Electric drive technology

Positioning systems with electrical drives and harmonised motor controller packages

Electro-mechanical drives

Electric axes: electric cylinder EPCO

Festo provides various linear axes for dynamic response and speed, precision and powerful movement.

Toothed belt drives, spindle drives with recirculating ball bearing guide and innovative ball chains provide the appropriate technology for each requirement.

There are many possibilities for cantilever axis functions with special cantilever axes and slides or handling units.
