Robots and humans are forced to work hand in hand: industrial robots running more and more production plants, humans contributing their skills for strategic thinking, invention and detail.
With a close relationship with our customers – our inspiration – SMC products are used to find and create solutions that were not previously thought possible.
We consider, SMC can be “Your right arm” in Robotics, our international teams of Experts are ready to support you with your daily challenges and our local and European technical centres ready to develop any customised solution you might need.
Discover our key solutions for robotics below: collaborative, innovative, compact, lightweight and enduring. Easy & Flexible.
Further down, do not miss how SMC solutions can specifically boost welding, painting and handling applications. Moreover, there are even more benefits at your disposal; with the end effector range we can offer for collaborative robots.
Download SMC’s Expert Report and discover more in-depth how the current challenges are taking industrial robots to the next level. Learn how to make your robots Industry 4.0-proof, taking advantage of innovative, compact and flexible components together with collaborative solutions to become more competitive.
Flexibility, easy integration and fast operation are 3 requirements that industry increasingly demands for automation, the same 3 features that collaborative robots – or cobots – achieve.
With the world's first integrated Wireless valve system, any robotic application can benefit from both reduced installation time and costly production downtime. Easier and cost-effective with no industrial communication cables.
Our J Series includes a range of pneumatic solutions specially designed under a weight & dimensions optimisation concept. This will enable your robot arm to move faster as the inertia loads are reduced, being more productive thanks to greatly enhanced cycle times.
Robot applications usually need to withstand fast and complex movements. Here you have our proposal to increase the life of your products forgetting about being continually on the lookout for maintenance.
When several tools have to be used in the same robot application, don't hesitate, take a look at our next product.
Miniaturisation is a key factor to increasing the productivity of your robot application and that is why we have designed an ultra-compact solution integrating a linear motor, a linear guide and a displacement sensor.
Pneumatic, electric or what you never imagined, a great variety of options with which SMC allows you to handle whatever you want with your robot.
If vacuum is a must for your robot application, we have a great offer: lightness, reduced response times, integration or a variety of materials and shapes, everything you could need can be found in our vacuum section.
We have current-resistant solutions at your disposal for the fixing and positioning of the material to be welded, as well as a wide range of tubes suitable for the welding sector where the environments are exposed to harsh spatters.
We make your painting application easier with a variety of silicone-free products, a suitable choice for automotive and paint industries to avoid detrimental effects on paint adhesion.
