Festo has introduced an online 3D CAD Configurator for pneumatic actuators and associated accessories such as fittings, lengths of tubing, and sensors.

Once the actuator is selected from a choice of either cylinder, drive with guides, or semi-rotary drive, the engineer simply clicks on accessory hot spots to identify and select each accessory.

The Festo configurator ensures compatibility between actuator and accessory and eliminates any possible type of error code, the company says.

A 3D CAD file of the actuator assembly is read for download at the end of the configurator’s streamlined design process.

Actuators and accessories are shipped in a one-bag kit with a single unique Festo ID number covering all components in the kit.
