Festo’s technological competence sustainably secures innovative capacity and technological leadership in existing and new fields of activity. Advanced technologies provide the required basic knowledge in the traditional disciplines of engineering and in new areas such as micro-nano integration.
Intelligent components pave the way for integrated systems in automation technology
Enhanced functionality and performance despite simplified installation call for more complex components, which are developing into integrated systems to an increasing extent.
Festo is promoting this holistic system approach by ensuring that functional integration and the reduction of external interfaces are integrated into intelligent system solutions. The mechatronic approach pursued by Festo at the same time consistently enables energy-efficient systems.
Essential core technologies, such as microsystems technology, are providing the basis for future product and manufacturing concepts, for example in the fields of decentralised energy supply, wireless communication, and modular, flexible, self-organising manufacturing systems.
The additionally required technological competencies are supplemented by open innovation collaborations.
