Study on parallel kinematic system with CPX/EMCA
Study on parallel kinematic system with CPX/EMCA Robotics without a control cabinet

Robotics is getting ready for Industry 4.0 with the high-speed handling system EXPT with CPX/EMCA. CPX control technology from Festo for an IP65/67 environment and the numerous functions included in the new “integrated drive” EMCA facilitate robotic functionality without a control cabinet that is close to revolutionary. The pioneering combination of standard and cost-effective components is further enhanced by the latest Festo hardware and software. And it offers even more:

An overview of the automation platform CPX

 

 

Single-platform solutions

• Digital and analogue standard tasks

• Demanding I/O tasks with single-channel diagnostics and parameterisation

• Temperature, displacement and pressure measurement

• Electrical and pneumatic safety functions

• Integrated, comprehensive diagnostics and condition monitoring

• Subordinate, decentralised installation system

White paper: Plants based on the Lego principle
White paper: Plants based on the Lego principle Modular automation with valve terminals

Smaller batches and different types of product in the same plant – these are the market demands to which more and more manufacturers in

the process industries need to adjust. The answer is plants based on the “Lego principle”. Users can add modules or switch them off in line

with requirements. But this is only possible with modular automation.

All set for automation with IO-Link
All set for automation with IO-Link Point-to-point!

Standardised IO-Link technology (IEC 61131-9) makes communication with sensors and actuators simple and economical. The result of an evolutionary development, this low-cost connection technology with three or five conductors achieves point-to-point connection without complex wiring and with minimal material requirements.

Automation solutions for fingerboards in the Oil and Gas industry
Automation solutions for fingerboards in the Oil and Gas industry

Very few environments are as demanding as those on an oil rig. Materials are stressed and corrosion is promoted by water, salt and wind, as well as extreme weather fluctuation. The highly innovative Festo Motion Terminal as well as the state of the art valve terminal VTUG combined with our control cabinets offer reliable and steady solutions for automation of fingerboards under these harsh conditions.

The dock “thinks” for itself
The dock “thinks” for itself Decentralised Control in Bulk Material Handling

The world of bulk material handling seems easy at first glance: moving, filling, delivering. The art of dealing with a variety of different materials, however, lies in the details, such as the docking and undocking of containers at weighing stations. In the process, crosscontaminations

and the release of dusts can occur. AZO CleanDock prevents this

problem. Its latest generation can do even more: it “thinks” for itself. Directly attached to the dock, the integrated controller CEC of the modular electrical terminal CPX from Festo ensures additional process security and shortened commissioning times.

Fibre balls in the fight against micropollutants
Fibre balls in the fight against micropollutants Festo is automating the world’s first plant featuring Fuzzy Filters® for removing microplastics and medication

Each year, 8,000 tons of pharmaceutical products and 10 tons of microplastics alone end up in Germany’s largest river, the Rhine. Conventional wastewater treatment plants will always struggle to deal with such large quantities of micropollutants. That is why the town of Barntrup in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia added a purification stage for micropollutants to its wastewater treatment plant – a world first using Fuzzy Filters® from Bosman and automated with pneumatics from Festo.

White paper: Automating on/off process valves
White paper: Automating on/off process valves A comparison of actuation methods for pneumatic actuators

On/off process valves can be automated in different ways using pneumatics. This white paper looks at automation using an individual valve, a valve terminal and a digital valve terminal, and compares the three actuation methods in terms of:

• Required hardware/components and the installation

effort involved

• Investment costs

• Potential for compressed air savings and increased

energy efficiency

• Diagnostic and maintenance options

• Potential for function integration

• Possible applications in safety-related circuits

• Possible applications in potentially explosive areas

Pneumatic automation concepts
Pneumatic automation concepts A comparison of individual valves and valve terminals

Individual valves or valve terminals – which is the most suitable option for actuating pneumatically automated process valves? What are the technological and economic differences between the two? We will use a cost comparison to compare and contrast the two options. And what are the differences in terms of commissioning? Which diagnostic options are available with valve terminals for reducing unscheduled downtime? These are the questions that will be examined in this article.
