Benchmarks for drive technology

Festo places great importance on outstanding production quality: Every drive is subjected to a comprehensive test program with function, leakage and endurance tests. These provide statistics confirming service life characteristics for the best possible operational safety. The record-breakers were cylinders with a running performance of 82,000 km, meaning they could have travelled almost twice around the globe.
