WaveHandling –
Transporting and sorting in one

The pneumatic conveyor belt can transport objects in a targeted manner and sort them at the same time. It consists of numerous bellows modules that deform the surface creating a wave motion that transports the objects in a targeted manner.

Modular conveyor belt: immediately operational in any layout

The individual modules can be connected as required and are self-configuring. This means that the system can be started up quickly and without programming, no matter what the layout is. The integrated sorting function means that an additional handling unit is no longer absolutely necessary.

 

Decentralised intelligence: new ideas for the factory of tomorrow

With the WaveHandling system, Festo is already demonstrating how configuration of a system will be handled by the individual modules themselves in the future.
