Welcome to the German language Knowledgebase Wiki from Festo. In this Wiki you can find many articles on basic technical principles as well as answers to questions about our product portfolio. These range from pneumatics via electrical drive ...
Electric rotary/lifting module EHMB
Rotary modules can be used for several purposes. They can align or change the orientation of a part; they can also be used to create a compact complete handing unit. The basis for this is a rotary module with a stable bearing, which turns the ...
Electric short-stroke cylinder ADNE-LAS
Many systems require short but dynamic movements between two end positions. For example on a testing machine where components tested as "bad" have to be removed from the continuous manufacturing process. That is why Festo has integrated a linear ...
Safety in pneumatics
At Festo, quality has many aspects – one of these is handling machines safely. This is the reason for our safety-oriented automation technology. These components ensure that optimum safety is achieved in the workplace. Festo has offered products ...

Valves
Pneumatics without valves is like driving cars without motors - possible in theory, but unimaginable in practice.The function of valves is generally limited to controlling the flow direction or the quantity of air. Valves can be subdivided into ...
Linear motors
Today, linear motor technology is considered the most innovative drive technology for handling and automation systems. But how old is this technology? The first patent for a linear motor was registered in 1885 by Dr. Th. Burger in Berlin. The ...
Electric linear motor cylinders DNCE-LAS and DFME-LAS
Festo is the specialist for pneumatics. Therefore it is only logical that Festo has launched linear motor cylinders to the market with the same design as the pneumatic cylinders. However, one restriction must be made clear from the start: no ...
