Pneumatic Essentials is a one-stop-shop for fundamental components such as this mini slide, proximity switch, guided drive, and compact cylinder

Festo launches the Pneumatic Essentials program, an ambitious global undertaking to streamline ordering, ensure fast delivery of guaranteed in-stock pneumatic components, and produce more compact parts for today’s smaller footprint, energy efficient machines. In addition to competitive prices, guaranteed availability, short delivery time, and innovative design, customers are assured of world-renowned Festo quality components that boost machine performance, lower waste, and reduce the risk of downtime.

Pneumatic Essentials is a one-stop-shop for the 16 fundamental components that Festo finds fit 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.

Making something so simple isn’t easy. Festo invested sizable resources over four years to create Pneumatic Essentials.

North American customers will experience short delivery times for both catalog and customized Essentials components from the Festo Global Production Center in Mason, Ohio. Quick, assured Essentials shipping is available to customers globally from Festo regional service centers. Global availability is an inventory and uptime plus for original equipment manufacturers and end users, as they are assured of rapid receipt of replacement parts.

Festo invested substantial time, energy, and resources in augmenting manufacturing and logistics to ensure a robust supply chain for Pneumatic Essentials. And the company was not content simply to rebrand existing components. Festo identified key products that would benefit from upgrading and built new manufacturing lines for those with new designs. For example, the new design-award winning SDBT-MSX proximity sensor is the world’s first programmable proximity switch with automatic switching point setting.

Smaller, lighter parts contribute to reduced footprint and more energy efficient machines and are important attributes of Essentials products. The DGST pneumatic mini slide, for example, is one of the most compact units on the market. Festo machines the DGST slide and yoke plate from a single piece of aluminum, ensuring low torsion and accurate alignment.

A new ultra-compact double-acting cylinder, the ADN-S, is 36% shorter and 20% lighter than similar actuators. And the round body metric cylinder, DSNU-S, has the same bore and stroke as its ISO counterpart DSNU, yet is up to 40% slimmer, 35 mm shorter, 50% lighter, and ideal for space constrained applications.

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.
