Whether you work on drives or chassis, the exterior or the interior, or you manufacture electronics or tyres, the conditions are tough and the cost pressures are huge. In this environment, Tier 1 suppliers need the most efficient and technically optimal solution as quickly and effortlessly as possible, regardless of where in the world they are. And often a mix of pneumatic and electrical technologies, too.
The Spanish company Tecdisma Ltd. manufactures hybrid tubing at high speed and these days, thanks to an intelligent technology mix of pneumatics and electrics, it can let its machines run much quicker, and make modifications simply to meet new requirements. This saves costs and drives up efficiency and productivity. Most of the pneumatic and electrical movements are safeguarded using standard solutions from Festo - compact, robust and reliable. Decentralized control concepts and convenient connection options combine pneumatic and electric control chains perfectly.
Take a look at this video to see what it all looks like in practice:
With CPX/MPA, you can integrate pneumatic and electric control chains easily, quickly, flexibly and seamlessly into all automation concepts and company-specific standards – and for Industry 4.0 as well!
Load tyre presses faster and more efficiently – with the Festo Motion Terminal
In tyre production, every second and every kilowatt counts. Whether in compounding, tyre building, vulcanisation or quality control, there is a huge potential for greater productivity. Get the most out of your systems – with new, efficient automation solutions or through intelligent retrofitting.
We replace conventional pneumatics in the control cabinet with digitised pneumatics. And you reap the benefits: the Festo Motion Terminal VTEM makes loading times up to 33% faster and reduces power consumption by up to 60%.
Digitised pneumatics for radically optimised usage: our highly functional Motion Terminal VTEM with its Motion Apps and new valve technology replaces over 50 individual components and even entire systems – via tablet and smartphone.
