SMC Pneumatics: Electrical Products
Including Electronic Pressure Regulators, Vacuum Flow Switches and Pressure Sensors
SMC provides multiple options for pneumatic solutions such as electronic regulators, pressure switches, flow switches, and vacuum flow switches.
SMC Pneumatics: Vacuum Generators, Vacuum Suction Cups, Vacuum Sensor Switches, and Vacuum Regulators from SMC
SMC vacuum products offer comprehensive options for vacuum applications. Compact, lightweight air vacuum generators are available in a wide range of sizes and performance ranges.
Vacuum regulator units, vacuum cups, vacuum buffers, vacuum sensor switches, fittings and vacuum instrumentation solutions allow the broadest utilization of technology and performance to meet your design specifications. Most options are modular allowing you to add only those that are relevant to your application. SMC vacuum cups are available in many different materials, sizes and shapes, and include options like stroke buffers to ensure that a perfect fit is made for each application. The diverse performance characteristics of SMC vacuum products allow utilization in a wide array of applications from manufacturing, packaging, assembly, to material handling. Precision combined with performance and a full line of accessories offers a comprehensive engineering solution to meet your specific need.
SMC Pneumatics: Air Dryers
Compressed air contains moisture (water vapor, droplets), oil, debris and other foreign matter. Filters and mist separators can be used to remove droplets, oil, debris and so on, but a dryer is necessary to remove water vapor.
SMC air dryers are insurance for down stream components, and in the long run, allow for sustainable performance/production for an end customer.
Temperature Control Equipment
SMC’s line of temperature control equipment utilizes best-in-class technologies to accomplish the exact temperature ranges and stability desired by our customers. Our chillers and thermo-control units have proven performance in a wide range of applications.
