Industrial automation specialist Festo has developed an online library of free video support tutorials to help engineers, namely those who work with their electric and pneumatic automation technology, tackle common service and maintenance tasks with confidence.

For example, users of Festo automation technology can see in just a few steps how to change a toothed belt on a linear axis; how to easily replace wearing parts on a pneumatic drive; how to commission a field bus valve terminal; or assign functions for an Eplan project. Users no longer have to pore over pages of operating instructions to find help – they can just click, watch and do.

Included within each tutorial is information on the degree of difficulty, the time involved, and the tools required: along with illustrated examples of typical fault sources. The videos are the ideal complement to the Festo documentation and technical hotline.

Ideal for use on mobile devices such as a tablet or smartphone, they can be watched directly at the repair bench or at the machine. Taken together, they also provide a solid foundation for engineers wanting to explore more complex automation scenarios.

The online tutorial resource is being added to all the time, based on questions commonly raised with the Festo technical hotline team. A subscription to the YouTube channel "Festo Service" informs you about newly uploaded video tutorial. Take a look and subscribe to the channel at www.youtube.com/FestoService.
