Festo has acquired Fabco-Air, Gainesville, Fla., a leading manufacturer of pneumatic automation components. The acquisition is the latest in a series of investments to support sales growth in North America. Fabco-Air’s NPT pneumatic cylinders are used on new machinery and systems and as replacement components.

Like Festo, Fabco-Air provides custom solutions that bring machines and systems to market faster with less engineering required by equipment manufacturers. Fabco-Air, which recently celebrated its 60thanniversary, will continue to operate independently and will remain in Gainesville. Festo and Fabco-Air implementation teams are working together on sales channel and product catalogue integration strategies.

“This new association with Festo provides Fabco-Air with the resources to grow larger and faster than otherwise possible,” said Scot LaMar, Fabco-Air General Manager. “Importantly for our employees and customers, Festo has a similar culture that comes from being a family owned business. It was a key consideration in the decision to join the Festo team.”

“Festo customers and sales channel partners are excited to have the expanded product range available for their applications,” said Michael Zakrzewski, Vice President of Marketing Management – North America. “The acquisition of Fabco-Air quickly broadens our product line, creating opportunities to fulfill more customer requirements with a strong focus on customer satisfaction.”

New Product


Maplesoft™ announced the release of MapleSim™ Insight, a new software product from Maplesoft that gives machine builders powerful, simulation-based debugging and 3-D visualization capabilities that directly connect to their automation tools. As a result, engineers can perform simulation-based testing of their controller easily and efficiently.

Simulation-based testing of machine control strategies is a key element of virtual prototyping and using digital twins for virtual commissioning. However, this step can be cumbersome, as many automation tools provide limited options for machine-level, simulation-based controller testing, and these options often require moving development to an entirely new platform.
