Gentle and careful lifting of substrates

Lifting system

The challenge: high weight, maximum speed and even movement

Lifting systems from Festo combine the advantages of electrical and pneumatic axes:

The electric axis DGE with toothed belt drive controls the movement. The pneumatic axis DGP corrects the weight - faster than conventional counter-balancers with spindle axes.


The glass is transported both quickly and gently.
