Festo launched its new Pneumatic Essentials program, a global undertaking to streamline ordering and ensure fast delivery of guaranteed in-stock pneumatic components. Additionally, the program aims at producing more compact parts for smaller footprint, energy-efficient machines.
Pneumatic Essentials is a one-stop shop for 16 components offered by Festo that fit the most common pneumatic applications. These components include air preparation, high-wear polyurethane tubing, one-way flow control valve, high flow valves for normal and harsh environments, self-teaching proximity switch, mini slide, guided drive, direct interchangeability ANSI NFPA cylinders, and metric and imperial round and compact cylinders.
Festo explains in a press statement that its North American customers will experience short delivery times for both catalogue and customized Essentials components from the Festo Global Production Center in Mason, Ohio.
Festo identified key products that would benefit from upgrading and built new manufacturing lines for those with new designs. Smaller, lighter parts contribute to reduced footprint and more energy-efficient machines and are important attributes of Essentials products.
