Festo is developing energy-efficient products and solutions in joint projects with research institutions and partner companies
ESIMA: Optimised resource efficiency in production through Energy-autonomous Sensors and Interaction with Mobile Users
A joint project in the field of "Energy-autonomous mobility - Reliable energy-autonomous systems for mobile people" of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)
Hardware and software modules to simplify the interaction between humans and machines in order to create complete transparency at any time about machine status and the use of resources. That makes it easier to optimise production plants.
EMC2: Eco Manufactured Transportation Means from Clean and Competitive Factory
A research project of the European Community, funded through the Seventh Framework Programme
Optimising production processes in the automotive industry with software tools for selecting suitable drive technologies and efficiency-enhancing pneumatic and electric drive controls.
The Green Carbody project: planning the efficient use of compressed air in the body shop
A research project into "Research for the production of tomorrow" of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)
Reducing the energy requirements of pneumatic drive technology in the body shop by improving coordination between energy generators and consumers.
EnEffAH Energy efficiency in production in the drive and handling technology field
A joint project as part of the German government's energy research programme
The energy efficiency of handling units and robotics is determined by the right mix of pneumatic and electrical technologies, which depends on the requirements of the application. Technologies for energy storage and recovery also promise great potential.
