Festo sees good Growth Prospects

Automation as Enabler for Energy Transition and Climate Protection
After years of strong growth, 2023 was a year of consolidation. Turnover was just below the previous year’s level (- 4.3% to around 3.65 billion euros). Festo continued to invest heavily in research and development and the expansion of regional market supply. The company sees good opportunities for growth again in the medium term.

The industrial transformation takes off with automation

Festo solutions from electromobility to green hydrogen and biologization
How can the industrial transformation be achieved at an acceptable cost? What ecological innovations can industry expect in the coming years? Automation provides answers to these questions. Festo has come up with many solutions for electromobility, green hydrogen and bioreactors. This can be seen at the Hannover Messe from April 22-26, 2024 in Hall 7 Stand D31.

Many functions safe under the roof of VTUX

Festo's new valve terminal VTUX combines the advantages of three classic valve terminals
Festo is now making it even easier for its users: the functions of the classic valve terminals CPV, MPA-L/S and VTUG are now available under the umbrella of the convertible valve terminal VTUX. In addition, the AP-I and AP-A communication system creates the ideal platform for digitalized production. This brings flexibility and openness - true to the motto "Open Architecture".

Pneumatics Makes a Technological Leap with Piezo

The first high-precision proportional valve terminal VTEP opens up new application areas
Controlled Pneumatics is the revolutionary compressed air technology from Festo that is opening up new perspectives for pneumatics. Thanks to this technology, the pressure control of the compact proportional valve terminal VTEP is extremely sensitive, down to less than 1 mbar. This is perfect for applications such as wafer polishing or patch clamping in life science. In addition, Controlled Pneumatics uses high-precision piezo valves to reduce compressed air consumption by up to 50%.
