Festo unveils video tutorials for its automation technology

Festo have unveiled a series of video tutorials for its automation technology on its “Festo Service” YouTube channel. Practical video tutorials explain how users can commission Festo products or carry out simple maintenance work themselves.

Users of electric and pneumatic automation technology from Festo can learn in just a few steps how to, for example, change a toothed belt on a linear axis or how to replace a set of wearing parts on a pneumatic drive, how to commission a valve terminal with bus system or how to assign functions for the Eplan project “Schematic Solution”.

These tutorials also include information on the degree of difficulty, the time involved, and the tools required along with illustrated comparisons that explain typical fault sources.

The videos are a complement to the Festo technical hotline. Ideally, users should have a tablet or smartphone handy so that they can watch the correct sequence directly at the machine.
