Technology Engineering Center
The USA is at the forefront of the global life science market. This is where most industry-relevant innovations and new technologies emerge. In order to participate in these developments at an early stage, Festo began setting up a Technical Engineering Center (TEC) in Boston at the end of 2017.
The aim of the newly opened TEC Boston is to develop innovative products together with renowned medical and laboratory equipment manufacturers in the immediate vicinity. TEC Boston focuses on the development of new technologies for components and systems for handling liquids such as pipetting, aspiration and dispensing. The industry's demands on these processes are high throughput, reproducible and accurate results at low cost. The automation specialist Festo has a great deal of expert knowledge from its many years of experience in the manufacturing industry, which it now also offers for laboratory automation.
