SMC, the world’s leading provider of pneumatics, is proving to customers that it delivers a fluid, flexible and fast service with its universal 2 port fluid valve range.
Recognising that automation occasionally requires non-pneumatic solutions, SMC has, over the years, used its engineering and design expertise to develop a conventional range of fluid control valves.
The broad range on offer – from compact and light designs to more complete solutions for medium flows and options for applications requiring zero differential pressure to large flows – is showcased in SMC’s comprehensive brochure with technical data and parts directory plus an online 2 port valve selector.
SMC’s European Fluid Control Project Manager, Sebastian Fabio Agnello said: “We have an enviable global reputation for our pneumatics expertise but we do recognise our customers also require alternative, non-pneumatic options. Increasingly customers wish to work with one, trusted partner so we have adapted our product lines to meet their needs and wrapped this up under the USE concept; Universal valves for standard fluids, Specific valves, optimised for specific fluids and Expert valves for specific applications.”
“We also recognise that speed of delivery is essential so our European Central Warehouse is well stocked with our valve range, guaranteeing immediate shipping,” continued Fabio Agnello.
The universal range features two direct operated 2 port solenoid valves; the VDW10/20, is ultra-compact and ideal for air, vacuum and fluid handling and the VX2 series is suitable for high temperatures whilst being energy efficient and quiet to operate.
Pilot operated solenoid valve options include the VXD series which is also highly efficient and the zero differential pressure, VXZ series. Alternatively, the robust air operated VNB series is highly versatile and can handle large flows as well as retain reverse pressure.
Supported by a range of specific and expert valves, SMC is now able to provide customers with a valve for any application in any environment.
Recognised as a global technology leader and 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.
