SMC Corporation Exhibits at FabTech in Chicago


SMC Corporation of America will exhibit at Fabtech, North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event at McCormick Place in Chicago, September 11-14.

Visit SMC in the North Building, Hall B in the Welding, Robotics and Industrial Automation section at Booth B13027 for a hands-on experience with the latest innovations in automation equipment and end-of-arm tooling for collaborative robots (cobots) as well as for bending & forming, cutting, fastening & joining, finishing/paint & powder coating, plate & structural fabricating, roll forming, and tool & die machines.

SMC will feature its industry-leading, innovative Air Management System (AMS) technology which monitors and measures pressure, air flow and temperature to provide the optimal supply of air pressure and volume for efficient process control to reduce demand on air compressors during machine operation and the functionality to throttle down to idle mode for nonoperating cycles.
