From stock, we offer SMC Series TU tubing. This represents a new high quality standard in metric size polyurethane tubing. Series TU tubing is available in 8 standard colours in rolls of 20 metres or 100 metres. Series TUH, hard polyurethane tubing is available on a short delivery in a standard or high pressure type. It is available in 4 colours in 20 or 100 metre rolls. TUS is a soft polyurethane tubing suitable for piping in confined spaces. It is extremely flexible and the maximum operating pressure is 0.6MPa at 20°C. Available in 8 colours in 20 or 100 metre rolls.
SMC offer a full range of pneumatic cylinders including standard ISO cylinders, compact cylinders and rodless cylinders. We offer expert advice on correct cylinder selection and energy saving controls.
The CP96 ISO profile body type cylinder is lightweight and can be adapted to your application. The new cushioning method of air cushion and bumper cushion means that cycle time is reduced and the bumper cushion reduces the metal noise that occurs when the piston stops at the end of the stroke. The CP96 range is available with bore sizes from 32 to 125mm and stroke size up to 2000mm.
The C85 ISO round body type cylinder conforms to ISO 6432 and CETOP RP52P. It is available with bore sizes (mm): 8, 10, 12, 16, 20 and 25mm. Standard strokes are up to 300mm. They are auto switch capable. The cylinder can be adapted to your application with up to 30 rod end modifications available.
Texam stock a wide range of cylinder accessories such as speed controllers and auto switches.
For high precision movement and control SMC supply a complete range of electric actuators and controllers. Our applications team offers expert technical advice on the selection and use of electric actuators.
Series LEY Rod Type Electric Actuator has a high output motor (100/200/400 W) and improved high speed transfer ability. Series LEY electric actuator has high acceleration/deceleration and is compatible (5000 mm/s2). Pulse input/CC-Link direct input/SSCNET III types. Available with internal absolute encoder, incremental encoder can also be selected. Positioning repeatability ±0.01 mm (High precision type). Control of intermediate positioning and pushing is possible and the motor mounting position is selectable. Available in bore size: 16, 25, 32, 40, max 500mm stroke. High output motor: 400 w and maximum speed: 1000 mm/s. It is dust and drip proof and is rated IP65 equivalent.
Series LEYG Guide Rod Type Electric Actuator has compact integrated guide rods offering lateral load resistance and high non-rotating accuracy. It is compatible with sliding bearing and ball bushing bearing. It has improved rigidity with the lateral end load: 5 times more. Non-rotating accuracy is also improved by using two guide rods. The seal connector prevents dust and water droplets from entering between the cable and motor cover and the aluminium cover protects the motor. A vent hole reduces internal pressure fluctuation to prevent dust and water droplets from entering. Easy set up to use straight away.
SMC Thermo Chillers offer precision temperature control supporting a variety of applications. The HRS series thermos chiller helps to monitor and control the temperature of heat generating devices. This re-circulating chiller is reliable, precise, compact, easy to install. With this chiller, cooling water can be obtained anywhere it is necessary. It is easy to install and operate. It works with a wide range of applications, such as laser machine tools, analytical equipment, LCD manufacturing equipment and mold temperature control. This thermo chiller is compact: W 377 x H 615 x D 500 mm, 40 kg (HRS012/018/024). The HRS series features a timer function and low liquid level protection. It has a power failure auto-restart function. It has an anti-freezing function and a self-diagnosis tool. The precision temperature control method which utilizes expansion valves and temperature sensors allow for the realization of a product with a high temperature stability of ±0.1 °C and a small-size tank.
Production of compressed air is expensive so it is essential to manage air flow as efficiently as possible. SMC are at the forefront of new technology and the development of smaller, highly efficient valves. The range of valves available is almost endless and extends from small manifold mounted valves to larger ISO type valves.
SMC Pneumatics solenoid valves Series VF is a five port pilot solenoid valve offering large flow capacity in a compact size. The VF is available in many variations including three types of manual override and four types of electrical entry. Common exhaust for main valve and pilot valve is also available.
SMC solenoid Valves SY Range are extremely compact and offer high flow rates giving excellent performance at a reduced cost. SY valves operate with reduced power consumption meaning lower operational costs. They provide outstanding reliability delivering extended lifetime performance.
SMC Solenoid Valves VS7 range conform to ISO interface sizes 1 and 2. The pilot operated metal seal design allows the valve to be used with non-lube dry air and still maintain a long life. The pilot operated metal seal design allows the valve to be used with non-lube dry air and still maintain a long life. The VS7 is available in 2 or 3 position, double or single action. Manifolds are available with a large variety of functions and piping configurations. Size 2, ISO interface solenoid valve. Fluid: air/inert gas. Operating pressure: 0.1 to 1.0MPa. Single or double solenoids. Options include indicator light, direct manual override, wedge packing style, individual pilot EXH, surge voltage suppressor.
Using filter regulators and air lubrication systems will help prevent unnecessary damage to cylinders and other pneumatic equipment being used. We offer a comprehensive range of air filtration equipment from stock.
The SMC Pneumatics AR series pneumatic regulators have a modular design which allows connection to other SMC air preparation equipment and the AR series can be mounted using a bracket or panel mounted. All versions come with a locking setting nut to prevent accidental adjustment.
The AW series of filter regulators save space and require less piping saving on installation costs. AW filter regulators are manufactured with robust materials designed to withstand high pressures enabling the user to operate a wide regulating pressure range.
Texam Ltd can supply a wide variety of SMC pneumatic parts from stock.
