Electric automation

One integrated platform for all your automation needs

One platform for electric automation means seamless connectivity. From electromechanical systems, servo motors and servo drives to complete positioning systems, motion control solutions as well as entire handling systems and decentralised control solutions – always with the right software and interface.

Stay flexible at all times. Because you decide how much you automate with Festo, and which of our products you use together with your in-house standards. This allows you to gradually adapt your system while staying within budget.


Mechanical connectivity

The wide range of mechanical linear axes and rotary modules offers you almost infinite variety for automating motion – compatible with your in-house standard and of course with our servo motors.


Electric connectivity

Our range of servo motors and servo drives is the ideal link between your mechanical system and your control technology, always optimally coordinated and easily configured with our engineering software.


Intelligent connectivity

The decentralised control of individual process modules, the free and flexible communication with other control devices and the integrated motion control solutions from Festo enable a wide variety of solutions for industrial automation tasks. Supported by innovative software solutions for engineering and configuration.
