High-speed tool changes, loading and unloading in next to no time, complex machining in just one cycle – you’ve probably heard this wish list from users many times before. The tailor-made automation solutions from Festo will help you to tick all the boxes, for instance with handling systems that make loading and unloading into a single task. Find out here how we work with you to develop the optimum machine concept, including rapid prototyping and FEM.
Products for applications in the machine tool industry
The benefits to you of suitable compressed air preparation:
With integrated monitoring functions, you will always know the status of the compressed air filters, which will enable you to plan needs-based maintenance.
One specific advantage is that, thanks to the high flow rates and compact dimensions of our service units, you can select one that is one size smaller than normal.
It can be configured for all common applications in line with ISO 8573-1:2010 such as for class (7:4:4) as well as for demanding applications that require extremely pure compressed air, e.g. class (1:4:1) for optical displacement encoders or class (1:2:1) for laser cutting systems.
Our products will make sure the air is right:
Customised products for different environments:
Our new generation of axes will inspire innovative ideas:
You can combine electric and pneumatic products to get the most efficient and cost-effective solution for your loading and unloading tasks. Using our modules, you can design a complete handling system easily and cost-effectively. This will save you development time, which will benefit your core business. Make the most of different technologies (toothed belt, spindle or rack and pinion axis) and various stroke lengths (up to 10 metres for the horizontal axis and 2.5 metres for the vertical axis). By using the best materials for belts or seals, you will get a sturdy and reliable system that is optimally suited for the ambient conditions of your application.
Media valves and automation technology from a single source
You can combine both of these procurement processes and use just one interface for ordering as well as for invoicing and logistics processes. We will find the optimum solution for your requirements in terms of valve technology, the switching frequency required, the pressure range or sealing material.
A large product portfolio, from simple servo-lite technologies to brushless technologies with extended integrated safety functions for safety doors
The specially developed control block PPK significantly improves the dynamics for doors, hatches and flaps. The opening and closing times are typically halved compared to conventional control systems.
Features and benefits:
Reduce the size of your electric drive system by transforming vertical movements into horizontal movements and thus compensate for the weight of the load being moved.
Increase your process reliability with our SOPA sensors.
Every time raw material is clamped in the machine, dirt or splinters could prevent it from being correctly positioned or aligned. Our SOPA sensors will prevent these sources of errors.
Moving, rotating or gripping: with our handling technology, you will expand your storage system and will always have the right tool at your fingertips.
