Who says pneumatics doesn’t have anything new to

offer? Festo proves the critics wrong yet again, and

shows why pneumatics is the backbone of automa-

tion technology.

What use is an online shop if it takes forever to place

an order? This was the question troubling Armin K.

and his team. The result: the new Festo Online Shop.

“With us, you can order faster than your own

shadow,” he grins.

A new dimension in process reliability thanks to VUVG and DSBC

Experience the new, rapid ordering system in the Festo Online Shop


– They go by the names

DSBC and VUVG. Behind these unsus-

pecting names lies great potential. As

anyone who is involved in automation

technology can see, these products

signal the start of a new era for stand-

ard cylinders and valves. “Switching to

the new cylinders DSBC has improved

our process reliability,” says Hermann

Nelke of NSM Magnettechnik, who

now uses the new Festo cylinder in

his plant. The secret to this is the

self-adjusting end-position cushioning

PPS. They use over 500 of these cylin-

ders, reducing previous commissioning

and maintenance times by 70%.

Together with the individual valve

VUVG, which simplifies design and

installation and also increases system

output by 40% thanks to shorter actu-

ating times, the cylinders have made

the whole plant far more productive.

These figures prove that the field of

pneumatics still has plenty to offer.

Happiness is just four clicks away


– Not all online shops are

the same. No-one knows this better

than Armin K., Festo Project Manager

the challenges: “Anyone who has tried

K. continues. “Give it a go!”

PPS – ingenious idea causes a stir

A cylinder that adjusts itself changes

the world of automation systems.

With the new PPS self-adjusting

cushioning, you can say goodbye to

possible thanks to an ingeniously

simple idea in the piston design.
