Festo opened the company’s Technology Engineering Center (TEC), just north of Boston. The TEC is the company’s first engineering center in the United States devoted to the life sciences.
The choice of the United States for this engineering center was based on this country’s leadership in the global life sciences industry. Locating the researchers and developers in greater Boston was due to the proximity of the area’s research institutions such as MIT, Harvard, and Brown, the confluence of laboratory equipment manufacturers, and the pool of qualified technologists. It is here that most of the innovations and new technologies are created.
What we do?
In the research and development center, our experienced specialists work together to learn from one another. Taking center stage in developing a new approach to fluid dispensing that is based on fast acting valves and pneumatic pressure in addition to using micro-pumping technology. Utilizing pneumatic control and the latest Festo motion technology can, at a minimum, lower subsystem costs and, at a maximum, begin to exceed current speed, volume, and accuracy norms.
In addition, the team will work with individual customers on automated motion and fluid handling solutions that help bring their laboratory equipment to market faster and at less cost.
