Festo Motion Terminal pneumatic automation platform

Monday, 11 February, 2019 | Supplied by: Festo Pty Ltd



The Festo Motion Terminal is claimed to be the world’s first pneumatic automation platform to be controlled by apps. Thanks to software apps that replace over 50 individual components, Festo has moved pneumatics into the era of Industry 4.0.

The pneumatic and digital automation platform combines all the functions necessary to enable more adaptable and economical production processes and offers a new control concept, with a fusion of mechanics, electronics and software. Numerous functions can be combined with the same hardware using VTEM without the need for any modifications, no additional parts and no arduous installation.

The Festo Motion Terminal combines the benefits of both electric and pneumatic automation. With the matching Motion App, users can change functions at the press of a button, whether for a simple change in the directional control valve functions, gentle travel in the end positions, energy-efficient movements or proportional characteristics of the motion profiles.

This platform combines the strengths of pneumatics such as robustness and easy commissioning and operation, with benefits that until now were restricted to servo-pneumatics or electric automation for complex motion tasks. This means in the future this development can replace dedicated pneumatic and electric applications.
