The SMC connector line includes inch and metric one touch fittings, fitting manifolds, and pneumatic tubing available in multiple colors, sizes, and materials:
- Comprehensive line of inch or metric sized fittings, speed controllers, and tubing
- Includes clean room options and a broad set of specialized fitting and pneumatic tubing options
- Integrates one-touch fitting technology in both pneumatic fittings and speed controls
- Provides stainless steel fitting and brass fitting options
- Improves energy consumption, by providing lower pressure return stroke options
- Air cylinder speed control is critical to the longevity of your machine operation
The large collection of one-touch, quick connect fittings and connectors can be used in general applications or can be used in special environments. Various configuration types are available to optimize flow through a diverse range of systems including flame-resistance or anti-static applications.
Speed controllers have capability to adjust flow to applications with built-in options of integrated check valves, meter-in/meter-out dual flow control, accurate flow indicators and more. Tamper-proof abilities also ensure protected speed measures to the application.
Tubing comes in a variety of material types to accommodate for various media through the connectors. Some material types include: polyurethane, fluororesin, polyolefin, spark resistant, water resistant and polyethylene. Varying materials prevent corrosion, damage from high temperatures and hydrolysis.
Tubing is available in sizes of 1/8”, 5/32”, 3/16”, ¼”, 5/16”, 3/8” and ½”. Metric tubing sizes of 3.2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 16 mm are also available.
Manifolds save time and space with its compact and central push-to-connect tube connections. It reduces time required for connecting and difficult wiring of tubing from supply to applications. There are multiple styles to choose from and multi-tube size options are available.
Quick couplers series KK employ a unique construction that does not utilize steel balls or valve springs, so therefore does not restrict the flow path. They may be used with water or air, and have a sleeve lock mechanism to prevent accidental detachment.
Check valves block the flow of media in one direction while permitting flow in the other. The prevention of back flow can be an integral part of a circuit to maintain pressure, hold actuator position or to protect devices from reverse flow. Additionally, it can restrict potential contaminants from entering the upstream systems.
Connector accessories like the TK tube cutter, TG tube release tool or the TB tube stands makes for easy organization and can increase productivity of maintenance work.
