Festo AG gathered an international contingent of editors to company headquarters in Esslingen-Berkheim near Stuttgart, Germany, on Oct. 22-13 for a briefing on the company's latest news.

Most of Festo's presentations discussed handling systems and assembly. The handling systems have applicability in packaging equipment, where moving and palletizing functions are important. New product entries such as the proportional piezo gripping tool that conserves space while saving energy were also introduced.
