Festo electrical axis are compact and space-saving handling systems. There are three main categories of these products: spindle axis, toothed belt axis and mini electric slides.
Festo’s solutions have been designed to interact perfectly mechanically and electrically in order to help you by simplifying and reducing design, assembly and commissioning.
Festo's broad portfolio of technology products for electric automation is the perfect solution for anyone looking for an electric alternative to linear and rotary motion and positioning operations without the complexity of commissioning processes associated with traditional electric drive systems.
Simplified functionality makes the drives ideal for simple movements between two mechanical end positions without having to sacrifice optimized movement features. In addition, the end position detection is already integrated and no external sensors are required.
Internal spindle with ball screw designed by Festo is precise and the rigid guide rail allows the high guide forces to be absorbed
The toothed belt axis is equipped with a covered toothed belt drive. This allows dynamic movement even with high loads. Also in this case, as for the spindle axis, the rigid precision guide allows to absorb high guide forces.
The applications of the spindle and toothed belt axes are: mounting systems, test and inspection systems, small parts handling, electronics industry and desktop applications. To avoid external contamination, Festo has introduced a magnetically fixed stainless steel cover band on these items, which allows the axis to have no openings.
It is also possible to combine electric axes of different sizes without the need for additional adapters. The smooth surfaces of the spindle and toothed belt axes are easy to clean and the elegant design allows them to be mounted in the visible area of the plant.
The mini slide, on the other hand, has features of both ball bearing guide and linear guide. Operation is quiet and spindle positioning is precise. The high load capacity combined with the excellent positioning accuracy allows the use in different applications. Think, for example, at these applications: assembly systems, testing and inspection systems, handling of small parts, electronics industry and desktop applications.
- Smooth surface with clean look design: easy to clean, less prone to contamination and attractive enough to be used in the visible area of the system
- Flexible motor mounting with numerous, freely selectable positions and the option to modify it at any time for an optimum machine design
- Pressure compensation connection on the mini slide with screwed-in sintered plate as standard
