The Festo Assured Shipping Time (FAST) program from Festo Corp., Hauppauge, N.Y., now guarantees that products will be shipped on the same day the order is placed, or by the third day, depending on the type of product selected. Thousands of Festo pneumatic components are covered by the FAST program, which aims to lower customer inventory costs and shorten time to market for prototypes and production machines.

The online FAST program catalog lists all eligible products and respective shipping times. Same day shipment is typical for standard components, including:

  • Pneumatic cylinders and actuators
  • Pneumatic valves
  • Sensors
  • Air preparation units
  • Fittings/flow controls/tubing/silencers
Three-day shipping is offered for the program’s custom-length cylinders and actuators, combination air preparation units, and valve manifolds. As long as orders are received by 12 p.m. EST, next day delivery is available. What's more, Festo guarantees “on time or it’s shipped free” reimbursement of shipping charges for qualified FAST program orders.

Festo’s online shop also provides additional services to lower costs and improve productivity. Once registered, visitors can download 2D and 3D CAD models of components, view pricing and availability, place orders, and track order status.
