Cone bushings

Our WEGMANN automotive cone bushings are the market leading products worldwide. Most OEMs trust in WEGMANN automotive and rely on our product design and quality for SLI batteries. We offer a large range of cone bushings that will also meet your needs. In our automotive SLI portfolio you will also find a selection of bushings that are especially designed for truck batteries. These types are available as cone bushings as well as short bushings without cone.

Our product portfolio is based on deep market knowledge and close partnerships with our customers to develop the best product for your needs. If required, our qualified development team is ready to proactively advise our customers in the preliminary stages of product development and accompany them in obtaining a tailor-made solution.

For an optimal connection between the battery bushing and the polypropylene of the battery lid we developed the advanced undercut labyrinth. This unique feature prevents acid migration through the labyrinth and helps to make the battery leakageproof. In order to provide a shiny appearance and an improved surface finish, our battery terminals are surface treated over the entire cone area.
