What Do We Do?
Our Customer Solutions core competencies include product development, handling systems, control systems and process automation. Here’s a brief overview of our technical offering and services:
Pre-assembled solutions. Our solutions offering includes pneumatic cylinders, control panels, control cabinets, solutions for process automation, valve assemblies and much more. We can provide individual pneumatic and electric components that are pre-assembled or pre-packed in one module. You can combine standard or kitted components for ease of use and logistical reasons, reducing your production time and costs.
Custom solutions. In addition to our standard components, we can customize and build electro-mechanical and pneumatic components and systems, such as motor mounting kits, manifolds, integrated solutions and cylinder-valve combinations. You have a wide variety of options to choose from, including operating environment, special functions, size, weight, configuration and labeling.
Handling systems. By combining different technologies, such as electrical, pneumatics and servo-pneumatic systems, we can deliver a full range of 2D and 3D solutions — all designed according to your requirements.
For a standard system, you can use our Handling Guide Online to specify the right system quickly and easily in three steps. Or, if you have special technical requirements, you can send your application data directly to our experts with the click of a button.
Festo Motion Control Package (FMCP). These packages consist of pre-programmed gantry solutions for 1D, 2D, 3D, T and H configurations. They feature standardized function blocks, simplifying your controller architecture and saving you significant programming effort.
Engineering services. We’re ready to provide you with engineering services at any stage of your project — including pre-sales consulting, product or process application development, commissioning and integration.
