Featured Products for Powertrain Assembly
Powertrain machining and assembly requires the convergence of many automation technologies. SMC’s broad selection of pneumatic and electric actuators achieves the precision and reliability necessary for these critical applications. Featured products include the heavy duty MGP series, C95N tie-rod locking cylinder, and a comprehensive line of linear electric actuators. The SY7000 5-port solenoid valve is now available, offering a high flow in a small footprint. With common wiring and multiple porting options, this valve series offers both design flexibility and simple installation, providing you with the highest value.
MGP Guided Cylinder
Series MGP is designed for high side load applications found in material handling, lifting and stopping. The cylinder utilizes an ultra-compact design by incorporating the cylinder body as part of the guide body. As the stroke length increases, so does the bearing length, thus enhancing the cylinder's load bearing capacity. Order made options for this series include adjustable air cushions, heavy duty guide rods, copper free, high temperature, and low speed.
C95N ISO Locking Cylinder
The C95N is a locking ISO, VDMA24562 interchangeable, and utilizes a tie rod construction. In addition to standard cushions, wear band, and is locking, the C95N utilizes a "floating" cushion seal design that greatly improves operation.
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.
SY 5-Port Solenoid Valve
SMC has improved product performance and reliability with the redesigned SY series valve. The SY3000 and SY5000 have the same valve width as their predecessors, but the flow has been increased by up to 80%, allowing the valve size to be reduced. A built-in strainer in the pilot valve prevents trouble caused by foreign matter. By using H-NBR seal material for the main valve and seals, Ozone resistance has been improved. Side, top and bottom port/pipe directions are available to allow flexible installation. The SY is available in body ported or base mounted styles, and can be used individually or manifold mounted.
