Industry 4.0 - Digitalisation in Production
Industry 4.0 - Digitalisation in Production Industry 4.0 - What does Digitalisation mean in Production from a supplier point of view?

Industry 4.0 - Big picture of Digitalisation from a supplier point of view covering the topics of Digital Twin, IoT, Cloud connectivity, Services and Artificial Intelligence Solutions. The poster is split into two parts: Smart Engineering incl. Commissioning and Smart Operation incl. Maintenance. Also showing the approach of Predictive quality, Predictive energy and Predictive maintenance

Pressure and vacuum generator PGVA
Pressure and vacuum generator PGVA

The decentralised pressure and vacuum generator PGVA only requires
a 24 V power supply to provide compressed air for your pressure- or
vacuum-assisted solution. This makes it perfect for your laboratory
processes, for example when handling liquids during dosing, pipetting
medical samples or using a dispense head.

Teaching robot with piezo technology
Teaching robot with piezo technology Case study

To help future dentists and dental assistants deal with children during dental treatments, the Japanese company tmsuk has developed a humanoid robot that realistically simulates the behaviour of young children during these treatments, complete with fidgeting, flinching or closing the mouth. The dummy’s realistic movements are produced using proportional pressure regulators with piezo technology.

Dispense head VTOI
Dispense head VTOI Extremely precise

The dispense head VTOI significantly increases your throughput,

while at the same time reducing the number of valves you need.

Miniature valves VOVK
Miniature valves VOVK Only 5.9 mm wide

Extremely slim and small yet high performing, with a pressure range of up to 7 bar or down to 0.9 bar under vacuum: ideal if you want to operate a large number of switching valves next to each other in a small space. The 3/2-way NC valve with a flow rate of up to 5.8 l/min can also be expanded to a valve terminal with up to 20 positions.

Valve control module VAEM
Valve control module VAEM Precise switching of soenoid valves

The valve control module VAEM makes precise switching of solenoid valves easier than ever. Up to 8 channels can be parameterised individually. A temporary resolution of only 0.2 ms and the control of the valves via current – not voltage – enable extremely high preci­sion, e.g. for dispensing applications. The holding current reduction saves energy and minimises heat input.

VPWS proportional valve
VPWS proportional valve Extremely small: 2/2-way proportional valve

This lightweight cartridge valve is compact at just 15 mm and has a large flow rate of up to 210 l/min at 2 bar. The compact design and high flow rate of the proportional solenoid valve VPWS make it the optimal choice for use in medical technology. It is also suitable for other application areas and industry segments in which gas flows of 5 l/min to 500 l/min at up to 6 bar have to be regulated.

Machine vision with vision sensors, smart camera and checkbox
Machine vision with vision sensors, smart camera and checkbox Your productivity in focus: with industrial image processing from Festo

Machine vision systems from Festo make a decisive contribution to ensuring that the input and output are right. They monitor and stabilise processes, whether they’re reading codes or detecting positions for handling tasks. In some cases they even control the process itself. And they inspect quality from when the goods come in to when they are finished.


That makes your work easier. It makes your machines and systems more productive and flexible. And it further optimises the use of materials.
