Farnell is now stocking a wide range of pneumatic and electrical automation products from Festo for global delivery.

Farnell provides access to the full range of Festo products, greatly expanding its pneumatics range and industrial automation and control portfolio. 2,500 Festo’s SKUs are available to customers globally and an additional 19,000 Festo SKUs are available in EMEA with short lead times to make sure you get your desired product as soon as possible.

Festo’s products complement components from other suppliers already stocked by Farnell. Customers now have greater flexibility in system design and build, as well as facilitating critical maintenance and equipment repairs.

Some of Festo’s high-quality pneumatic products now available from Farnell include:

The Mini Slide (DGST), the compact pneumatic slide actuator features an integrated shock absorber, sensor holders and end-of-stroke cushioning. Typical applications include electronics, light assembly, machine building and handling technology.

The ISO Cylinder (DSBC) meets ISO 15552 and has a wide range of mounting options. In an industry-standard profile with two sensor slots, it has self-adjusting pneumatic end-position cushioning that adapts to changes in load and speed and a magnetic piston for position sensing.

The short-stroke Compact Cylinder (ADN) meets ISO 21287 and requires up to 50% less installation space than comparable products. Features include a piston rod with internal or external thread and a magnetic piston for position sensing.

The low-cost, sturdy, and durable Solenoid Valve (VUVS) can be used individually or on manifold bases. A reliable, robust component that offers a long service life, ergonomic design, and safe operation.

Simon Meadmore, VP Product & Supplier Management at Farnell said: “We are delighted to now stock Festo products for delivery to Farnell customers around the world. As a distributor with a strong supplier network, our partnership with Festo allows Farnell customers to complete critical maintenance and repairs with reduced equipment or factory downtime.”
