Festo has introduced a range of products for the high volume industrial control markets. The new product line includes air preparation units, compact and ISO cylinders, one-way flow control valves and a series of solenoid-operated valves and valve terminals. Festo’s new DSNUP series of pneumatic cylinders, for example, feature technopolymer end caps, stainless steel piston rods and aluminium barrels. Available with piston diameters of 16, 20 and 25mm, the DSNUP cylinders also feature ISO swivel mounting and threaded end and bearing caps. Festo has also introduced a compact cylinder with technopolymer end caps incorporating push-in tube fittings; known as the ADNP. The cylinders are suitable for simple automation tasks such as controlling gates and flaps, and for simple clamping and holding functions. Their high chemical resistance makes them suitable for food processing, packaging applications, and OEMs developing handling automation technology. Festo has also launched a series of technopolymer-based valves, which are available as individual components, as well as fully assembled and tested valve manifolds. The new VB12 valves feature a body moulded entirely from IXEF 1022 glass-filled polyamide. Complementing the existing 20mm wide bodied range, the valves accommodate air flow rates from 200 to 1000 litres per minute.
