Actuators

Pneumatic and electrical actuators which provide solutions to all forms of linear, rotary, gripping and compound applications. Actuators are available from 2.5mm bore up to 300mm bore as standard, while combination units and specialised products are readily available. Our product range includes standard pneumatic cylinders for basic applications through to high rigidity precision guided actuators as well as stroke reading and high accuracy incremental stopping cylinders. The electrical actuator series includes precision servomotor and stepper motor control products.
In addition, basic linear movements similar to a pneumatic cylinder, but with no need for compressed air, are provided by the electric cylinder and e-Rodless series of electric actuator.

Standard Linear Actuators

Standard Linear Actuators
The standard range of SMC Linear Actuators provides a wide variety of sizes and styles, from 2.5mm up to 300mm diameter and conforming to a number of International Standards such as VDMA, ISO and NFPA. These actuators are used for straight line movement in a single or double acting manner, with options for through-rod or non-rotat...

Compact Actuators

Compact Actuators
Compact Actuators perform the same function as standard actuators while providing a reduction in the amount of space needed for the cylinder body. These actuators are generally direct mounted, and have a number of mounting options. They are available in single or double acting with standard through rod or non-rotating shafts. ...

Guided Actuators

Guided Actuators
The SMC range of Guided Actuators is suitable for manufacturing processes requiring high rigidity and high precision, providing non-rotating function, high load performance and stability. SMC offers slide table, guided rodless, dual rod, high precision and heavy duty models. ...

Rodless Actuators

Rodless Actuators
In the Rodless range of actuators, the piston is mechanically or magnetically coupled to an external slide table, which in turn provides the linear motion and force. No piston rod is used which means that the risk of rod buckling is eliminated and uneven seal wear and side loading on the shaft is reduced. The lack of piston rod re...

Actuators With Lock

Actuators With Lock
Many of the actuators in the SMC product range are also produced with rod locking mechanisms as standard products. The lock mechanism clamps the rod thereby preventing any further movement, until the lock is released. The braking action is effective even if the cylinder has full pressure applied. These locking actuators can there...

Speciality Actuators

Speciality Actuators
When a task cannot be performed with a standard actuator, additional features are required such as smooth acceleration, deceleration low speed of movement or additional power (without an increase in cylinder size), suitable products for such applications can be researched in Speciality Actuator section, without the need for furthe...

Rotary Actuators

Rotary Actuators
SMC offers rack and pinion and vane types of Rotary Actuators, with a number of additional combinations such as compact style, rotary gripper and a linear/rotary combination actuator. Rotary actuators are suitable for applications requiring the rotation of a component (up to 360˚) and offer considerable space saving advantages com...

Air Gripper Actuators

Air Gripper Actuators
Air grippers are an essential component of any pick and place system. The comprehensive range of Air Grippers offered by SMC include parallel type, angular type and rotary type Grippers, with numerous choices of configuration, guides and sizes. The parallel type can be selected with two, three or four fingers for simultaneous gripp...

Electric Actuators

Electric Actuators
High precision positioning and repeatability define the SMC range of electric actuators. For the ultimate control of velocity, acceleration, deceleration and position, select a servomotor driven electric actuator such as the LJ1, LG1 or LTF actuator or for less demanding requirements a stepper motor actuator is recommended. Basic ...

Complementary products to the SMC range of Actuators include shock absorbers, floating joints and auto switches. Shock absorbers provide additional deceleration for high inertia loads, while floating joints reduce misalignment and side loading of actuators. For position detection and verification the SMC range of auto switches incl...

Semi-standard Products and Specials

Semi-standard Products and Specials
Further enhancements to SMC's range of actuators can be achieved by adding a semi-standard “-X” prefix to the actuator part number. Options such as high or low temperature, change of rod end shape, low speed and corrosion resistance specifications can be selected among many others. If a semi-standard actuator is still not suita...
