and at the same time ensures the highest quality standards. Increase the efficiency of your production process by up to 80%.

Your benefits at a glance

Time savings
The use of automatic machines decreases processing times and thus contributes to a general increase in manufacturing process efficiency .

High flexibility
In the system approach, individual components of the WPC can be removed from the process sequence or they can be used in their individual functions in stand-alone mode

Outstanding quality
Consistently high quality through the use of semi-automated machines.

Weidmüller receives the cabinet building innovation award

A jury of experts awards the Weidmüller Wire Processing Center (WPC) .

Together with Zoller & Fröhlich, Weidmüller received an award for its Wire Processing Center (WPC) that is used for semi-automated cable assembly and marking. The most time-consuming activities in cabinet building are still cable assembly, wiring and marking. The Weidmüller Wire Processing Center (WPC) offers an ideal solution for the semi-automation and increases efficiency in cable assembly by up to 80 %. The WPC consists of an automatic cutting machine, an automatic stripping and crimping machine and a thermal transfer printer.


Easy. Flexible. Efficient.

Intelligent user guidance and simple operation 

The various components have a modular set up and communicate with each through the implemented interfaces via the WPC software. The included planning software WPC tool ensures optimal data consistency. In this way CAE data from the planning phase can be easily transferred to the WPC and used for cable assembly. Visualised on the touch screen the software controlled processing of individual wire orders significantly improves process reliability.

Customize and save 

The WPC is characterized by its flexibility. In the system approach individual components can be removed from the process sequence e.g. for subsequent marking, or they can be used in their individual functions in stand alone mode. Even short term changes, which frequently occur in the project business, van be easily integrated. Thanks to intuitive operation and accelerated processing additional production capacity can be made available, thus increasing overall output.

Planning software WPC tool 

With the planning software WPC tool, data can be read and edited in various ways (manual, CSV files, Eplan and E3 files). Transmission to the Wire Processing Center is via the network or a USB stick.

High flexibility with consistently high quality 

The WPC combines proven components into a modular assembly system consisting of cable processing machines and industrial printers. It provides you with utmost flexibility, reliability and an efficiency increase of up to 80%.

    The fluorescent tube goes out!
    The most striking measure is the phasing out of obsolete fluorescent lamps, such as T2, T8 and T12 (popularly known as TL tubes). Also notable is the phasing out of halogen lamps and compact fluorescent lamps (popularly known as low-energy lamps). These lighting sources must be replaced because they are not energy-efficient and because there are sufficient energy-efficient alternatives on the market. With this measure, the commission aims to save almost 42 TWh in 2030.

    That sounds safe
    The PSENmlock door handle module gives you a handle with an integrated actuator and an integrated escape release – perfect for the safety gate system PSENmlock. The yellow handle (outside) enables extension of the actuator to open or close the gate. The escape release is operated with the red handle (inside). The PSENmlock door handle module is suitable for fitting on the inside and the outside of the gate as well as for right-hinged and left-hinged gates. It has a locking insert for up to five locks to prevent the machine from restarting and can be used with the coded and fully coded PSENmlock switches.

    You'd rather know in advance
    Components of an automation system are normally used for a very long time during their life cycle. It is therefore questionable whether the component is still available in the event of failure. It is therefore important to manage the life cycle proactively. Timely information about the availability of spare parts, for example, is one of the most important planning criteria here.

    Grip on your production process
    Although the provisioning of care homes is often well organised, on the flip side there is sometimes still room for improvement, especially where hygiene processes are concerned. With that in mind, Jop van Haaren, director and owner of Less2Care from Raalte, set out to work ten years ago. The result? The VacuSan: an automated solution for the safe vacuum sealing and disposal of used incontinence materials. The electronic parts of the operating system are delivered as a kit – a customer-specific package – by itsme. “As a customer you don’t need to worry about it anymore.”
