ACTUATORS & GRIPPERS - SMC

  • SLIDE TABLE ACTUATORS

  • ROTARY ACTUATORS

  • AIR GRIPPERS

  • ELECTRIC ACTUATORS

  • GUIDED AIR CYLINDERS

Slide Tableimage

SMC guided actuators are utilized in applications that call for high rigidity and high accuracy. Typically, an air cylinder and a precision guide are required to meet these needs; however the MX series integrates the guide table and air cylinder into one precisely machined component. MXQ series endless track linear guide produces a table cylinder having excellent rigidity, linearity and non-rotating accuracy.

 

The MX series provides approximately twice the force output of a conventional cylinder through the engineering of a twin piston design.

 

Series: MXS, MXQ, MXH, MXH-Z, MXF, MXW, MXJ, MXP, MXY

Rotary Actuatorsimage

SMC manufactures both Rack and Pinion and Vane style pneumatic rotary actuator products. Combination rotary models combine compact linear cylinders and rotational capability. Combinations are also available that include rotary gripper capabilities. 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. SMC offers both electric and pneumatic rotary actuator products.

 

Series: MSU, CRB1, MSQ, NCRQ, NCRA1, MK-Z, MRQ, MHRQ

Air Grippersimage

SMC offers one of the most extensive lines of pneumatic grippers (air grippers) in the industry today. The series include pneumatic rotary grippers, two, three and four finger parallel styles that are ideal for gripping and centering; a wide opening parallel model, designed to accommodate many different sized parts; a heavy duty style, suitable for a wide range of applications; an angular model, speed adjustment built in; a toggle to give reliable gripping support; a low-contamination style, equipped with a protective boot; and electric models.

 

 

Series: MHZ, MHK, MHL, MHR, MHS, MHQ, MHF, MHC, MHY, MHW, MHT, MHRQ

Electric Actuatorsimage

Electric actuators offer distinct advantages over their pneumatic counterparts. Acceleration and speed are controlled and predictable. Multiple positions are possible with high precision and repeatability. Pushing forces can be programmed. With no need for compressed air, infrastructure and energy costs are lower. LE is SMC's current line of electric actuators, designed with a focus on easy setup and operation. Function parameters come preset, plus an "Easy Mode" setting option allows you to be operational quickly. The LE line is available in a variety of types including: sliders, rod and guided rod, slide tables, rotary, grippers, and miniature. Accessories include actuator controllers, and gateways.

 

Series: LEFS, LEFB, LEY, LES, LEH, LER, LEP, LEL, LEM, LEC

Guided Air Cylindersimage

Guided cylinders utilize guide rods mounted parallel to the piston rod to provide stable, non-rotating, high side load performance. SMC offers dual rod, heavy duty and precision models. Like rodless cylinders, SMC guide rod cylinders reduce rod bending, piston bending and uneven seal wear. Low profile guided actuator series are available for restrictive space limitations.
