Digitisation is penetrating the whole automation pyramid including process automation. On two stands and a joint stand with the ZVEI, Festo presented the possibilities of digitised process industry at ACHEMA in Frankfurt from 11 to 15 June.
‘From field level through to cloud services’ was our motto at ACHEMA. We presented brand-new products and clever solutions surrounding the automation of process valves. Festo also showed how intelligent components and systems communicate with each other and how the Internet of Things (IoT) can make these even more transparent. A particular highlight of ACHEMA was the world premiere of the BionicFinWave – with the underwater robot, Festo is once again creating impetus for the future work with autonomous robots and new drive technologies used in liquid media.
But see the highlights of ACHEMA 2018 for yourself:
‘Once again, this year we conducted many interesting conversations with customers and international experts and were able to amaze our visitors with our innovations,’ says Dr Eckhard Roos, Head of Global Key Account and Industry Segment Management Process Industries, describing his impression of ACHEMA.
