March 29, 2019 — Festo displays electric and pneumatic motion automation solutions at Automate 2019, April 8-11, McCormick Place in Chicago. Festo will introduce the DGST pneumatic mini slide. The slide and yoke plate on this component represent a single unit. This eliminates the problems associated with yokes vibrating loose from slides. The DGST features high feed forces, symmetrical mounting interfaces, and roller bearing guides. The DGST can be operated without additional cushioning devices.
The DHEF adaptive gripper offers maximum flexibility while requiring minimum engineering. The adaptive gripper can hold a range of shapes, unaligned objects, and several objects at once. The DHEF is suitable for human/machine interaction.
The linear axes ELGC and mini slide EGSC electric actuators are used for applications where compact dimensions are essential. These axes can be combined into space-saving handling systems that fit seamlessly into assembly, test and inspection, small parts handling, and desk top applications. They offer a ratio between installation space and working space. The axes and mini slide feature a common system approach, platform architecture, and adapter-less connections.
servo press kit’s software – this solution’s differentiating feature.
Festo shows three different electric drives in a gripping, picking, and placing application. A similar configuration could be used for capping and de-capping small vials or for stopping and separating workpiece carriers on a transfer system.
Festo displays a selection of electric drives and linear actuators, IO Link fieldbus solutions, grippers, compact valves and valve terminals, and the new line of NFPA cylinders from its Fabco-Air business unit.
