Festo releases most recent machines and systems in automation

Festo has declared that more than 2,200 components from its item range named Stars in Automation are accessible for delivery around the world. The organization has doubled its production limits worldwide over the last two years. The focal point of these endeavors has been on growing the Festo core item range in the field of pneumatic and electric automation items.

These Stars in Automation incorporate more than 2,200 components from each period of the pneumatic and electrical control chain, from compressed air preparation, valves and cylinders to accessories, for example, coordinating tubing and fittings. With the Festo core item range, machine and system manufacturers can understand around 80 percent of all applications rapidly, easily, and at attractive costs, notwithstanding when huge amounts are required, as per Festo.

A considerable lot of the components marked with the star are prepared to be shipped only 24 hours after the order is gotten, while configurable items are prepared for delivery within five days. All items in the core item range are accessible worldwide and with a similar level of quality thanks to automated production at different decentralized locations in the core markets of Germany, China, and the US. There are further plants in India, Brazil, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, and Switzerland.

Distribution is additionally decentralized gratitude to exceptionally automated logistics centres in Germany, China, and the US, so 70 percent of all clients can be come to within one day.

The sign of the most recent components of the core item range is the coordinated effort between the design engineers and production organizers at Festo. They worked firmly together during the improvement of these items to guarantee that the Festo plants can produce the components with a high level of automation. For instance, Festo engineers produced the yoke and slide for the new mini slide. DGST as a single part so as to empower huge amounts to be produced effectively. The developers effectively decreased the quantity of components by 60 percent contrasted and the past model.

This simultaneous engineering methodology permitted Festo to diminish cycle times by just about 50 percent for the DGST or the guided drive DFM. Festo plants would now be able to produce a DFM consistently, for instance. Another example is the completely automated production line for the standard valve VUVG, which produces a completely collected valve at every 12 seconds.

The ways between the individual generation steps are abbreviated and throughput times are diminished gratitude to new organisational strategies. These incorporate aligning production and assembly with value streams and the predictable use of Operational Excellence (OPEX) strategies, for example, Lean Management or Six Sigma. Festo likewise expects to utilize these new techniques to increase efficiency and productivity at its production, assembly and logistics locations over the coming years.

The quickened item advancement procedure has prepared for the most recent Stars in Automation. The mini slide DGST, for instance, is the littlest of its sort and the shortest slide drive available.

Other new Stars in Automation incorporate the lightweight compact cylinder ADN-S, which is created on the whole as one section and can perform little and micro-developments in the littlest of spaces. The regulators and filter regulators of the MS2 series service units are intended for utilize near the procedure straightforwardly in the machine and for end-of-arm applications. They are lightweight and compact, yet with high flow rates of up to 350 l/min.
