Electric and pneumatic automation specialist Festo will showcase its latest flexible pneumatic automation platform, the Festo Motion Terminal VTEM. The platform makes it easy to switch between different pneumatic functions using apps, without needing to change the hardware. For example, the selectable pressure level app ensures that the green tire is loaded in curing presses gently, reducing loading time and energy consumption.
Apart from the Motion Terminal VTEM, Festo also develops digitized solutions to increase productivity and reduce downtime by offering comprehensive diagnostics, condition monitoring and improved maintenance. Processing and long-term analysis of data is done in the cloud, while intuitive dashboards visualize the information.
