Partner for Automation: Festo offers solutions for numerous process steps in battery manufacturing

Copper-free pneumatic and electrical components
Copper-free pneumatic and electrical components Secondary battery manufacturing industry

Many of Festo’s products are inherently free of copper. For example guides are made essentially of polymer. In order to be able to offer customers who manufacture lithium-ion batteries as many components as possible from our product range, we have optimised products specifically for use in this field – and we have replaced parts that contain copper with copper-free elements.

Origins of the LabVolt Series by Festo Didactic

For the last 50 years, Festo Didactic has been recognized worldwide for the development of high-quality, intuitive learning systems for technical education.

Festo Didactic further strengthened its leadership position as a worldwide supplier of technical education solutions through the acquisition of the US-Canadian manufacturer, Lab-Volt Systems, in June 2014. Lab-Volt’s portfolio of products is now part of the global offering of Festo Didactic and is referred to as the “LabVolt Series.”

Decentralised control concepts
Decentralised control concepts

Installation and control concepts are influencing each other more than ever before, especially as we move towards Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT). It is only through effective interaction between these architectures that modular, flexible and adaptable production concepts with decentralised intelligence, pre-processing, autonomous machines or subsystems, cyber-physical systems – in other words, smart factories – will be successful.

White paper: Comparative evaluation of automation concepts for water industry systems Tools for optimising life cycle costs

Energy efficiency and the optimisation of specific production costs are important commercial and business challenges which we must face for a variety of reasons. Energy-efficient technologies are often more expensive than traditional technologies in the investment phase. However, measures to increase efficiency and reduce life cycle costs (LCC) throughout the entire life cycle of a production plant usually pay off.
