Festo to introduce several tools and products at Semicon West 2016

July 7, 2016 — At Semicon West 2016, July 12-14 in San Francisco, Festo is unveiling a variety of solutions – both tools and products –designed to lower engineering overhead and bring machines to market faster.

The servo press solution is the latest example of Festo solutions efforts to incorporate productivity. The servo press kit is a pre-assembled system consisting of modular operating software and harmonized Festo components, including electric spindle drive, motor, motor controller, force sensor, and control 
system. Customers integrate The Festo servo press solution into the press-fitting application. Application-specific functions can be displayed on PCs, tablets, and machine mounted interfaces.

Function elements in the software’s integrated lib¬rary configure and implement joining processes. Monitoring the process is simple. Critical process and quality information are displayed as well as recorded for reporting and optimization purposes.

The servo press solution is shown in an active demonstration at the booth. In two other active demos, Cartesian robots are utilized to assemble batteries and handle electronic components. The compact, VUVG range of solenoid valves and valve terminals are on display.

The Handling Guide Online (HGO) configurator for Cartesian robots is a new productivity tool. Equipped with basic application information such as load, cycle time, load voltage, and workspace size, a design engineer can specify a single axis, 2D or 3D Cartesian robot and receive a CAD drawing of the robot in about 20 minutes. Quotes arrive on average within 48 hours. Users have the option of ordering Cartesian robots fully assembled or as disassembled modules. Active and static Cartesian robots are displayed throughout the Festo Semicon West exhibit. 

The new Optimized Motion Series (OMS) of packaged linear and rotary electrical axes solutions helps lower overhead by speeding up specification, assembly, and commissioning of linear axes. The OMS solutions combine a set of rugged linear and rotary electromechanical actuators, motors, drives, cables, and mounting hardware with simple specification, assembly, and configuration.

Complete OMS axes, including actuator with mounted motor, drive cables, and assembly hardware, are ordered using a single order code and delivered in one box.

The FAST Mobile App gives customers  access to the Festo FAST catalog. Users can navigate through the FAST product selections for technical information, pricing, and delivery. The mobile app is also a solution for tracking and managing product orders.
