There’s a robot for every job
Robots come in more shapes, sizes and configurations than you may think. Here are some handy rules of thumb about each type that can help you pinpoint the right one for your application and budget.
Stop wasting energy
Leakage in compressed air systems is an often un-recognized and increasingly avoidable expense. New Festo energy efficiency modules are a game-changer – saving on energy, and reducing downtime.
Designing a safe machine begins with a risk evaluation and adopting a risk reduction approach based on Performance Level/SIL criteria. This article takes a closer look at safety valves and the value of Performance Level E.
La simplicité est à présent possible
Festo simplifie l'automatisation électrique, de la conception à la mise en service, grâce au guide de manipulation en ligne et à des produits tels que la série Simplified Motion.
L’automatisation – Le défis des PME
Si les grandes usines embrassent déjà l’automatisation pour la production pour se placer à l’avant-garde, les PME pourraient bien se laisser séduire par les nouvelles tendances et innovations.
A neat twist on automation
In food and beverage production, automation can do fancy as well as basic. And in the making of German pretzels, Festo-based pneumatics can do more pretzel forming than this bakery was doing by hand.
Getting a grip
Recent innovations like soft and adaptive grippers underscore how the expanding choice in gripping solutions are making automation better in a wide range of industries.
High IQ conveyors
Smart conveyors are redefining industrial goods conveyance. Belts are giving way to movers travelling over linear motor segments, with greater flexibility in how transit systems can be configured.
Canada’s productivity conundrum
The growth of Canada’s manufacturing sector depends on utilizing more automation and robotics, but many companies still find such investments unappealing, according to a new study.
Doing it right (sized)
Swapping out a top-mounted robot for a Festo gantry right-sized the tray-loading cell in a yoghurt packaging/palletizing machine, enabling machine builder Nuspark to achieve significant cost savings.
Farming goes digital
These days, Canadian dairy farms may look more like I Robot than Old Macdonald, as robotic milking and feeding systems make them more productive and ease the human burden on farm families.
Fast food for thought
Every wonder how slicing of meat patties for fast food sandwiches is automated? The search for such a system stymied one supplier. It took a custom solution with Festo components to meet his need.
Better design tools = less stress
Festo’s continually expanding lineup of online and downloadable design tools are reducing the stress, error risk and time in getting new automation projects up and running and new products to market.
The future of pneumatics is digital
The Festo Motion Terminal is revolutionary change, putting all control functions into software apps, dispensing with up to 50 related components and making fast process and format changes possible.
Industry 4.0’s promise: Size doesn’t matter
One of the intriguing possibilities of Industry 4.0? Unlike earlier automation that rewarded large economies of scale, it is agnostic about a company’s size, offering benefits to even smaller
Cyber-physical labs advance Industry 4.0
Connected classrooms: In today’s digital economy we requires a new approach to technical job training. The key is to start small, and now.
