“We are continually reviewing how we can make it as easy as possible for our customers to work with us,” says Steve Sands, product manager at Festo. “We are redesigning and reengineering our core products to deliver improved affordability and easy online ordering, with global next-day availability, while also ensuring the range can meet 80% of automation technology customer demands.
“At the same time, Festo’s usual high standards of service and support also apply to these blue star products. When ordering from the core product range, users can still access the software and engineering tools for selection and sizing, engineering design, ordering, commissioning and after sales to optimise their machines and systems.”
There are more than 2,200 blue star core products for pneumatics including cylinders, valves, regulators, sensors and accessories, as well as products that meet the specific requirements of process automation. These include solenoid, NAMUR and angle seat valves, positioners, sensor boxes, ball valves and ball valve actuator units, products for air preparation and accessories.
