Customer Solutions

Application specific

The complete range of Festo products is applicable for both factory and process automation. In circumstances, where customers have special requirements with regards to size, dimension, functionality, etc. We will adapt and develop the product to meet customer’s requirements, be it modification of any available product or new design.

Prepacked convenience

Inventory management could be a challenge for machine builders who have to deal with numerous components throughout the manufacturing process, regardless of stock handling while maintaining the cost – consumption and replenishment, retrieving components required from the warehouse, etc. The pre-packed convenience of Festo is the answer to your inventory management as it allows you to select the necessary components for one machine assembly, which is then packed in one package and delivered as a single order.

Page 16 | Festo Pte. Ltd.

Ready-to-install assembly

Assembling your components to one module and then testing it by yourself can be cumbersome and the tendency of selecting incompatible component can take place. With the ready-to-install assembly, all you need is one order number and the ready-to-install assembly will be delivered and this will reduce cost, time and increase reliability & efficiency.

Automation solution

The ability to offer product alone is no longer sufficient in today’s competitive environment, customers prefer a synergy with business partners who have the capability to provide automation solutions. With engineering expertise in designing and building customer specified solutions and the combination of product and technical know-how, Festo has the capacity to demonstrate its automation solutions in the field of engineering control systems, handling units and fully integrated control solutions.
