Actuators & Air Cylinders
Actuator and air cylinder designs from SMC offer innovative pneumatic cylinder design features for the automation industry. Engineers trust SMC actuators to provide long life, and reliable service. SMC products are specified in all major industrial markets. SMC actuators are created to provide you with the largest array of choices.
Air Cylinder Features
Our standard air cylinder features include:
a wide range of bore sizes, with 16 ‘inch’ bore sizes and 18 ‘metric’ bore sizes
multiple mounting configurations and
auto switch capability as a standard on most series.
SMC products are designed for precision performance and reliability. Our global production facilities provide product availability from all industrialized countries around the world. Pneumatic and electric actuator products from SMC are available in a wide variety of styles, including linear, guided, rodless air cylinders, rotary, gripper, and specialty air cylinders. Whether pneumatic or electric actuators, each series comes with a full complement of standard options and related products.
Basic Air Cylinder, Air Linear Actuator, Double Rod Air Cylinder, Single Acting Air Cylinder, and Double Acting
Linear: Basic Air Cylinder
Basic linear cylinders are used to provide straight-line, in/out linear movement for a variety of applications. Available as single acting (spring extend or spring return) and double acting styles with single rod or double rod configurations, non-rotating, and precision non-rotating models.
Body styles include crimped, round, or tie rod. Single acting cylinders develop thrust in one direction and have lower air consumption compared with the equivalent size of double acting cylinders. With a double acting air cylinder, air pressure may be alternately applied to provide force in both directions.
Series: CQ2-Z, NCQ2-Z, NCM, NCJ2, NCG, NCA1, CJ2, CM2, CG1, MB, CS1, CS2, C85, C96
Compact Actuators and Compact Air Cylinders
Linear: Compact Cylinders
A compact cylinder functions in the same manner as a basic cylinder with both single acting and double acting, single or double rod, and non-rotating models. However, SMC compact cylinders minimize space requirements allowing for precise, direct mounting in the least amount of space possible.
Series: CQ2-Z, NCQ2-Z, NCQ8, CQS, CQM, CVQ, RQ, CLQ
Rodless Actuators, Rodless Air Cylinder
Linear: Rodless Air Cylinder
A rodless air cylinder differs from a basic air cylinder in that no piston rod extends outside the cylinder body. Instead, the internal piston is connected to an external carriage, by means of a magnetic or mechanical coupling system.
SMC’s rodless air cylinders are ideal for long stroke applications because they are unaffected by rod overhang, bending, piston binding, and uneven seal wear, and for use in confined areas where space is a premium.
Series: CY, REA, MY1, MY2, MY3
Guided Air Cylinders
Guided cylinders utilize guide rods mounted parallel to the piston rod to provide stable, non-rotating, high side load performance. SMC offers dual rod, heavy duty and precision models. Like rodless cylinders, SMC guide rod cylinders reduce rod bending, piston bending and uneven seal wear. Low profile guided actuator series are available for restrictive space limitations.
Series: CXS, MGP, MGQ, MGG, MGC, MGF, MTS
Slide Table Actuators
SMC guided actuators are utilized in applications that call for high rigidity and high accuracy. Typically, an air cylinder and a precision guide are required to meet these needs; however the MX series integrates the guide table and air cylinder into one precisely machined component. MXQ series endless track linear guide produces a table cylinder having excellent rigidity, linearity and non-rotating accuracy.
The MX series provides approximately twice the force output of a conventional cylinder through the engineering of a twin piston design.
Series: MXS, MXQ, MXH, MXF, MXW, MXJ, MXP, MXY
Rotary Actuator, Pneumatic Rotary Actuator
SMC manufactures both Rack and Pinion and Vane style pneumatic rotary actuator products. Combination rotary models combine compact linear cylinders and rotational capability. Combinations are also available that include rotary gripper capabilities. When the application calls for rotational motion less than one revolution, rotary cylinders can mount right at the equipment joint without taking up space with long stroke lengths, which would be required to do the same job with a linear cylinder. SMC’s pneumatic rotary actuator units can achieve arc lengths of 90°, 180°, 190°, or even 270°, depending on the configuration. SMC offers both electric and pneumatic rotary actuator products.
Series: MSU, CRB1, MSQ, NCRQ, NCRA1, MK-Z, MRQ, MHRQ

Series: MHZ, MHK, MHL, MHR, MHS, MHQ, MHF, MHC, MHY, MHW, MHT, MHRQ
Specialty Actuator, combination linear and Rotary actuator, pneumatic rotary actuator
Specialty & Engineered Cylinder Designs
When your application requires that a task be performed that can not be completed with standard air cylinders, SMC can help you find the solution. SMC offers a variety of specialty air cylinders including Sine (smooth acceleration), Load Stopping, and Clamp to name a few. For example, the transportation of delicate items often requires greater control of cylinder speed, acceleration and deceleration than is afforded by traditional pneumatic cylinders. For this reason, SMC has developed a RE series of sine cylinders. These cylinders facilitate high-speed transportation of work but have very smooth actuation (similar to sine wave).
For your demanding applications our large engineering department can customize a product solution for you. Need a special variation on our standard pneumatic rotary actuator? No problem. We can create a three-stop rotary unit to meet your custom needs.

HEB1 The HEB is a thermoelectric circulating bath comprised of a controller and liquid tank. Cooling is performed by a refrigerant-free peltier element, with extracted heat removed via facility water connection. Temperature can be set from -15.0 to 60.0°C (fluid dependent), achieving a distribution of ±0.2°C in the bath. Abnormal heating and temperature sensor errors can be detected and reported. Overall dimensions and power requirements are suitable for laboratory benchtop service.
Standards include: CE, UL

HEC1 HEC recirculating chillers satisfy low capacity temperature control demand in the range of 140 to 1200 watts. A refrigerant-free, thermoelectric peltier element controls temperature from 10.0 to 60.0°C, with precision of ±0.1°C under stable load conditions. Extracted heat can be air or water cooled. 15 alarms support functional troubleshooting, and can be observed on the LCD display or over serial communication. Low noise and vibration, compact dimensions and flexible power requirements are suitable for laboratory benchtop service.
Standards include: CE, UL, RoHS

HED1 The HED is a specialty recirculating chiller designed for direct temperature control of chemical liquids in the 300 to 750 watt capacity range. The device consists of a controller and separate fluororesin heat exchanger. An external circulation pump must be customer supplied. Typical compatible fluids include hydrofluoric and sulfuric acid, copper sulfate solution, ammonia hydrogen peroxide, sodium hydroxide, and deionized or ozonated water. A refrigerant-free, thermoelectric peltier element controls temperature from 10.0 to 60.0°C, with precision of ±0.1°C. Extracted heat can be removed via facility water connection. 17 failure diagnostics can be displayed on the LCD display or read out over serial communication.
Standards include: CE, SEMI S2-0706, F47-0706, RoHS
