Production systems of the future – a holistic perspective
Festo press photo OPC SupraMotion 2.0 Superconductors have fascinating properties: when cooled to a certain temperature, they can “freeze” the field of a nearby permanent magnet and can thus hold the magnet in position at a constant distance. The resulting stable air gap allows the contact-free, frictionless positioning and moving of objects without the need for control technology. (Photo: Festo)
Production systems of the future – a holistic perspective
Festo press photo OPC BionicKangaroo With its artificial BionicKangaroo, Festo is intelligently combining pneumatic and electrical drive technology into a highly dynamic system. Stability during jumping and landing is ensured by the sturdy jump kinematics in combination with precise control and regulation engineering. The consistent lightweight design facilitates this unique jumping behaviour. (Photo: Festo)

Festo press photo OPC eMotionSpheres eMotionSpheres – flying objects with bionic drive. Each of the eight helium-filled spheres is driven by eight small propellers attached to the outer shell. The drive units are adaptive and provide the same efficient thrust in both a forward and reverse direction; this is an entirely new feature for flying objects.
