Festo Multi-Axis System offers up to an additional four axes of motion, including linear transfer.

Festo showcased its UR+ certified multi-axis solution for Universal Robots (UR) at Automate 2023. The UR/Festo system adds up to four additional axes of motion beyond the UR cobot’s six axes. The system features the Festo Motion Control Package (FMCP-UR), which is a complete motion control panel for up to four axes motion. The FMCP is also certified to integrated with the UR cobot control panel and HMI and features an enhanced safety I/O handshake and communications interface. The FMCP-UR can control turn tables, gantry systems, conveyors, transfer tables and any combination of linear and rotary servo axes up to the 10th axis – all under the UR umbrella. The system’s Multi-Axis Drive (MAD) controller is a URCap software that allows users to set position, speed, and acceleration on the HMI or use the toolbar to jog the axes in manual mode to configure motion.
