Discover our cylinders with lock/brake for safety applications. They are key elements for intermediate stop, emergency stop and drop prevention.
SMC puts a wide range of pressure regulators at your disposal to control the line pressure of your pneumatic facility. With a modular design to be placed together with other air treatment components or clustered in a manifold to manage different pressure levels at the same time. Choose the one that bests fits you.
SMC provides a wide range of flow control valves for direct mounting into the cylinder port. As such, this eliminates the problem of a tube bursting and makes the machine safer. This section also includes residual pressure release valves to release trapped air in the case of a jam. Therefore making maintenance procedures safer.
Check valves are usually placed in safety circuits. They are key elements in reliability, making the flow unidirectional when required.
