Pneumatics is an easy-to-control technology and is now becoming even more simple, versatile and flexible – with the brand-new Festo Motion Terminal VTEM. Motion apps are moving pneumatics into the age of Industry 4.0. These apps control a single piece of hardware and can replace over 50 individual components.
The first valve to be controlled using apps. Your route to greater productivity.
The digitalization we are experiencing as part of Industry 4.0 will profoundly alter the world of production. With the Festo Motion Terminal, Festo is launching the world’s first standardised platform that will develop into a “cyber-physical system” thanks to its intelligent fusion of mechanics, electronics and software. This system is characterised by an extremely high level of adaptability and flexibility.
It will enable you to build intelligent machines now for the world of tomorrow, and ensure your systems are truly ready for Industry 4.0, even in terms of pneumatics. Motion apps plus new valve technology: this combination can be used to replace over 50 individual components, and even entire system solutions, from flow control valves to a wide range of directional control valves, proportional regulators, Soft Stop solutions and even pneumatic positioning tasks.
Flexibility and standardization, hand in hand
The Festo Motion Terminal offers you benefits throughout the entire value chain, from the design to the modernization of your machine. For the first time, pneumatic functions can be changed via an app, without the need to change the hardware. From simple directional control valve functions to complex motion tasks, this solution allows you to standardize your applications while offering unparalleled levels of flexibility.
Outstanding energy efficiency
To support long-term sustainability, the Festo Motion Terminal uses an integrated approach to energy-efficient operation. As a machine builder, this enables you to make your systems even more efficient.
