November 4, 2020

Festo has packaged a mix of innovative products with live product demonstrations for Pack Expo Connects November 9-13.

Live demonstrations include:

  •    –   Automation solutions for the COVID-19 pandemic – new products for life science companies developing respiratory care products, packaging, high volume sample analysis equipment, and vaccines production systems
  •    –   Low cost and easy to use electric alternatives to pneumatic actuators with built in I/O link functionality for IIoT communications – the Simplified Motion Series
  •    –   The CPX-AP-I next generation of distributed I/O for pneumatics and electric automation on a single modular platform for advantages such as predictive maintenance and quick commissioning 
  •    –   The benefits from FSMA and other food safety regulations in terms of energy savings and improved machine availability

Additional live demonstrations from Festo showcase process automation for the food industry, the latest adaptive grippers for end-of arm-tooling, and harnessing the power of product traceability in smart manufacturing. Each presentation will be 15 minutes in length with two per day. The schedule of live demonstrations can be found on the Festo Pack Expo Connects show page.

The Festo virtual booth will feature 10 automation products, including the Motion Terminal for digitalization of pneumatics, the smart Multi-Carrier conveyor for increased flexibility, and the CPX-E modular controller/VTUG valve terminal combination for increasing the density of I/O in a control cabinet and for minimizing tubing to make installation faster and less complex. Visitors to the virtual booth will be able to chat with Festo product and application personnel, access product videos, and download literature.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
