Der Wörner-Stopper. Das Original.

A pioneering invention

A friend of the Wörner family asked for help in finding a way to damp the recoil of his hunting rifle. While investigating a possible solution, Helmut Wörner realized that he could apply the same damping concept to industrial manufacturing.

In the following years he developed the very first stopper with pneumatic damping. The technology was patented in Germany 1990, creating the basis for a success story that continues to this day.

Today, we make and market the fourth generation of this pneumatically damped stopper: the DBS-20/60.

Made-in-Germany: Wörner innovations that enjoy international popularity

Wörner damping, stopping and positioning modules are available in a variety of standard versions and in customer-specific designs.

Local sales offices and partners ensure close working relationships with the world’s leading manufacturers of automated production systems. As a result, we are able to provide expert advice and to ensure rapid, reliable delivery of our products to wherever they are needed.

Our versatile specialist

Schmid Maschinenbau GmbH needed separating stops that could be lowered electrically, and that were capable of stopping pallets approaching from two directions.

The specialists at Schmid and Wörner put their heads together, and came up with an idea that evolved into the DEL-350-S2. It took just eight exciting weeks of creative collaboration for the concept to a finished product. Since then, the stopper has become an integral part of our product portfolio, and is now frequently deployed in Schmid transfer systems.

The development and manufacture of innovative custom solutions

The Wörner DEL-350-S2 two-sided stopper with integrated sensors and anti-bounce stops is highly versatile: Pallets can approach and exit from and in two different directions and are precisely positioned. We welcome the chance to put our skills to the test with this and similar tasks: We are your partner for the design and manufacture of tailor-made stopper solutions for automated production. With our experience and expertise, we can advise you every step of the way – before, during and after your project.

A stopper that just never stops

Together with Zhu Jun, the manager of our sales office in China, we are paying a visit to MCi Mirror Controls Co., Ltd., a customer of many years’ standing. As we take a tour of the manufacturing facility, Mr. Zhu draws our attention to a number of Wörner stoppers that have been in operation at MCi for more than ten years. We ask the technical manager, how easy it is to obtain spare parts. His face betrays his surprise at the question. His response: “Spare parts? We have never needed any.”

It is a situation we often encounter: Because quality and quality assurance are the bedrock of our lasting success.

Customers who choose Wörner components are consciously choosing reliable, low-maintenance and highly durable products. Products that offer dependable operation and precision. And it is a choice that makes sound business sense.

Our manufacturing processes are certified to ISO 9001 and environmental protection standard ISO 14001. Each and every part is made in Germany and tested prior to shipment.

We remain totally committed to these principles.

The next generation

How can Wörner products enable you to conserve resources, save money, reduce installation effort, and increase energy efficiency?

The experts in our development department found a way to do all this: By means of electromechanical drives – as an attractive alternative to pneumatic systems. These electrically powered stoppers require no pneumatics. And they are based on the plug-and-play principle: Attach the stopper, connect the cable, and you are good to go!

It conserves resources, and significantly lowers the effort and expense of installation.

Innovation in action

Electrically powered stoppers offer tangible business benefits: They are easy to install and far more energy efficient than their pneumatic counterparts. They guarantee lower electricity consumption – and lower carbon emissions. And that means lower operating costs: In fact, they are just one tenth of the expenses of running a pneumatic stopper.

Wörner components on production lines: ideal for ensuring efficient stop-and-go

Wörner components perform key tasks within automated production systems:

  • They accumulate pallets and clear them individually for downstream transportation.
  • They stop the pallets at assembly stations and position them precisely for subsequent processing.
  • Once processed, the pallets are cleared for transportation to the next station.

The choice of Wörner components depends on the speed, shape, weight and robustness of the workpiece and the type of production process.

Possibilities include pneumatically or electrically driven, damped or undamped separating stops, index cylinders and anti-bounce stops for a variety of weight classes.

An example of Wörner-stoppers in use: Pallets are stopped at a defined position and accumulated
A damped stopper gently slows down the oncoming pallet and ensures the required position for the next step in the process.
