Modular Production System – Combining Stations Modular Production System – Combining Stations

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

Manufacturing Pick&Place Stations Manufacturing Pick&Place 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.

Directly Actuated Solenoid Valve VZWD Directly Actuated Solenoid Valve VZWD

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.

Servo-Controlled Solenoid Valve VZWP Servo-Controlled Solenoid Valve VZWP

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

Force Pilot Operated Solenoid Valve VZWF Force Pilot Operated Solenoid Valve VZWF

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

Solenoid Diaphragm Valves Solenoid Diaphragm Valves

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

Compressed Air Preparation Compressed Air Preparation

The right compressed air preparation system significantly increases the long service life of Festo components and systems – as well as the process and product reliability.

CPX Series I/O and Fieldbus Terminals CPX Series I/O and Fieldbus Terminals

CPX – the ideal platform for electrical peripherals. Perfect as a valve terminal partner or as remote I/O: electrical, open and direct.

Automation Concepts in Pharmaceutical Production Automation Concepts in Pharmaceutical Production

Festo provides special services to ensure reliable automation in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry. Many drug manufacturers and their suppliers are already satisfied customers who value this expertise.

    4 Dynamics Driving Outsourcing Decision‐Making For Lab Automation OEMs

    Lab automation equipment makers should keep outsourcing strategies flexible as "make‐versus‐buy" decision drivers change. This article offers four factors to help in outsourcing decision making.

  • Proportional Valves For Closed-Loop Control Of Inert Gases In Process Automation
    Proportional Valves For Closed-Loop Control Of Inert Gases In Process Automation

    In many process automation applications, the pressure and flow of gases are controlled.  Explosion protection requirements mean that an inert atmosphere is often created and maintained in reactors and process tanks in a plant.  This is usually done with nitrogen and in some cases also with argon.  Other applications include the transfer of materials between process tanks and filling, using inert gas, air, sterile air and carbon dioxide.

  • The Right Way To Buy Valves And Valve Terminals
    The Right Way To Buy Valves And Valve Terminals

    The global market for valves and valve terminals today is so large that it is almost impossible to maintain an overview. Often, price seems the only buying criterion. But it pays to look more closely, particularly with regard to higher productivity and process reliability.

  • Energy Efficient Automation Systems For Increased Revenues And Sustainability

    Sustainable energy efficiency in automation requires a sophisticated concept which covers a total of four areas: intelligent dimensioning, energy-efficient products and solutions, services,  and training and consulting. Each of these four areas contributes to an increase in energy efficiency – regardless of where the road begins. For optimum energy efficiency which meets the current standards or, looking forward, even surpasses them, it is recommended to use all four areas in combination.
