October 7, 2014 — Festo has entered into an agreement with ZAYTRAN, Inc., to become the exclusive distributor of ZAYTRAN products in the North American marketplace. This partnership will expand the customer base of both companies and increase the range of pneumatic grippers offered by Festo. Grippers by ZAYTRAN have a history of being tough and demonstrating precision. ZAYTRAN offers grippers for dirty environments, such as the company’s Magnum® grippers, which have a patented purge port that can be supplied with a small positive pressure to prevent ingress of contaminants. On the other hand, PET Magnum grippers have been tested and approved for use in Class 1 clean rooms via a vacuum applied to the same purge system.   In addition, ZAYTRAN has developed special semiconductor versions that can tolerate DI (de-ionized) water as well as hydrofluoric acid. For large part applications the XRAY-S series has proven to be the company’s premier large format gripper. ZAYTRAN’s significant customer base is comprised of automation integrators who work in every major industry from hard disk fabrication to aircraft manufacturing. “ZAYTRAN is excited to grow its business through this new distribution agreement with Festo,” said Ted Zajac, Jr., President of ZAYTRAN. “Festo is a world-class automation company recognized for excellence in engineering, manufacturing, distribution, and customer service. This is a major step forward for our company, and I can’t think of a finer company to be associated with than with Festo.” About Festo:     Festo is a leading manufacturer of pneumatic and electromechanical systems, components, and controls for process and industrial automation.
