Festo is both a global player and an independent family business based in Esslingen am Neckar. Festo has been setting standards in both industrial automation technology and technical education since its beginnings, thereby contributing to the sustainable development of the environment, economy and society. The company supplies pneumatic and electrical automation technology for around 300,000 factory and process automation customers in more than 35 industries. Areas such as digitalization, AI and LifeTech with medical technology and laboratory automation are becoming increasingly important.

In the field of valve terminals, a combination of several pneumatic valves in a small space, Festo is now making life easier for many users with the successor to the three valve terminal classics CPV, MPA-L/S and VTUG. According to the manufacturer, the versatile VTUX valve terminal impresses with its high flow rate and almost limitless modularity. This makes the VTUX valve terminal suitable for almost any machine concept. The valve terminal modules can be arranged as required. The AP (Wireless Access Point) communication technology also makes connections over long distances child's play. This communication technology creates the conditions for safety designs, predictive maintenance and data exchange with the cloud in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT).

In addition, the plug-in connections of the VTUX can be adapted to the desired hose diameter. This achieves an optimum balance between space saving and supply reliability. Any number of pressure zones can also be defined. The lightweight design of the VTUX allows it to be used on the front-end unit, a gantry or robot arm. This enables short and efficient compressed air lines.
