At Festo, the sizing and simulation tools available online help you to arrive quickly at the automation solution you need. And the specialists in our worldwide service and support network are available to provide help at any time.
You will find further free resources and software tools to simplify sizing in the Festo product area. Together with detailed product information (including for CAD support), the appropriate tools for sizing, simulation and selection are conveniently assigned to every product by part number or order code.
This sizing and simulation tool helps you to find the right electric or electromechanical servo drive for your application. The calculation is performed on the basis of a small number of parameters like mass, stroke/travel distance, cycle time, and promptly tells you which solution is the most economical for your requirements, whether servo drive and motor or servo drive, motor and mechanical system.
Find the optimum actuator package, quickly and reliably: PositioningDrives calculates a suitable combination of electric axis, electric motor and motor controller from a few pieces of application data. It returns all relevant data right up to the bill of materials and documentation for the chosen combination. This prevents sizing errors and results in a significant improvement in the industrial energy efficiency of the system.
Configure the right handling system, from a single-axis solution to a 3-dimensional gantry, quickly and easily with the Handling Guide Online. All you have to do is enter the axis definition, payload, etc. and in just 20 minutes you have a perfect, ready-to-order systems. We supply it together with CAD data and commissioning files, ready to install or partially assembled.
Whether you are looking for a manually operated process valve, a unit with a pilot valve and sensor box or with a positioner, the configurator will find the right solution in just a few steps, with correctly configured CAD data and documentation that you can download directly. In this way you receive a solution that is integrated with each other and ready for installation.
