INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION SYSTEMS

Conventional application areas for pneumatic drives include mechanical movements such as clamping, lifting, countersinking. gripping, stopping and much more. Servo-pneumatic drives are primarily used in “soft” positioning technology because air is a compressible drive medium. Typical application areas for electric drive technology can be found throughout automation technology, especially in the field of positioning.

pneumatic grippers

Whether for sturdy gripping in a machine tool or micro-gripping i electronics manufacturing , the range of grippers from Festo covers all kinds of applications .

A gripper is a pneumatic or electric drive which is used to hold, position and move a workpiece. A gripper forms the connection between the workpiece and the handling system.

The grippers and gripping technology from Festo provide solutions for a wide variety of handling applications worldwide.

Mechanical grippers are moved by a drive on the inside and convert the drive motion into a gripping motion of the gripper jaws via a transmission ratio. This movement of the gripper jaws is referred to as a stroke. Depending on the stroke and gripping force, workpieces of different sizes can be gripped.

  • For gentle internal gripping of fragile workpieces, the bellows gripper DHEB clamps by adapting to their inner contour.

  • 11 sizes for gripping diameter from 8 to 85 mm

  • Direction of movement: bellows upwards or downwards

  • Different bellows materials: EPDM or silicone

  • Air connection on the side or from above

  • Optimised process sequence with increased quality: prevents the workpieces from being scratched

  • Additional reliability: optional sensing via proximity or position sensor

  • For gentle internal gripping of delicate workpieces

Industrial Robots

With the help of handling systems and industrial robots, workpiece handling – for example gripping, positioning, stacking, grouping or indexing – can be largely automated. Handling systems therefore ensure the smooth and efficient flow of materials in fully automated processes. Manufacturing companies can save money and significantly increase productivity by investing in a handling system.

PNEUMATIC HANDLING SYSTEMS

Our pneumatic systems are ready-to-install handling 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.

Ready-to-install Cartesian robots are based on Festo linear and slide drives or parallel kinematic systems and allow multi-dimensional movements.

Our delta robots with parallel kinematics are also ready-to-install systems. They are used for freely positioning parts in three-dimensional workspaces. The industrial robots provide excellent precision in movement and positioning as well as exceptionally high dynamic response.

We offer control systems that are suitable for handling systems and robots all from a single source, and that are tested and ready to connect.

Vacuum Technologies

Vacuum Technology is also an integral part in the field of research in chemistry, biology, and physics. Gentle handling, and a compact, space- and weight-saving design are part of its advantages and the reason why it is primarily used in precisely defined industrial processes. It perfectly combines fast cycle times with low maintenance requirements.

Festo vacuum generators work according to the Venturi principle, i.e. they are purely pneumatically-operated vacuum ejectors. These vacuum ejectors can generate either high volume flows or a high vacuum

Suction cups and suction grippers form the link between the vacuum generator and the workpiece to be transported and are therefore also an important part of vacuum systems

In addition to vacuum components such as vacuum generators and suction cups, you can of course also buy matching accessories from Festo.

Valves And Valve Terminals

Electrically and pneumatically actuated directional control valves

A directional control valve is used to change, open or block the flow of a medium in a pneumatic system. Compressed air is the fluid that is normally used in pneumatic actuators. The valves differ in terms of the design of their control element, the number of switching positions and flow paths as well as the type of actuation. There are mechanically, pneumatically, or electrically operated directional control valves.

Solenoid-operated directional control valves from Festo use the force of electromagnets to open and close valves. In this case, the solenoid is used as a control module that “opens” or “closes” the medium within a line (NC/NO). When an electrical current is applied to the solenoid, the valve is actuated and, depending on the control type, operates as either a directly, a servo-controlled or force pilot operated valve.

This universal valve has been newly designed on the inside and now offers an outstanding combination of high flow rates and a compact design.

Our VUVG range offers you a long service life and saves on operating costs. Not only can maintenance costs be reduced, but production downtimes can also be avoided

Sturdy solenoid valve that is easy to operate.

Sensors

Festo proximity sensors are especially designed and optimised for Festo drives. They detect the magnetic field of permanent magnets built into the piston of the cylinder, thus indirectly indicating the position of the piston rod.

Festo proximity sensors are especially designed and optimised for Festo drives. They detect the magnetic field of permanent magnets built into the piston of the cylinder, thus indirectly indicating the position of the piston rod.

The available range covers freely configurable proximity sensors, modular systems, and solutions for special applications such as explosion protection, acids, food, cooling lubricants, weld field, etc.

The sensors series SIE… keeps a close eye on all metals, with functions ranging from sensing to distance measurement of metallic objects.

Position transmitters continuously and contactlessly record the movement of the piston in the position measuring range and output that information as a standardised analogue current or voltage signal. They are the ideal solution for all applications requiring object detection and process monitoring, such as thickness measurement, wear, good/reject inspection, etc.

Pressure sensors and vacuum switches for monitoring all pressure values: programmable, or as a modular product.

By monitoring the flow, simplified diagnostic and condition monitoring processes can be implemented; a change in the flow rate is often an indication that problems are likely to occur. The quality of the final product can also be monitored.

With their optical measuring techniques, the sensors in the SOE… series cover a wide variety of tasks, from recognising colours and tiny parts through to laser distance sensing. All perfectly matched with products and services from Festo.

The signal converter SVE4 converts the analogue output signal from a sensor into switching points that can be taught in directly on the signal converter. Ideal anywhere where the accessibility of sensors is restricted.

Electric limit switches are used for signalling in end positions or intermediate positions.

Pneumatic sensors are contactless signal generators. They are especially suitable for end-position sensing and position monitoring where high accuracy is required.

Faster cycle times, better process control, reduced downtimes: these days system and machine management that ensures the optimal use of resources plays a critical role in the economic success of a business. Sensors, too, are an indispensable part of this success in automation technology
