Hauppage, NY December 11, 2012


The Festo Assured Shipping Time (FAST) program ensures that products will be shipped on the same day the order is placed or by the third day, depending on the type of product selected. Thousands of Festo pneumatic components are covered by the FAST program. This innovative program lowers customer inventory costs and shortens time to market for prototypes and production machines.

The online FAST program catalog lists all eligible products and respective one or three day ship times. Same day shipment is typical for standard components, including:

*Pneumatic cylinders and actuators

*Pneumatic valves

*Sensors

*Air preparation units

*Fittings/flow controls/tubing/silencers

Three day shipping is offered for the program's custom length cylinders and actuators, combination air preparation units, and valve manifolds.

Orders must be received by 12 p.m. Eastern and next day delivery is available. Festo guarantees "on time or it's shipped free" reimbursement of shipping charges for qualified FAST program orders. Guarantee details can be found in the FAST catalog and on the FAST webpage.

Festo's online shop provides additional services to lower costs and improve productivity. Once registered, visitors can download 2D and 3D CAD models of components, view pricing and availability, place orders, and track order status.

"It's widely recognized that Festo electric and pneumatic motion systems are among the highest quality and performance in the world," said Richard Huss, Festo CEO. "More is needed today, however, for lowest total cost of ownership and these services include world class training, technical, and logistics support. Festo earns trusted supplier status through superior product engineering, support, and other essential services."

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
