Farnell fattens Festo offering for global delivery

Farnell is now stocking a wide range of pneumatic and electrical automation products from Festo for global delivery.

There are 2,500 Festo SKUs available globally and an additional 19,000 Festo SKUs available in EMEA with short lead-times.

 These products complement components from other suppliers already stocked by Farnell, and offer greater flexibility in system design and build, as well as facilitating critical maintenance and equipment repairs.

Some of Festo’s high quality pneumatic products now available from Farnell include:

  • The competitively priced Mini Slide (DGST). The most compact pneumatic slide actuator on the market features an integrated shock absorber, sensor holders and end of stroke cushioning. Typical applications include electronics, light assembly, machine building and handling technology.
  • The ISO Cylinder (DSBC) meets ISO 15552 and has a wide range of mounting options. In an industry standard profile with two sensor slots, it has self-adjusting pneumatic end-position cushioning that adapts to changes in load and speed, and a magnetic piston for position sensing.
  • The short stroke Compact Cylinder (ADN) meets ISO 21287 and requires up to 50 percent less installation space then comparable products. Features include a piston rod with internal or external thread and magnetic piston for position sensing.
  • The low-cost, sturdy and durable Solenoid Valve (VUVS) can be used individually or on manifold bases. A reliable, robust component that offers a long service life, ergonomic design and safe operation.

Simon Meadmore, VP Product & Supplier Management at Farnell said: “We are delighted to now stock Festo products for delivery to Farnell customers around the world. As a distributor with a strong supplier network, our partnership with Festo allows Farnell customers to complete critical maintenance and repairs with reduced equipment or factory downtime.”


Farnell provides specialist 24/5 technical support covering pneumatics, industrial automation and control technology. Customers also have access to free online resources, data sheets, application notes, videos and webinars on the Farnell website.
