With its feed separators, Festo provides handling technology solutions worldwide. The feed separators from Festo facilitate the feeding process of workpieces.
The feed separator series is used whenever a continuous flow of workpieces has to be separated (e.g. from a spiral conveyor or on a conveyor belt) and transferred separately to a downstream device. Depending on the workpiece to be separated, feed separators with one or two plungers can be used. The former can be used for general feed separation or purely as a stopper. The advantage of the feed separator series with two plungers is the mechanical synchronisation of the two fingers and the associated reduction of actuation to a single valve. They are used for small workpieces.
The plungers each offer mounting options for individual attachments, allowing the product to be perfectly adapted to the separating task. The space-saving solution of the sensor concept is another advantage of the feed separators from Festo: our proximity switches SME-8 and SMT-8 can be fitted as accessories directly in a sensor slot on the housing.
Pneumatic cylinders used to stop movements in machines or workpiece carriers on transport systems with or without cushioning. Stopper cylinders with cushioning can stop loads of up to approx. 800 kg on transport systems.
