Festo works in close cooperation with you to develop your ideas into medical devices while saving development and validation time. Our products are well proven in medical devices, and can be customized to meet your specific needs.
What is stopping you from getting your ideas to market? Design? Manufacturing? FDA approval? Festo understands the challenges in front of you and has the extensive experience in medical technology to provide components and solutions that are cost-effective, safe, and ready-to-install.
We have standard products that are well established in existing medical devices, specific medical device designs designed to speed FDA approval, and offer engineering design, development and manufacturing done in an ISO 13485 quality environment.
Festo’s standard components are held up to the same standards as our medical technology-specific products: they are rigorously tested and proven to perform reliably, precisely, safely, and built to withstand the stress of routine daily use for long periods of time.
We offer a comprehensive line of over 30,000 standard components, competitively priced and ready for fast delivery, each one innovatively designed and built to ISO-9001 standards.
Medical Device Specific Components
Festo develops and builds valves and controls for gas and liquid handling designed with acceptance and approval for medical devices in mind. They are being used today for metering oxygen and respiratory gases, pressure regulation for compression therapy and pneumatic operation of surgical instruments.
Our medical device components are designed and manufactured in an ISO 13485 quality environment, making validation easier and speeding up your overall time-to-market.
Engineering and Research
Our ability to provide customized solutions comes from decades of in-depth collaboration with our clients. Whatever phase of development you’re in with your next generation medical device, you can always draw upon our product design and engineering expertise.
Festo’s Technical Engineering Center in Boston is a cutting edge research and development facility, staffed by a team of experts specializing in gas and fluid control, as well as sample handling. We’re on-hand and available to address your requirements in a targeted and individual manner, and we can do so right from the concept stage.
Piezo Technology: Compact, Quiet, Energy-efficient Valves
Piezo valves are often a better alternative to conventional solenoid valves, especially in the areas of flow and pressure regulation. They are small, lightweight, quiet, extremely precise, very durable, incredibly fast and above all, they save energy. These valves can also be modified or individually expanded, whether in terms of flow rate or pressure adjustment, making gas-dosing extremely simple.
Applications: Seeing clearly. Breathing freely.
From therapy systems to surgical instruments to medical equipment, Festo’s innovative pneumatic automation technology is used by life sciences companies for a wide-range of applications. The reliability, intelligence and efficiency of our products help enhance the quality of everyone’s work and life.
Stationary ventilation in a clinical environment
Gas flows and pressures are precisely controlled in stationary and mobile ventilation therapy. The proportional valves with piezo technology dose oxygen in accordance with the needs of the patient, and thus avoid unnecessary consumption.
The surgical tools for ophthalmological operations are pneumatically operated. Festo valve technology optimizes the delicate processes, transporting various liquids and gases, helping with the vacuum-assisted removal of micro-particles and pneumatic powering of the surgical instruments.
Dental Service Units
Festo solutions help in the regulation of fluid flow, gas flow and sludge. The various treatment instruments at dental service units are controlled independently of one another by switching valves, proportional valves, pumps and compressors. A compressed air controller regulates drill speed in the dental turbine.
