Festo Motion Terminal enables positioning using pneumatics

The Festo Motion Terminal VTEM, the world’s first valve to be controlled by apps has opened radical new dimensions in the world of automation thanks to its intelligent fusion of mechanics, electronics and software. Combining digitalisation and pneumatics, the Motion Terminal is the first product to earn the label “Digitised Pneumatics”. This product is moving pneumatics into the age of Industry 4.0 with apps that can replace over 50 individual components.

Our Motion Apps allow you to integrate a huge range of functions that can be changed at the push of a button without changing the hardware. This enables you to produce customised consumer goods more economically and easily – even for individual batches. From simple valve functions to Soft Stop and proportional pneumatics, VTEM covers all the pneumatic functions you need for your production.

The Festo Motion Terminal uses an integrated concept to ensure energy-efficient operation. In addition to apps for saving energy, low-energy piezo valves have been developed for controlling the main valve stages. These reduce the power consumption for the pilot control by up to 90%. This product addresses all the customer needs for a dependable, flexible and adaptable communication system.
