AI and industrial intelligence in production

Use predictive maintenance, quality and energy to identify problems before they happen

Do you want to avoid unplanned downtime, ensure product quality and reduce energy costs? With Festo AX Industrial Intelligence, companies can record real-time production data and analyse it with the help of artificial intelligence (AI). By using artificial intelligence, you can carry out predictive maintenance, ensure product quality (predictive quality) and utilise resources more efficiently (predictive energy). You can reduce downtimes by 25%, cut rejects by 20% and decrease leakages by up to 65%, all thanks to Festo AX.
