Laboratory Technology - Inspirator

In the past, only a few industries produced in cleanrooms – today, you will encounter cleanroom productions not only in electronics and photovoltaic manufacturing, medical technology or the semiconductor industry. Numerous other industries also need components that are fit for use in cleanrooms. The most important thing can be found here. The trade fair exhibit shows the combination of factory automation with a life science application. Individual process steps such as storing and feeding parts, opening and closing vessels and dispensing a liquid are linked in a fully automated manner. In order to transfer parts from one station to another and position them, the Festo cobot with MRC functionality is used, which hands over the individualised hand disinfection spray to you. !!! System can only be used in combination with D-LT2104 and D-RO2101 !!!

Electric Motion Sizing

Core Range DSNU-S "La ola"

Highly precise coordination captivates and fascinates us time and again, in show business as well. Whether a group of dancers or a crowd of football fans is involved: motion which is precisely coordinated in time and space results in a new type of motion – modulated motion. In this display, the agents of this motion are cylinders DSNU-S and ADN-S. Actuated by the valve terminal VTUG, they cause the ball to circulate.

Festo Cobot – with cutting-edge pneumatic technology inside!

The cutaway model shows the Festo Cobot without hull, revealing the technology inside. The Festo cobot derives many of its advantages from the benefits of pneumatics – for example sensitivity, low weight and excellent value for the money. The direct drives in the six articulated joints are very cost-effective and particularly lightweight because, unlike electric solutions, no heavy gear units or expensive force-torque sensors are required. • Pneumatic rotary drive with two compressed air chambers • Pressure sensors and displacement encoder continuously measure the actual values and transmit them to the safety PCB • Controller is integrated in the base of the cobot – no control cabinet needed • A unit with four piezo valves pressurises and exhausts the rotary drive in the articulated joint.

VTEM - Bending Device

Conventional, manual multi-pressure control and the digitalised solution using the Festo Motion Terminal VTEM are compared in this bending jig. The digital solution makes the application highly flexible and tamperproof, as well as extraordinarily compact through the use of high-end technology. Furthermore, the VTEM integrates itself into the master controller's architecture via all common fieldbus protocols. The characteristic pressure curve can be adapted to the process. Integrated sensors make the process intelligible and deviations are detected and corrected immediately. Presets can be used to changeover formats extremely quickly at the touch of a button.

Controlled Pneumatics

The exhibit shows a comparison of three different drives used for the same application: a mass of 15 kg is moved from end position to end position within 0.5 seconds over a 400 mm stroke. - Comparison of (1) electric drive solution with CMMT and ESBF, (2) exhaust-air throttled pneumatics with MPA and (3) demand-oriented pneumatics with VTEM and corresponding motion apps - Significant differences are apparent with regard to compressed air and energy consumption, investment costs, space requirements and end-position performance of the three drives. - Even compared to a well-designed drive with exhaust air flow control, the Controlled Pneumatics solution with Motion Terminal VTEM reduces consumption by up to 70% because compressed air is supplied in absolute accordance with actual demand – exactly as much as necessary for the required motion.

Comparison VTEM and CPX

How much energy can I save in the overall system if I use controlled pneumatics instead of standard pneumatics when handling ampoules? You can use the flip function to switch back and forth between the two variants. This function shows the respective energy consumption on the display. Controlled Pneumatics realizes exactly the same function, is more cost-effective due to less use of programmable hardware - and consumes 55% less compressed air. The use of intelligent pneumatics thus opens up new potential for saving energy in the utilization phase. Highlight Products: CPX, VTEM

Success story Corc


This display simulates the process of primary packaging called "Horizontal flow wrapping". It consists in unwinding a plastic film from a roll, formina a tube with longitudunal sealing and then bag forming with transversal roraring knives at the same time that the product comes on a conveyor belt.

Festo Automation Suite

The Festo Automation Suite brings together the parameterisation, programming and maintenance of electronic Festo devices in a single software package. Currently several applications have to be used for products. In the future, however, users will be able to carry out all commissioning and maintenance tasks with a single software package. This results in significant simplification and time savings especially when several devices are used. The Festo Automation Suite is thus a central part of the new automation platform from Festo.

Festo Cobot – for numerous, diverse tasks and quick changes

The application demonstrates the loading and unloading of a machine tool. The pick & place process is very similar, for example when assembling test devices in PCB production. Simple integration and the low weight of Festo's cobot enable quick task changeovers and relocationing. This permits highly flexible usage. • Highly flexible in applications • No control cabinet required: controller integrated in the base, simple push-in connectors • Lightweight and compact: weighing less than 17 kg • easy to transport to new locations without any tools[Here you can find more information on our Website](https://www.festo.com/de/en/e/about-festo/research-and-development/festo-cobot-id_1379474/?siteUid=fox_de&siteName=Festo+DE)

Hannover Messe 2022 | Progress in Motion

Seamless Connectivity - Linear and rotative movements in electrics and pneumatics

Economic, simple and flexible, end-to-end automation – this is a basic requirement for a wide variety of applications in assembly technology and the electronics industry, as well as for test and inspection systems and in packaging technology. In the application shown here, USB memory sticks are removed from storage and fed to a production process using a rotating plate. The exhibit is representative of storage and retrieval processes, the feeding parts to assembly processes and for testing, filling packages and installing components to modules. All motion and tasks, from the gripper and pick & place right on up to the rotating plate, are electrically operated and consistently automated in interaction with the servo drive, remote I/O and controller.

Media Switching

Media-separated valves VYKA, VYKB, VYKC and VZDB are used for handling very small quantities of liquids (from µl to approx. 2 l/min) and aggressive gases. They are characterized by their media separation and the resulting properties of being leak and particle free, as well as the use of inert materials that come into contact with the media.What happens on the exhibit? In this setup, a switching cycle is shown where liquids are transported from A to B by means of "pressure-over-liquid". They are metered into the target vessel by means of a needle. In the second step, compressed air is used to "blow through" the end line and the needle. Immediately afterwards, or even in parallel with "blowing through", the liquid line is switched from pressure to vacuum, and the medium is transported from B to A. If the container on the right side (B) is empty, the game starts all over again - it can theoretically be operated indefinitely without refilling liquids, as it is a circuit.

Algae are small climate savers. Even in their natural state they are extremely efficient photosynthesizers and absorb ten times more carbon dioxide (CO₂) than land plants. In bioreactors equipped with appropriate sensors, control technology and automation, the efficiency of algae can be increased to a hundred times that of land plants. This shows that they have a significant potential for a climate-neutral circular economy. With the PhotoBionicCell research project we are demonstrating a potential approach for industrial biologisation in the future.[Here you can find more informations on our Website.](https://www.festo.com/de/en/e/about-festo/research-and-development/bionic-learning-network/photobioniccell-id_1330847/?siteUid=fox_de&siteName=Festo+DE)

Battery Degassing and Sealing

Degassing and sealing are core processes in battery cell production. They take place immediately after initial contacting of the battery cells with electrical voltage, and involve piercing the battery cells with lances and extracting the forming gas produced during contacting. Once all the gas has been extracted, the cells are sealed again. This is typically done using thermal welding or ultrasonic welding. Handling solutions from Festo ensure a reliable and dynamic process, all the way to inspection and labelling. The remote I/O system CPX-AP-I looks after all communication, from the workpiece to the cloud.
