Join industrial automation specialist Festo for their next interactive webinar on Thursday, 16th September, at 10am. Discover how you can easily save time, money and avoid errors by using their online configuration tool to effortlessly configure quarter-turn actuators with a ball or butterfly valve.

Why should you attend?

In 45 minutes, Stefany Galeano, chemical engineer, will reveal in a live demonstration how the tool can save valuable time for engineers with a real application.

You will learn how:

  • easy it is to configure a solution and get direct access to prices and delivery times.
  • you can easily get specific data sheets, CAD models and certifications for the complete units.
  • this tool is easy to use and speeds up the process from planning to purchasing.
  • a customised solution can be managed as simply as a standard product.

About the Process valve configurator

This new online configuration tool makes it easier and quicker to select the correct valve or actuator for your process application. Simply select a few parameters and the Festo valve configurator will suggest appropriate combinations, offering a fast, reliable and easy way for process engineers to source coordinated and ready-to-install solutions.

Commenting on the new valve configurator, Leon Kelly, Manager of the Process Automation Centre for Festo UK & Ireland, says: “Configuring the optimum process automation solution for your media is child’s play using the Festo online configurator. It simplifies the whole engineering and purchasing process and allows you to obtain the perfect valve unit in just a few clicks. It includes some really helpful features: for example, the configurator can generate a bill of materials to show the component breakdown. Also if you need a configuration ID for repeat orders, or a CAD model for your final configured solution, that’s not a problem – the configurator can produce those as well.”

The online valve configurator is ideal for selecting Festo butterfly valve units (KVZA), ball valve units (KVZB) and quarter turn actuator units (KDFP). It simplifies the specification and purchase process by ensuring that all components – from process valves, actuators, pilot valves and limit switch boxes to positioners, adapter kits and hand levers – are from a single source and are perfectly matched and pre-assembled. It is also possible to use the configurator to select an actuator unit without the process valve: ideal for automating existing process valves, or where there is a preference for a third party supply.

Following a step-by-step guide, the user simply chooses the required parameters in the configurator’s input menu. The configurator suggests the right solutions by taking all relevant factors into account: from the initial product search, configuration, sizing and documentation right through to ordering and delivery of the ready-to-install process valve or quarter turn actuator unit. The configurator can also accommodate unique customer-specific requests.

Together with the proposed solution, the configurator automatically generates an order ID for the complete combination, which can be used for placing future orders. There are also benefits in terms of documentation because the CAD data for the complete, configured unit can be downloaded. Immediate price and delivery time information also make the ordering process easier.

The online valve configurator is the latest solution from Festo designed to drive digitalisation forward and support customers as they enter the age of Industry 4.0. As an automation expert, Festo is combining its extensive knowledge of industrial applications with the latest developments in information technology to realise online applications for industrial automation best practice.

Festo is also using digital communication to support its customers throughout the Digital Customer Journey, guiding users safely and comprehensively through the Festo portfolio: from information procurement and configuration, through ordering and delivery, to commissioning and maintenance: as well as the technical training offered by Festo Didactic.
