Customised solutions: iCIM engineering service

Requirements analysis
Standard solutions might seem like a good value at first glance, but at Festo we focus on the long-term benefit for the customer. That's why a qualified requirements analysis is performed before each iCIM quotation. In this analysis, experienced project advisors discuss the expectations for the new training equipment with the customer and share insights from everyday use in order to avoid poor investments.

Consulting
On the basis of the requirements analysis, the customer receives expert advice about the suitable training equipment. Because Festo cooperates with a number of renowned partners, we will design the optimal solution for you. Festo is a Siemens Automation solution partner.

Engineering service
Festo's experienced technicians and engineers are specialists in planning and equipping learning systems and have at their disposal powerful, state-of-the-art tools. PLC and robot programming systems, simulation systems, EPLAN and CAD programs are effective tools for translating customer requirements into reality.

... to the completely module research platform.
iCIM is already used successfully in many universities and research facilities. Research topics such as the optimisation of chip-removal processes in the "CiP Process Learning Factory" at the Institute of Production Management, Technology and Machine Tools (PTW) of TU Darmstadt or human-machine cooperation in the "Cognitive Factory" at the Institute for Machine Tools and Industrial Management (iwb) at TU München can be demonstrated on iCIM solutions. Festo is driving new trends and ideas and would be happy to work with you professionally on your next research project.

iCIM research platform consisting of:

  • 1x double-belt transport system 1 x 8 m
  • 1x automatic warehouse with 50 stock locations
  • 2x Concept MILL 250 and Concept TURN 250 automated CNC machines, each with RV-4FL robot loading
  • 1x robot assembly cell with RV-4FL and vision system
  • 1x AGV driverless transport system
