The Festo Automation Experience (Festo AX) offers you easy-to-use software modules for monitoring components, machines and systems. This transformation to maintenance based on data is another step towards more efficient and optimised production.
Create a self-optimising system for your production!
The unexpected failure of actuators leads to machine downtimes, reducing plant availability and resulting in missed production targets. Festo AX continuously monitors pneumatic actuators during operation and gives you an early warning so that you have enough time to plan maintenance. Depending on the cause, failures can be predicted between 30 hours and 14 days before they actually occur!
By classifying errors, valuable information is provided about where they occurred and what caused them. Was it a leak in the compressed air supply or does it indicate wear on seals or bearings? In other words: what corrective actions are required?
These diagnostics can be aggregated from data gathered from the component level to the plant level so that you have an overview of the status of all your production assets.
With Festo AX, service and maintenance processes are fully integrated and service or maintenance tasks are automatically created before breakdowns occur.
The digital maintenance manager Smartenance with its integrated incident management is a perfect addition to Festo AX.
Festo AX offers each target group information that is specific and relevant to them. We use AI and machine learning to do this ‘behind the scenes’ so the user doesn’t require expert knowledge in these areas.
Notifications can be personalised and relevant information sent to different recipients, e.g. by e-mail as and when they require it.
As the pace in production is hectic, all relevant information must be presented in a timely fashion, clearly and precisely. What’s more, the asset browser in Festo AX enables the monitoring and visualisation of a large number of assets, providing clear overviews and is the starting point for more in-depth analyses, should that be needed.
Festo AX operates optimally with our components which are used in many machines and plants. However, the application is open to integration with third-party components and machines by adopting common protocols such as OPC-UA and many others.
We provide you with support regardless of your preferred runtime environment. Thanks to its open interfaces and connectivity adapters, Festo AX is easy to integrate into existing infrastructures. Flexible operation is possible by using container, docker technology.
Festo is with you all the way, from components to software solutions, on edge or in the cloud.
