SMC Vacuum Products
Generators – SMC Vacuum Generators use compressed air to generate vacuum using a venturi. Vacuum levels down to -25 inHG (-85kPa) is obtained from single and multi stage units with suction flow greater than 7 SCFM (200 l/min.) SMC’s air vacuum generators can be connected via a manifold or used individually. These compact devices can also be customized to integrate suction filters, vacuum sensor switches, and supply/release valves onto the generator. Additionally, SMC’s generators can be configured to manage distribution of vacuum from a external vacuum source.
Vacuum Pads – SMC vacuum cups are designed in a range of 19 diameters from 2mm to 200mm for use in delicate or heavy applications. SMC vacuum cups are available to fit many unusual shapes and are constructed from a variety of premium materials such as Silicon, NBR, Urethane, Fluorine etc. Installation options can be specified on either spring loaded buffers or threaded stems. Special application cups are also available such as check valve, porous material, annulus area etc.
Switches – SMC vacuum sensor switches provide a completely integrated, digital solution designed to monitor vacuum status. Vacuum sensor and switch outputs are integrated into ultra-compact, lightweight units. Easy push button calibration eliminates the need for tools. Available in either easy-to-read LCD with backlit or LED readouts which display current measured value as well as set points and output mode information. Vacuum sensor switch outputs are digital NPN or PNP and analog, with simple programming and multiple application features such as failure prediction and window comparator. Vacuum sensor switches can be integrated directly onto many vacuum generators.
Vacuum Regulators – SMC vacuum regulator products offer a variety of options including compact and lightweight design, and front or rear mounting of the vacuum pressure gauge. These vacuum regulators also offer standard panel mounting capability, adjustment resolution within 0.13kPa, and 1/8″ to 1/2″ threaded connection port sizes available.
Vacuum Filters – Air suction filters that prevent trouble in vacuum equipment caused by contaminants in the air. They are light weight and compact. Filter elements are easily replaced without tools.
