Process automation – for safety during ongoing operations
Together with and for its customers, Festo develops tailored automation solutions for the process industry – in all project phases from engineering to operation and maintenance. Process automation in the form of interdisciplinary technology combines automation and process engineering.
The process industry is involved, for example, with the transport, handling, treatment, purification, filling and waste disposal of fluids. Among other things, the term fluids covers liquids, gases or pourable solids – so-called bulk goods.
Numerous industries with the most diverse requirements
The segments of the process industry include, for example, biotech and pharmaceutical, water and sewage technology, chemical engineering, food and beverages, the oil and gas industry, mining process engineering, power generation and paper production.
This variety of segments places the widest range of requirements on the technologies, solutions and products, taking into account diverse technical specifications and regulations. In all these industries, it comes down to measuring, controlling and regulating fluid media in order to guarantee a smooth and reliable manufacturing process.
From the individual component to the customer-specific solution
The solutions offered by Festo range from process, analysis and solenoid valves as well as drives, sensors and control systems to ready-to-install systems and holistic automation concepts.
