SMC, the world’s leading provider of pneumatics, has grabbed the clamp cylinder market with the relaunch of its range under the CK1-Z Series.
This new series brings a competitive edge to customers, through improved speed adjustments and optimised tube lengths, supporting SMC’s investment in research and development to refine and improve the performance and functionality of its products.
The CK1-Z features a built-in speed controller on both the rod and head ends and can be easily adjusted, up to 4.5 turns to deliver a refined performance and labour savings. This integrated design, which also benefits from a reduction in tube length, means the CK1-Z offers space savings.
All-round flexibility is achieved with a flexible air cushion that can be selected in one end as standard, or both ends and adjusted to meet individual customer needs. In addition magnetic field resistant auto-switches can be mounted in three directions, and besides have the option to use an auto switch mounting rod. Piping flexibility is achieved through the ports located on three surfaces.
Designed with customer needs at heart, the CK1-Z Series is ideal for clamping operations in locations that have standard or strong magnetic fields, and in the automotive manufacturing sector.
Recognised as a global technology leader and recently voted for the third consecutive year as one of the world’s most innovative by leading business magazine, Forbes, SMC has a diverse customer base covering all automation industries.
