Collaboration

Wireless

Avoid the hassle of cables with your robot

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.

Speed

Let your robot move faster; push your productivity

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.

Endurance

Designed to endure your robot’s movements

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.

Easy Exchange

Changing your robot’s tools has never been easier

When several tools have to be used in the same robot application, don't hesitate, take a look at our next product.

Miniature

The space saving 3-in-1 electric solution your robot needed

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.

Use robotics to take a firm grip on production flexibility

 By Marcus Mazetti, Global Account Manager, SMC Sweden

MARCH 2022
Once the preserve of high-volume operations at automotive plants, we’re today finding that robots are infiltrating all sectors of the commercial world. Even beyond traditional manufacturing, inspection and packaging operations, we see robots fulfilling tasks that extend from mining and space exploration, through to surgery and laboratory research, and even fruit picking. With such a vast repertoire of applications, the robots of today need one principal attribute: flexibility. Much of this flexibility comes courtesy of the end-of-arm tooling (gripper), which means there are many factors to bear in mind when selecting a gripper technology supplier, not least breadth of portfolio, proven customisation capabilities and high levels of customer support.

Cobots en eindeffectoren vinden elkaar in betaalbare flexibele oplossingen

 Door Andrea Trifone, Cobot Project Leader SMC Italië

JANUARI 2021
Terwijl robotica leidde naar de snelle groei van automatisering, zien we cobots als de democratisering van roboticatechnologie. Ze sluiten de kosten en complexe programmering uit die gewoonlijk vereist zijn bij robots, terwijl ze veel meer flexibiliteit bieden.
