Directional Control Valve

Directional Control Valve

SMC has improved product performance and reliability with the redesigned SY series valve, offering major advances in valve performance for cost-effective solutions.  The series offers high flow with low power consumption in a compact, clean aesthetic design.  It is available in body ported or base mounted styles and can be used individually or manifold mounted.  The SY5000 has the same valve width as it predecessors, but the flow has been increased by up to 80%, allowing for reduced valve size.  A built-in strainer in the pillot valve prevents trouble caused by foreign matter.  By using H-NBR seal material for the main valve and seals, Ozone resistance has been improved.  Side, top and bottom port/pipe directions are available to allow flexible installation. 

The 25A-SY series is designed using material compatible with secondary battery applications and able to be used in low dew point environments.  These variations eliminate copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) material where possible, making them compatible with secondary battery manufacturing for electronics, automotive, and other vehicle type.

 

Actuators

Actuators

Air cylinders and pneumatic actuators can support automation by enhancing productivity, increasing throughput, and improving worker safety.  The 25A- series variations are designed using materials compatible with secondary battery applications, and are able to be used in low dew point environments.  These actuators range from linear, guided, rodless, locking, clamp, and stopper styles, and are available with inch and metric dimensions, and as NFPA and ISO Standards.  The line also includes related products such as shock absorbers and joints, also compatible with secondary battery applications.

Rotary Actuators

Rotary Actuators

Rotary actuators come in two types: Rack & Pinion and Vane styles.  When the application calls for rotational motion less than one revolution, rotary cylinders can mount right at the equipment joint without taking up space with long stroke lengths, which would be required to do the same job with a linear cylinder.  SMC's pneumatic rotary actuator units can achieve arc lengths of  90°, 180°, 190°, or even 270°, depending on the configuration.

The 25A- series variations are designed using material compatible with secondary battery applications and are able to be used in low dew point environments.  The variations eliminate copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) material where possible, making them compatible with secondary battery manufacturing for electronics, automotive, and other vehicle types.

Vacuum Equipment

Vacuum Equipment

Vacuum generators and suction cups are integral to industrial automation pick and place systems as gripping solutions.  SMC's array of vacuum generators, also referred to as ejectors, have variations that include single ejector unit, manifold, inline, and generator/cup in one.  SMC suction cups are modular allowing for custom configuration of a multitude of sizes, shapes, materials, and mounting adapters.  Options include non-marking types, FDA compliant, varioius cup shapes, ball-joint connections, and buffers.

The 25A- series variations are designed using materials compliant with secondary battery applications and able to be used in low dew point environments.  Supporting products include vacuum filters, regulators, and vacuum sensors.  Standard products are copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) free.

 

Clean Air Filters

Clean Air Filters

Designed for convenient point of use drying without the need for electrical power, membrance dryers utilize hollow fiber membranes to remove water vapor from compressed air.  Permeable to water vapor but not air, the IDG series can achieve pressure dew points as low as -44°F (-42°C) and ISO8573-1 moisture classes from 2 to 6.  They have no moving parts, vibration, or heat discharge, and contribute only a small amount of purge air to their operating environment.  The IDG series is available as single units or convenienty assembled with necessary pre-filtration and optional pressure regulation.

The 25A- series variations are designed using material compatible with secondary battery applications and are able to be used in low dew point environments.  The variations eliminate copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) material where possible, making them compatible with secondary battery manufacturing for electronics, automotive, and other vehicle types.

Modular F.R.L/Pressure Control Equipment

Modular F.R.L/Pressure Control Equipment

SMC's air preparation (FRL) products offer a wide variety of filter, regulator, and lubricator units.  Combination units include air filter regulator, air filter regulator mist separator, as well as ambient dryers, booster regulators, precision regulators, mist separators, and a wide range of accessories.

Pressure regulators from SMC have been updated to the new urban white base color for a clean modern look.  The pressure drop across the regulator has been reduced to create a more efficient unit with a maximum set pressure of 100 psi.  The locking adjustment knob prevents accidental setting changes.  Options include a mounting bracket, and set nuts for panel mounting as well as pressure gauges.

The 25A- series variations are designed using material compatible with secondary battery applications and are able to be used in low dew point environments.  The variations eliminate copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) material where possible, making them compatible with secondary battery manufacturing for electronics, automotive, and other vehicle types.

Connectors

SMC one-touch tube fittings come in metric and inch size pneumatic fittings and are available in a wide variety of sizes, body styles and thread types.  The specially designed packing provides positive sealing under pressure without the reduced flow common with compression fittings.  SMC offers one-touch tube fittings in several special environments such as anti-static, flame resistant, clean room, DOT, and food service fittings.

The 25A- series variations are designed using material compatible with secondary battery applications and are able to be used in low dew point environments.  The variations eliminate copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) material where possible, making them compatible with secondary battery manufacturing for electronics, automotive, and other vehicle types.

Process Valve

Process Valve

SMC's 25A- Process Valve series feature air pilot/direct solenoid operated valves designed using materials compliant with secondary battery applications and are able to be used in low dew point environments.  Available body materials include resin, aluminum, brass, or stainless steel.

*Standard Products: Standard products are copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) free.

Electric Actuators

Electric Actuators

Electric linear actuators can push, pull, or transfer workloads differently than pneumatic actuators.  Pneumatic actuators rely on relatively crude devices such as rubber cushions or shock absorbers, pressure regulators, and flow restricting fittings at the port to control their motion.  By contrast, an electric actuator employs an electronically controlled motor and ballscrew to deliver a precise motion profile through acceleration, speed, and deceleration.  Further, the controller can integrate multiple "stop" positions along the actuator's stroke with high precision and repeatability.

The 25A- series variations are compatible with secondary battery manufacturing for electronics automotive, and other vehicle types.  Design goals include eliminating copper (Cu) and Zinc (Zn) material where possible and employing a low dew point grease that retains lubricity even in low manufacturing temperatures.  Please note that copper and zinc materials are used for the motors, cables, controllers and drivers.
