Festo focuses on productivity concepts at PPMA 2015

30 October, 2015

At this year’s PPMA show pneumatic and electric drive technology provider, Festo, showcased a number of its new developments, concepts and solutions for the food and beverage sector. Visitors to the stand were able to discuss how they can increase productivity in different ways by considering efficiency, simplicity, security and accessing Festo’s key competencies.

Highlights in the ‘Efficiency’ zone were examples of new software for the extremely fast design and specification of handling systems – ideal for end-of-line packaging applications, and a energy efficiency air preparation unit that is claimed to be able to reduce losses from equipment on stand-by and diagnoses leaks.

Key focuses in the ‘Simplicity’ area included easy-to-use electric drives – delivered as a package complete with axis, motor, cables and drive. Even the set-up is web-based with a simple download making the system easy to configure, order and commission.

Examples of complete solutions included cabinet and handling systems that can provide users with complete ‘Security’ and peace of mind that their system will provide guaranteed performance at a fixed price.

In the ‘Competency’ zone, new products included a highly robust IP69k rated valve terminal; the MPA-C co-developed with leading filling customers to ensure it meets the demanding hygienic and aggressive washdown environments such as those typically found in the dairy industry.

Festo invests more than 7 per cent of its annual turnover into R&D as well as working with a wide range of external research and educational establishments and actively participating in collaborative projects.
