Save energy!

Optimise energy consumption and determine potential compressed air savings for your system with Festo’s Energy Saving Services. You can reduce your costs by up to 60% in this way – even after commissioning.

Effi cient right from the start: sizing software

Exploit potential energy savings and avoid oversizing during the system design phase. Our software tools for precisely matched electric and pneumatic drive systems can accelerate your return on investment.

Reliable? Without a doubt!

Festo facilitates production processes worldwide, be it with safe handling of sheet metal components in the press shop or through innovative solutions in the body shop – with matching products in accordance with EC Machinery Directive DIN EN ISO 13849-1 and support.

Knowing up-front what happens next: condition monitoring

Ever increasing cost pressure demands shorter cycle times and greater system availability – as well as optimised energy effi ciency. System monitoring and preventive maintenance are our way of dealing with these challenges.

Working safely and simply

Work will be different in the future than it is today. Intuitive operation and the ergonomic functionality of tools are changing manual tasks and make them simpler, safer and less strenuous. In on the action: innovative tools from Festo.

Green light for fl exible production!

As different models, types and variants are produced on a single line, more vehicle models, more part variants and more effi ciency are needed. Multi-car production lines require highly fl exible and adaptive automation.



Our know-how


Press shop

Hinge cylinder DW

For harsh environments such as welding processes in the body shop: clamping cylinder DW. Ideal for tough applications thanks to a swivel bearing on the bearing cap and the piston rod.

Valve terminal VTSA

High data transmission rate, e.g. for real-time critical IO data. Safety functions to ISO 13849-1. Safety functions include venting of system parts and reversing.

Toothed belt and spindle axes EGC/EGC-HD

EGC is the range of heavy-duty electric axes with numerous variants. Perfectly suited to the mechatronic multi-axis modular system for 2D and 3D handling systems.

Tubing-fitting combination PUN-V0-C/NPQH

Ideal and safe in the vicinity of welding spatter thanks to a tubing wall thickness of 2 mm for all diameters.

Proportional pressure regulator VPPM

Reliable, precise control with 3 selectable presets by simply pressing a button. The robust multi-sensor regulator with integrated multi-sensors and multi-stage control circuit ensures excellent process reliability.

MS series service units

The integral concept provides application-specific solutions for your compressed air preparation requirements, for example with freely combinable function modules, size mixing and flow sensors.

Flow sensor SFAM-90

Even greater flow ranges with unidirectional fluid flow. Quick installation via prism clamping technology, reliable operation thanks to high-luminosity LED display.

Valve terminal CPX-MPA

Increased system availability, enhanced productivity, more process reliability thanks to integration of diagnostics and condition monitoring into the valve terminal CPX-MPA.

Vacuum generator OVEM

Condition monitoring increases process reliability and prevents downtime. The OVEM monitors the selected evacuation and ejection times of each cycle.

Suction cup ESV

Adapted for the automotive industry: either as a complete, fully assembled suction gripper or as a pure suction cup for mounting and combining with an extensive range of accessories.

Standard cylinder DSBC/DSBG to ISO 15552

Intelligent cushioning and reduced set-up times with self-adjusting PPS end-position cushioning. Simple installation, no readjustment required, optimised cushioning – ideal for the press shop. Type DSBG with tie rods.

Standard cylinder DSNU to ISO 6432

Quick to react thanks to low break-away force, good running performance and a long service life. And saves time: DSNU with self-adjusting PPS cushioning.

Body shop


Flawless painting of car bodies.

Accurate gripping and transport of pressed parts.

All assembly steps performed reliably. Precise machining and assembly of engine and transmission parts.

Deliver top quality at a competitive price.


Standard cylinder ADN with PPS cushioning

Self-adjusting PPS cushioning significantly reduces external effects and negative influences on the machine or system such as impacts and shock.

Electric cylinder EPCO

Optimised Motion Series: fully assembled system including drive, permanently mounted stepper motor, controller for servo-mode operation and cables. Always optimally matched with 2 operating modes: servo-mode or inexpensive stepper mode.

Planar surface gantry EXCM-10/-30

Extremely small with maximum coverage of the rectangular working space. For payloads of up to 3 kg, scalable stroke along the X and Y axes. Can be quickly and easily integrated into machines.

Control cabinets – ready-to-install solutions

With pneumatic and/or electrical equipment. Control cabinets from a single source protect all pneumatic, electrical and electronic system components.

Parallel gripper HGPT-B

Extremely powerful – up to 7 kN. A sturdy and precise kinematic system with T-slot guide for the gripping fingers ensures maximum torque absorption and a long service life.

Handling systems

Whether for small or big, light or heavy loads, our gantry systems are configured according to your requirements and solve any handling task, e.g. for automated parts feeding in final assembly.

Servo-pneumatic positioning module CMAX for CPX terminals

Free positioning with servopneumatics: the CMAX module on valve terminals controls linear or rotary pneumatic drives.

Position transmitter SMAT-8M

The first position transmitter designed as a proximity sensor. Sensing range up to 40 mm depending on the drive.

Air gap sensor SOPA

Light, compact and extremely precise in the µm range. Controller module, compressed air regulation, measurement air switch-off and air jet function, up to 4 measuring modules, multi-colour LCD.

Stopper cylinder DFST

For gentle stopping without impact or noise: high performance stopper cylinder DFST. With high energy absorption for optimised cycle times. Sturdy design for a long service life.

Pneumatic mini-slide DGSL

8 sizes, stroke lengths up to 200 mm, 3 different end stops, highly precise, high load bearing capacity, easy to install.

Linear drives DGC

Precise, high load bearing capacity, good guide performance and space-saving – thanks to short installation length relative to stroke. Loads and devices can be directly mounted on the slide. DGC-K with internal guide.
