Weld Process Equipment Products
Welding cells are a tough environment. Heat, weld spatter, high magnetic fields and dust can cause problems with pneumatic components. SMC has created an extensive line of pneumatic components that are well suited for welding environments.
Pneumatic Clamp Cylinders
CKQ Pin Clamp Cylinders
SMC's pin clamp cylinder series C(L)KQ series was designed with 4 body types for a broad range of installation conditions. There are 55 types of guide pins available and an optional locking mechanism. C(L)KQ series has positioning and clamping at one time. Precision adjustment of clamping height is possible by choosing the with-shim type. Adjustment range: 0.5 to 3mm.
MK Rotary Clamp Cylinder
SMC's MK-Z is a rotary clamp cylilnder that has a high allowable moment of inertia. The typical application for the MK-Z is to hold parts during a welding application. A short overall length means that the MK-Z series is versatile in mounting. Auto switches can be mounted on any of the 4 surfaces with no projection of the switch.
CKZ3N NAAMS Power Clamp
CKZ3N power clamp conforms to the NAAMS standard. The improved design reduced weight by up to 39% with aluminum body. The rounded cover design and release button with minimal protrusion, reduce weld spatter accumulation. The arm opening angle range from 15° to 135° and can be easily changed by replacing the stopper body. Available in 50 and 63 bore sizes.
CKZ3T Power Clamp
Power clamp cylinder series CKZ3T-X2734, was designed with metal switch cassette cover with reconfiguration for simple switch adjustment. Similar to the CKZ3T, the arm opening angle can be easily changed by replacing the stopper bolt.
CK-Z Clamp Cylinders
The CK1-Z series is a clamp cylinder available in two styles of clevis widths (16.5mm, 19.5mm). It is a non-lube, compact, lightweight cylinder with a built-in speed controller. The CK1-Z is available in 3 bore sizes with stroke lengths up to 150mm. Options include easy speed adjustments, rod attachments and auto switch capabilities.
WRF Frame Clamp Cylinders
The W-R1 and W-R3 pallet lock cylinder offers post stoppage positioning and locking of carriers, line pallets, cars, and more. The design's wide arm opening angle prevents contact with the workpiece. The integration of the clamping unit and cylinder unit reduces design and assembly labor
CKZP Shot Pin Cylinder
Shot pin cylinder series CKZP is designed for both high precision and positioning repeatability. Also known as a locating pin cylinder, the configurations for the CKZP include bore sizes equivalent to 57mm and 71mm with strokes of either 25mm or 50mm. The proximity switch sensor and port thread type can also be selected. Widely used in automotive applications, the mounting is based on NAAMS standard (71mm bore)
CQ2 Standard Cylinders
The CQ2 weld spatter resistant compact cylinder is an option of the world's best selling pneumatic cylinder and can be supported globally. The CQ2-XC88/XC89/XC91 is available in 6 bore sizes from 32mm to 100mm. It comes standard with male or female piston rod threads. For mounting flexibility, it is possible to mount auto switches on any of the 4 surfaces.
CA2 Tie Rod Cylinders
The weld spatter resistant CA2-XC88/XC89/XC91 series is an option of the standard, light weight tie rod air cylinder. Fine end of stroke cushioning adjustment is now possible due to the increase in the air cushion adjustment range. The CA2 can be ordered with rod end or rear pivot brackets. A variety of auto switches are available for mounting, including compact switches and magnetic field resistant switches. The CA2 is available in 40, 50, 63, 80 and 100 bores sizes, and is RoHS compliant.
MB Tie Rod Cylinders
The weld spatter resistant MB-XC88/XC89/XC91 series is a light weight, medium duty tie rod cylinder. Available bore sizes range from 32mm to 100mm. The standard air cushion utilizes a floating cushion seal to eliminate piston rod bouncing.
MGP Guided Cylinders
The MGP-XC88/XC89/XC91 is designed for high side load applications found in material handling, lifting and stopping in welding environments. The cylinder utilizes an ultra-compact design by incorporating the cylinder body as part of the guide body.
MK2T Rotary Clamp Cylinders
Combining weld spatter resistance, compact cylinder size and rotational capability, the MK2T-XC88/XC89/XC91 cylinder is designed for heavy duty clamping applications, with an available integrated arm that swings out of the way when the cylinder is extended. 90deg. clockwise or counter clockwise rotation is available, and clamping arms with adjustment screw are standard options.
CKG1 Clamp Cylinders
The CKG1-XC88/XC89/XC91 series is a clamp cylinder available in two styles of clevis widths (16.5mm, 19.5mm). It is a non-lube, compact, lightweight cylinder with a built-in speed controller. The CKG1 is available in 3 bore sizes with stroke lengths up to 150mm. Options include easy speed adjustments, rod attachments and auto-switch capabilities.
Gas/Air Flow Management
Gas/Air Switching Valve
Service life can be extended by blowing the air to cool the tip after arc welding. This unit is an energy savings valve with a 0.5W power consumption. Designed to be space saving and compact.
PFM7 Digital Flow Switch
SMC's PFM dual color digital flow switch was developed initially to detect microchip component adsorption in vacuum, and early clogging in both filter and nozzle applications. The series is incredibly compact and lightweight compared to existing flow sensors. The PFM is available in four maximum flow rate options 10, 25, 50 and 100 L/min, and is suitable for use with air, nitrogen, argon or carbon dioxide.
ISE20A Digital Pressure Switch
ISE20A is a digital pressure sensor with an informative, easy to read 3 screen, 3 color display. The main screen shows the instantaneous reading in red or green, while two sub-screens can display the setting label and its numeric value in orange. Compared to the ISE20, the ISE20A adds a 2nd switch output, as well as an analog voltage or current output. The switch output responds within 1.5ms once the set pressure value is reached. Response time can be adjusted to reduce chattering. ISE20A is UL/CSA, CE and RoHS compliant, with an IP40 enclosure rating.
Series TRTU flame resistance three-layer tubing is suitable for air and water piping in environments where sparks from arc welders, etc., may be a problem. The three-layer design uses a flame resistant polyolefin (equivalent to UL-94 Standard V-0) for the outer area. The TRTU series is available in a variety of colors and sizes and is RoHS compliant.
