What is the name of your product?
What problem does your product solve?
CPX-E is part of the Festo Automation platform. In this platform you are able to completely integrate electric axes and drives (servo drives plus servo or stepper motors) with 2 clicks only into your programming environment, and in a few minutes make it operate. CPX-E supports Industry 4.0 style modular production systems with autonomous cells, using decentralized intelligence. It offers Motion Control up to 32 interpolated axes. An OPC-UA server is integrated and the CPX-IOT gateway part of the family. Your data is in less than 3 min in the Festo cloud and offers the option to integrate AI (artificial intelligence: inside device/on edge, or in the cloud as a Festo solution package).
What is the product’s main benefit for the customer?
- reduce engineering time by up to 70%
- Plug-and-Work design avoids many potential sources of errors
- Quickest, patented cloud connection
In short: Faster. Better. Connected.
Why would you call your product “intelligent”?
CPX-E gives all Festo customers as a USP a seamless connectivity from the workpiece up to the cloud. It allows decentralized automation of a mechatronic sub system and is prepared to add Festo AI algos.
Are there any other important points that you can think of?
On the Festo booth at Hannover fair you can see an Industry 4.0 style modular production machine using CPX-E for decentralized automation per cell and cloud connectivity.
