SMC offers the widest range of products, engineered to meet applications in every sector of the market.
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 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.
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.
SMC offers a selection of electronic controls including electronic regulators, pressure switches, and vacuum switches.
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.
Process Gas Equipment
Regulators for Ultra High Purity (UHP) Series AP/SL/AZ
For UHP gas delivery in semiconductor and other clean industries. Body material: 316L SS secondary remelt or 316L SS. Electropolished wetted parts. Metal seal to atmosphere.
Regulators for General Applications Series AK
For wide variety of applications from semiconductor to general. Body material 316 SS or brass available depending on gas.
Back Pressure Regulators Series BP Fine adjustment control.
Regulator for High Pressure Applications Series KT
Self-relieving or non relieving available.
Piston sensing element.
Regulator for Air Operated Applications Series AP/AZ/AK
Actuation control pressure isolated from process gas by two seals. 100 psig (0.69 MPa) outlet pressure achievable with 80 psig (0.55 MPa) control pressure or less.
Diaphragm Valve for Ultra High Purity Series AP
For UHP gas delivery in semiconductor and other clean industries.
Shut off valve which uses a diaphragm for a moving element to open and close the valve. Springless diaphragm valves do not have a wetted spring.
Check Valve/Vacuum Generator Flow Switch
Check Valve To prevent reverse flow.
Unique design with only one moving part in the gas stream, an O-ring. It is a springless design, free of springs and poppets.
Monoblock vacuum venturi, diaphragm valve and check valve. Unique, compact, patented design.
It detects excess flow above a given flow rate, caused by pipe breakage etc.
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. The new design uses less aluminum which makes the new CQ2 more environmentally friendly by reducing CO2 discharge by 1300 tons.
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. The new CQ2 is easily the best choice for any pneumatic actuator needs.
Some of Our CQ2 Options That Help You Solve Unique Problems
The CQ2*S high side load option adds additional design elements for tougher applications.
The CQ2*R water resistant actuator includes a special rod wiper that greatly extends actuator life in wet environments.
The CQ2*P has axial porting for a very unique solution to space problems.
The CQ2K includes a non-rotating piston rod for anti-turn applications.
The CQ2-XC35 is perfect for weld environments. The addition of a rod scraper removes weld spatter that would otherwise contaminate the interior or the actuator.
If you need an actuator that will hold position in the event of a loss of air? The CBQ2 contains a built-in end of stoke locking mechanism.
IDK Moisture Control Tube
Small pneumatic actuators are excellent for end of arm tooling but are particularly susceptible to moisture problems. 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).
- 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
