The Festo VTEM Motion Terminal is claimed to be the world’s first pneumatic automation platform to be controlled by apps. For the first time ever, the functions of a valve can be controlled and changed by software – without the need to change the hardware. Digitization is thus moving into pneumatics.
Industry 4.0-capable components like the Festo VTEM Motion Terminal offer many advantages for the loading and unloading process for tire presses. These are shorter cycle times, lower energy costs, reduced unplanned downtimes and fewer spare parts to keep in stock. This new automation platform opens up a new world of flexibility, adaptability and simplicity – including future opportunities for programming new apps for customized solutions.
