  • A pneumatic cylinder is an actuator operated with compressed air usually up to a maximum of 12 bar in order to generate linear or rotary motion. A distinction should be made between single-acting and double-acting cylinders (work is performed only in one direction or in both directions). Typical application areas for pneumatic drives are clamping, lifting, countersinking, pushing, pulling, feeding, turning, gripping, clamping and holding and many others. Pneumatic drives are characterised by high acceleration and deceleration. Pneumatic drives are sturdy and flexible thanks to the compressibility of the air.
  • At Festo, servo-pneumatics stands for controlled pneumatic positioning technology. Servo-pneumatics is always a system consisting of a cylinder with a displacement encoder, a proportional directional control valve, and a position controller. With a servo-pneumatic system, a pneumatic cylinder can be moved to a preset target position in a position-controlled manner or generate a preset target force in a force-controlled manner. Servo-pneumatics is a "soft" positioning technology because air is a compressible drive medium. When the drive is in a controlled position, it can be pushed away by a correspondingly large external force. These systems are good value for money, especially for moving weights over 10 kg.
  • Positioning drives – planning and designing electric drives Create the optimum drive package quickly and reliably. Positioning drives calculate suitable combinations of the electric axis, electric motor and motor controller using just a few application details. It provides you with all the relevant data, including the bill of materials and documentation for the selected combination. This helps avoid design errors and results in significantly improved energy efficiency for the system.

  • Motors and integrated controllers Festo offers motors and integrated controllers packages that vary from 24 VDC to 48 VDC. These systems can be used in linear and rotary applications. Their integrated motor and controller range includes the drive and motor as a complete unit.
  • Controllers for stepper motors The stepper controller program offers a cost-effective and straightforward way of implementing electrical movements; in particular, the OMS (Optimised Motion Series) makes moving and positioning easier than ever before and much more cost-effective than conventional electric solutions. Our stepper controllers generally provide "open-loop" and "closed-loop" options, i.e. the option of being operated with an encoder. Controllers for servo motors The servo controller range is specially designed for our toothed belt axes and spindle axes as well as for our electric cylinders – perfect in combination with engineering software and enhanced with complete safety solutions in the mechanical and drive systems. Together with our automation platform and other comprehensive motion control solutions, the servo drives provide a virtually unlimited range of solutions for industrial automation tasks, supported by innovative software solutions for engineering and configuration. Thanks to the variety of available field buses such as PROFINET, Ethernet/IP, EtherCAT®, PROFIBUS, Modbus®, CANopen and DeviceNet®, the servo controllers are ideally suited for communication with virtually all PLCs.

  • These are ready-to-install functional modules for repositioning, feeding and removing small parts in extremely confined spaces. The movement is force-guided via a slotted link and enables very short cycle times. Depending on the handling system, either a C- or L-shaped movement is carried out. The movements in the Y and Z direction are variable within a range of 40 millimetres. The handling modules are designed to be used with electric, servo-pneumatic or pneumatic drives. Pre-assembled modules with an attached drive are also available. The interface to the workpiece allows various gripper types from Festo to
  • These are ready-to-install cartesian robots for multi-dimensional movements based on Festo linear and slide drives or parallel kinematic systems. A precise solution is available for every application, from extremely small to sturdy and highly dynamic handling systems. Linear, planar surface and three-dimensional gantries enable free positioning within a linear range up to a three-dimensional space.
  • Ready-to-install parallel kinematic systems for free positioning in a three-dimensional workspace represent precision in movement and positioning as well as exceptionally high dynamic response. The kinematics are based on a parallel kinematic drive concept with three fixed motors that are mounted on a pyramid-shaped mechanical structure consisting of linear axes and carbon fibre-reinforced rods. The highly rigid mechanical design and low moving mass make the parallel kinematic system up to three times faster than comparable Cartesian systems. The robot is suspended from the top of the installation so that access to and usage of the workspace can be maximised while also contributing to a reduction of the overall footprint.
