Proximity switch SDBT-MSX
Electronic proximity switch for T-slot, can be inserted from above; commissioning without a power supply is quick, easy and very reliable, without the need for precision adjustment or re-adjustment, either via auto teach-in or programming
Automation system CPX-AP-I
With the new I/O system CPX-AP-I in IP65/IP67, powerful I/O modules and existing valve terminal connections can be integrated into the most important host systems, including an IO-Link master.
Media separated solenoid valve VYKA
With a width of just 7 mm (NW 1.2 mm), VYKA controls very small volumes of fluid (µl, ml) with high precision, even aggressive fluids. The holding current reduction of the plug-in E-box VAVE prevents heating of sensitive media.
Media separated solenoid valve VYKB
At just 10 / 12 mm wide (NW 1.6 / 2.0 mm), VYKB controls very small volumes of fluid (µl, ml) with high precision in dispensing and flow control applications. It is also suitable for aggressive media, thanks to a separating diaphragm made from high-performance polymers.
Parallel gripper DHPC
The most compact parallel gripper on the market with impressive gripping force and gripping accuracy available in numerous variants for a wide range of requirements and applications.
Angle gripper DHWC
The economical angle gripper with high repeat accuracy and high torque is particularly suitable for small parts handling and its low dead weight, compact design and long service life are really impressive.
Radial gripper DHRC
The economical radial gripper with high repeat accuracy and high torque is particularly suitable for small parts handling and its low dead weight, compact design and long service life are really impressive.

Festo Automation Experience
Easy-to-use solution that allows you to extract data through artificial intelligence (AI)
Efficient use of blood plasma
Blood plasma is an indispensable resource in the production of life-saving medicines. It is in high demand on global markets. To make more efficient use of this valuable commodity, Biotest AG developed a new large-scale plant for plasma fractionation, with which it is possible to obtain five instead of the previous three products from a litre of blood plasma. Standardised components from Festo simplify installation and maintenance.
Picking, packing, and palletizing
“Our design-to-order concept sets us apart from the majority of packaging machine manufacturers,” says Michael Ruf, deputy general manager of Transnova Ruf. In addition to cutting-edge robotic and control technology, the company is using pneumatic automation technology from Festo, and especially proportional technology on valve manifolds.
Tried and tested solenoid valve technology
The products of the Bayer’s Division Crop Science secure and boost crop yields in more than 120 countries. The new multi-purpose facility built by the company had to meet extremely strict demands on safety and reliability. Inspection cycles had to be significantly reduced, and downtime caused by repairs was to be entirely eliminated in the future. To achieve this, Bayer relied on valve technology from Festo. The facility has now been running smoothly for such a long time that the German Technical Control Board (TÜV) has issued Festo with a certificate for unlimited use of its valves.
