Festo Pnuematics History

Festo History

Festo Pneumatics was formed in 1925 by Albert Fezer and GottlibStoll who started out manufacturing wood cutting tools at Festo and found a great need for Pneumatics and Factory Automation in the process - Festo Pneumatics was born.

Festo pneumatics is a German industrail control and Factory Automation company, Festo's head quarters are based in Esslingenam Germany. Festo is an engineering focused automation company that sells Festo pneumatics and Festo electric actuators primarily to the automation industry.

Pneumatic cylinders have been used since the 19th century, since the time of the industrial revolution at that time used widely in steam engines. Fabricated using a steel tube and tie rods, with the end caps forged from die cast steel, with a steel piston coated with a seal material.  Automation entrepreneurs of the day made their own designs of pneumatic cylinder  based around a the standard design of either single acting or double acting pneumatic cylinders.
