SMC Valves

SMC valves

SMC valves are unsurpassed in quality, performance and range. They offer valves of every application with port sizes ranging from M3 to 2", manifoldable either on bar stock or stackable, with numerous integrated wiring options. They offer very low power consumption, very high flows, quick response and clean aesthetic designs. SMC valves are used extensively in the Semi Conductor Industry, Automotive, Packaging, Medical, specialty machine and machine tool. We have a valve series that will accommodate your most demanding applications.

SMC actuators

SMC actuators offer the most innovative designs in the industry. Specified in all major industrial markets, they are created to provide you with a large array of choices. Actuators are available in a wide variety of styles, including linear, guided, rotary, gripper, specialty and for use with pneumatic, hydraulic and electric, each series comes with a full complement of standards. 3 Slides

FRL image SMC’s air preparation (FRL) products offer a wide variety of filter, regulator, and lubricator combination units as well as ambient dryers, booster regulators, mist separators, and a wide range of accessories.

Vacuum Switch SMC offers a selection of electronic controls including electronic regulators, pressure switches, and vacuum switches.

Tubing & Fittings SMC fittings incorporate a positive tube seal while the fitting is under pressure which allows polyurethane tubing to be used. Tubing is available in sizes of 1/8", 5/32", 3/16", 1/4", 5/16", 3/8", and 1/2". Metric tubing sizes of 3.2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 16mm are available.

IDK Moisture Control Tube

IDK moisture control tubing from SMC is an economical solution that can be quickly added where needed to remove moisture to protect expensive grippers and other actuators while adding little additional weight (<16g).

IDK Tubing

  • Available in tubing sizes of 2mm, 4mm, and 6mm sizes
  • Grippers and small, short stroke actuators are especially suited for IDK product applications
  • If small actuators are continuously operated at high frequency, condensation may be generated even with dehumidified air, due to the characteristics of the system
  • Lengths of 100mm and 200mm available, with KQ2 and KJ fittings integrated for easy installation

SMC’s New SY Valve offers flexibililty, reliability

SY Valves
Improved performance and throughput

The SY Series have the same valve width as their predecessors, but the flow has been increased by up to 80%, allowing the valve size to be reduced.

The New Standard in Pneumatic Actuators


Improving on the previous design, the new CQ2 pneumatic actuator is available in 15 bore sizes from 12mm to 200mm. The new CQ2 is a weight reduction of 5% to 13% over the old design without sacrificing body strength.

CQ2*S – High side load option

CQ2*R – Water resistant

CQ2*P – Axial porting

CQ2*K – Non-rotating

CQ2*XC35 – For weld environments

CBQ2 – With built-in end-of stroke locking mechanism

The new CQ2 is available in 6 different mounting options for application flexibility. Position sensors can be mounted on all four sides for easy assembly and labor savings.
