Bonded Manifolds for the Life Science sector

Festo takes over the technologies for Bonded Manifolds from Carville

Carville ceases operations in June 2024

Welcome to Festo! In the LifeTech sector, we offer easily integrated and innovative components and automation solutions for laboratory automation and medical technology. To further expand our solution portfolio for manufacturers of laboratory and medical devices, we are taking over Carville's process technologies and production facilities for the manufacture of multilayer manifolds made of plastics.
Carville will cease operations at the end of June 2024. Our production will start in the course of 2025.

Would you like to be informed about the start of production or do you have any questions? Leave us your contact details and our experts will be happy to take care of your request.

HADB technology for greater process reliability and efficiency in life sciences

Manifolds are important key products for the connection of components and the distribution of liquids and gases in fluidic systems.
Compared to conventional tubed or machined systems, they offer the possibility of significantly increasing integration density and process reliability.

The highly specialized HADB technology (High Accuracy Diffusion Bonding) enables the precise production of manifolds made of acrylic and Ultem and, thanks to the high geometric precision, also allows microfluidic applications to be implemented intelligently. 

Microfluidic solutions with channel plates and valves from a single source

HADB technology leads to competitive advantages, particularly in medical technology, diagnostics and the life sciences. By combining it, for example, with our media-separated valves from the VYKA, VYKB and VYKC series, Festo will be able to offer you microfluidic solutions from a single source in the future.

We look forward to working with you to develop precise, reliable and efficient solutions for your applications.
