HOT PRODUCTS

Thanks to the optical measurement methods, the SOE... series sensors cover a wide range of tasks. From color detection to detection of smallest parts, right up to a laser distance sensor. Of course it is perfectly tailored for the products and services of Festo.

Pressure sensors and vacuum switches for controlling all pressure values: programmable and as a modular product.

By monitoring the flow, a simplified diagnostic and condition monitoring process can be implemented: A change in the flow rate is often an indication that problems are likely to occur. The quality of end products can also be monitored.

Actuating components, such as cylinders, electric linear actuators and axes, as well as their attachments and accessories. Pneumatic actuators are intended to convert pressure energy into motion energy; this process involves the transmission and transfer of forces.

Pressure sensors and vacuum switches for controlling all pressure values: programmable and as a modular product.

As a powerful and dynamic AC synchronous servo motor with robust connection technology, the EMMS-AS is ideally suited to highly demanding applications

The servo motor EMMT-AS for demanding and dynamic applications is characterized by very good controllability and path accuracy for positioning tasks and the space-saving single-cable solution significantly reduces installation effort.

Reliable and powerful AC synchronous servo motor with optimized connection technology for dynamic applications.

Designed as an EtherCAT master controller and motion controller with protection to IP20, the powerful automation system CPX-E for factory and process automation with NE21-specific certifications is becoming the central control system for handling technology. Several bus modules are available for the configuration as a compact and low-cost remote I/O.

The uncomplicated way to start with industrial vision systems: the vision sensor SBSI allows users to implement simple camera applications quickly and inexpensively – even without expert knowledge. Whether you want to read codes or carry out simple quality inspections, the SBSI can be commissioned in just 3 steps.

The valve and valve terminals with their robust design combines features required for operation in harsh environments such as impact resistance, mounting options and ease of handling.

The compact valve manifold for low-cost, general use.

Modular: easy expansion in individual steps – perfect for special machine building.

Very easy to clean, highly corrosion resistant, outstandingly sturdy and extremely functional.

Overview of the available valve terminal series with the most important technical features and recommendations for their range of applications.

Sturdy and with high flow rates – the new standard valve for your everyday tasks.

Control solutions for simple to medium complexity electrical and/or pneumatic systems.

Further training, with the objective of supporting people in companies to deal with current as well as future problems and provide them with new answers – that is the purpose of FestoDidactic.

The MPS® transfer system has been developed for everyone who wants to make headway with training, be it for the electrical or metal trades or for training technicians and engineers in mechatronics.

A new interface concept that offers many possibilities for direct combination of individual stations.

The Pick&Place station is equipped with a two-axis Pick&Place module. Workpiece housings placed on the conveyor are detected by an optical diffuse sensor. The workpiece is transported to the pneumatic separator on the conveyor and detected by a second diffuse sensor. The Pick&Place module picks up a workpiece insert from the slide and places it on the workpiece housing. The complete workpiece (housing and insert) is released by the separator and transported to the end of the conveyor. A light barrier detects the workpiece at the end of the conveyor.

Pharmaceutical flow monitoring and sensors provide simpler diagnostic and condition monitoring processes: A change in the flow rates is often an indicator that problems are likely to occur.

Efficient and reliable pressure and vacuum monitoring and control combined with flow monitoring are of the utmost importance when pneumatic systems are used for automation.

The challenge in pharmaceutical production is to devise highly flexible production plants that can be rapidly adapted to different products and capacities.

Operating convenience: three presets for optimum adaptation to different volumes

At Festo, low-cost standard pneumatics take the place of complicated special designs, because nearly all our standard series products comply with the defined quality standards and are suitable for use in ISO 14644-1 Class 7 clean rooms.

The tissue factory at the Fraunhofer Institute is a worldwide unique system for the fully automatic in-vitro production of human skin models.

Reliably monitors fast motion sequences. Supports diagnostics and commissioning. High frame rate: 240 - 2,100 pictures per second and several cameras can be networked via Ethernet/IP and synchronised.

Suitable for small parts assembly and for electronics, as well as for the food and packaging industry. It is available as an electrically or pneumatically actuated valve and can be expanded to form a valve terminal with an individual connection.

The MS6-SV and MS9-SV pharmaceutical pneumatic safety valves feature compact size, soft start functionality, and an advantageous price versus performance ratio.

Ideal for high pressures with low flow rates, the VZWD diaphragm valve operates without differential pressure at up to 90 bar, even in closed media circuits.

The VZWP solenoid valves have the capability to control high pressures at large nominal sizes, thanks to sealing pistons instead of a diaphragm.

The force pilot operated valves from the VZWF series can be operated without differential pressure, e.g. can be used in closed media circuits.

Festo provides complete process automation solutions with a range of automated process valves, diaphragm valves, sensors and positioners.
