Introducing Our Online 3D CAD Configurator for Actuators and Accessories
With our 3D computer-aided design (CAD) configurator for pneumatic actuators, you can lower your engineering and purchasing overhead and bring machines to market faster than ever.
This new online tool is intuitive and easy to use. Once you select your actuator — whether a cylinder, drive with guides or semi-rotary drive — simply click on accessory “hot spots” to identify and select accessories like fittings, tubing lengths and sensors. The configurator ensures the actuator and accessory are compatible, eliminating errors in type code.
The tool supports the most common CAD formats and generates a single file of the actuator and accessory assembly, simplifying the design process by eliminating multiple CAD files for various components. Once you select your actuator and accessories, ordering is a seamless process, as the tool links directly to the Festo online shop with pricing and shipping information, along with the bill of materials.
Components are shipped in a one-bag kit with a unique Festo identification number that covers everything in the kit, making reordering fast and easy.
Choose From Our Core Product Range
The configurator focuses on our in-stock and quick-ship core range of pneumatic actuators and accessories. Core products in the configurator’s database include:
- The design-award winning SDBT-MSX, which is the world’s first programmable proximity switch with automatic switching point setting for fast setup.
- The DGST pneumatic mini slide, one of the most compact units on the market. The slide and yoke plate are machined from a single piece of aluminum, ensuring low torsion and accurate alignment. Smaller, lighter parts like the DGST contribute to reduced footprint and more energy-efficient machines.
- Other compact offerings include the new ADN-S ultra-compact double-acting cylinder, which is 36 percent shorter and 20 percent lighter than similar actuators.
- Ideal for space-constrained applications, the DSNU-S round body metric cylinder is up to 40 percent slimmer, 35 millimeters shorter and 50 percent lighter than its ISO counterpart, the DSNU, and yet it has the same bore and stroke.
