New Festo Products Include Ultracompact Cylinders

Festo recently introduced a number of new products, including a line of shorter and lighter pneumatic cylinders.



多亏了一个创新的整体using, ADN-S double-acting cylinders are 36% shorter and 20% lighter than similar actuators. Because their case material does not contain copper, zinc, or nickel as main constituents, ADN-S cylinders are recommended for use in production facilities manufacturing lithium-ion batteries. These cylinders are also recommended for electronic assembly and testing and are suitable for use in moderate-corrosion environments.

A key component of the Festo solution for dispensing systems is the Festo high speed EXCM gantry-robot. The EXCM family of gantry-based robots delivers +/- 50 μm precision positioning. EXCM gantries are available for workspaces as small as a sheet of paper to 1 m x 2 m and larger. The parallel kinematic H-gantry design offers low-mass/high-speed performance, as well as the largest possible deck area for the instrument’s footprint. The Festo VTOE 1- or 8-channel dispense head delivers precision high-speed dispensing in volumes from 1 μl to 1 ml and more with a total coefficient of variation in the 3% range for most applications.

Combined with the award winning PGVA “airbox” pressure supply, a complete dispense system can be set up in minutes with a PC and controlled digitally or via Ethernet connection. The compact PGVA airbox, which measures only 8 x 3 x 8 inches, provides +/-700 mbar microfiltered air or vacuum with 10 mbar precision for a wide variety of laboratory applications. With a digital output for controlling solenoid dispense valves and pipettes, the PGVA supports a complete pipetting system.



Festo’s new DFPC double-acting linear pneumatic actuators are optimized for process automation. The DFPC line gives OEMs and end users the ability to shorten design time, lower inventory, and simplify support through component standardization. Economical in-stock models reduce supply-chain risk, while customized models add design flexibility.

DFPC执行器are sturdy, corrosion resistant, and ideal for use in water treatment, mining, pulp and paper, power plants, and chemical and metals manufacture. Typical DFPC applications include actuation of gate valves, knife-gate valves, pinch valves, and process valves without housing. End-position cushioning on both sides enables greater performance through high-speed travel. Options for proximity sensors permit reliable end-position detection, while the optional external displacement encoder provides actual position.

Mounting based on the international standards of ISO 5210 and ISO 15552 simplify product substitution and create the opportunity for universal application. For long service life in harsh conditions, the DFPC piston rod, screws, nuts, and tie rods are made of stainless steel. The barrel and end caps are aluminum. Elastic cushioning rings reduce the piston impact force, which also contributes to long service life. Available piston diameters are 80, 100, and 125 mm; stroke lengths vary from 10 to 1,600 mm. Ambient operating temperature ranges from –20°C to 80°C (-4°F to 176°F). Operating pressure is 3 to 8 bar (43.5 to 116 psi).

Festo PM tubing uses standard push connectors (green center) and requires minimal space.

Festo的PM铝气管管在焊接细胞中提供了焊接剂溶液,每次考虑都优于层压和钢气管管。Festo PM管非常适合新的焊接细胞以及现有系统的成本和时间有效改造解决方案。

In comparison with steel tubing, the Festo aluminum solution is significantly less costly. Steel requires specialized tools to bend the tubing, but PM tubing is easily formed by hand to fit the contours of the welding system.
