Picking up on this year’s theme “Integrated Industries, Creating Value”, Festo will be revealing an exciting new key technology aligned to the digitalisation of pneumatics. But this won’t be all: throughout the event Festo will be exploring Industry 4.0 related topics demonstrating developments linking pneumatics, electric and control in industrial automation and training, visualised through the latest Bionic and Future Concepts. The latest developments of superconductivity for specialist areas of automation will also be revealed, with Festo showing novel applications for contactless and frictionless drive technology. The Bionic Learning Network has continued its exploration of recent themes such as light weight, natural structures and how humans and machines can interact. Their displays are always fascinating and thought-provoking for the media and visitors at the show.
