Space Saving and Lightweight Products
SMC is leading automation manufacturing with innovative development of next generation products for the machines of tomorrow. The future of automation design is looking to not only make companies more efficient but looking at total cost of ownership including space constraints and energy costs. The next generation product development focuses on compact, lightweight, and energy efficient designs.
Series JCQ Compact Actuators are double acting, single rod, compact and lightweight.
Compact Round Body Cylinder
Series JCM double acting, single rod, stainless steel tube cylinders are compact, and lightweight. The JCM series delivers extra flexibiity including the option of male and female rods.
Compact Tie Rod Cylinder
Series JMB tie rod actuators are double acting, single rod, compact and lightweight. The JMB is available in intermediary bore sizes so that larger bores have the same external dimensions as standard bore sizes.
Miniature Free Mount Cylinder
The CUJ miniature free mount series is a space saving compact cylinder. It is available in 4mm to 10mm bore sizes with stroke lengths up to 20mm for double acting and 10mm for single acting. Options include auto switch capabilities, double and single acting, mounting from 4 directions.
Lightweight/Compact Floating Joint
Series JT is a light weight, compact floating joint with an aluminum case suitable for 20, 25, 32, and 40mm bore air cylinders. The JT compensates for any misalignment between the work piece and the air cylinder.
Guided and Rotary Actuators
Compact Guided Actuator
Series JMGP compact guided actuators are double acting, compact and lightweight. The JMGP is suitable for pushing, lifting or clamping applications.
Narrow Width Precision Slide Table
The MXH narrow width precision slide table incorporates recirculating bearings to its new linear guide system to increase rigidity by expanding the width where the load bearings come in contact with the linear guide. The new linear guide system also increases allowable pitch moment by 170%, yaw moment by 210% and roll moment by 240% as well as reduces its weight by as much as 19% from the previous model. Its narrow width footprint allows for multiple units to be mounted adjacently for applications with tight space constraints.
Precision Slide Table
The MXQ precision slide is ideal for applications requiring closely held parallelism and perpendicular specifications.
Miniature Precision Slide Table
The MXJ miniature precision slide table provides travelling parallelism of 0.005 mm in a compact package, height: 10 mm and width: 20mm for the 4 mm bore size. Its actuator body and guide block are made from Martensitic stainless steel for high rigidity and integrated to guide rails for isolating the load bearing from the movement of the piston rod and seals. The ports and switch grooves can be specified on either the right or left-side of the body, in a symmetrical location in order to minimize side clearance for adjacent mounting applications.
Rotary Actuator, Vane Type
Compact 4 & 5 Port Solenoid Plug In Type Valve
Plug-in type for JSY series is available in 3 valve body sizes, JSY1000 (6.4mm), JSY3000 (10mm) and JSY5000 (15mm). JSY plug-in type is compatible with fieldbus, ethernet and wireless communication module such as EX600 and EX260.
Compact 4 & 5 Port Solenoid Non Plug In Type Valve
Non plug-in type for JSY series is available in 3 valve body sizes, JSY1000 (6.4mm), JSY3000 (10mm) and JSY5000 (15mm). It is available in side porting and bottom porting. Non plug-in JSY is also available in dual 3-port configuration.
Vacuum Generator, Body Ported
Vacuum Generator series ZH offers a compact and light weight point-of-use generator with standard flow and large flow capability. There are two types available: box type with a silencer exhaust and body ported type with individual exhaust. Also, these generators are often smaller and lighter than the bulky vacuum lines used in central vacuum systems. Available in various nozzle diameters and a number of port sizes.
Vacuum Generator, In-Line
ZU*A series in-line vacuum generators combine design simplicity with high performance. Also, these generators are often smaller and lighter that the bulky vacuum lines used in central vacuum systems. The slim ZU*A generators are extra compact.
Compact Suction Cups
SMC's series ZP, ZP2 and ZP3 suction cups offer a complete line of cup options to meet all of your handling and transfer needs. A wide range of sizes, shapes and materials allow design engineers the flexibility to choose the appropriate pad configuration, making the ZP, ZP2, and ZP3 suitable for a variety of routine and unusual lifting applications.
Fittings and Flow Controls
Flow Controller, Compact
The JAS speed controller is designed for reduced installation height and features the convenient push-lock feature.
Flow Controller, One Touch Fitting, Push Lock
The AS speed controller variants with push lock allow for easy locking of the flow rate setting without a tool.
One Touch Fittings
KQ2 one-touch, metric and inch size fittings are available in a wide variety of sizes, body styles and thread types. The use of a special profile seal allows the KQ2 to be used for a wide range of pressures from a low vacuum up to a pressure of 1MPa. The KQ2 release collar releases both the chuck and collet to provide a low disconnection force for easy removal of the tubing.
