SMC Corporation - 2017 Global Overview


Pneumatics are easy to use, clean, safe and relatively quiet - creating better working environments – whilst saving energy and making a minimal impact on the environment.

Today, pneumatic components are found in virtually all industry sectors, and the demand for cost effective, automated solutions continues to grow.


SMC has made significant efforts to develop innovative products that meet the specific demands of diverse life science sectors. We understand that products for the life science industry must be compact, clean, efficient, precise, and flexible.

We provide high tech solutions from the smallest local organizations to the largest multinational corporations. Whether you're a specialist device manufacturer or an instrument producer looking for innovative product miniaturization, our extensive global manufacturing and distribution network ensures fast service and delivery throughout the world.


SMC has been providing pneumatic solutions to the resources sector since 1968, including development of products to withstand the harshest environments. This results in pneumatic systems that are capable of meeting stringent resource industry requirements like operation in dirty environments, continuous 24/7 operation and withstanding extreme pressures and temperatures.

SMC products address the resource industry's need to provide maximum performance while minimizing energy costs and downtime. The featured products below are categorized for reference under six primary sectors.


SMC offers a comprehensive line of pneumatic products which both meet and exceed the automotive industry's demanding manufacturing requirements. The result is a robust pneumatic system capable of continuous 24/7 operation, efficient production ramp up and operating in extreme temperatures & weld environments.

SMC products address the challenge of providing maximum performance while minimizing energy costs and downtime. The sampling of products below demonstrates how SMC continually innovates to meet the evolving needs of the automotive industry. Featured products are categorized for body and powertrain assembly.


SMC products support efficient automation for processing and packaging applications. They feature hygienic and environment resistant designs, with energy savings and safety in mind. Our pneumatic systems are capable of meeting diverse food/beverage processing and packaging requirements such as, continuous 24/7 operation, stringent hygiene regulations, continual wash down, and operation in extreme temperatures.


In semiconductor manufacturing processes, etching equipment, sputtering equipment, ion implantation equipment, and CVD equipment generally process wafers in a vacuum chamber. Precision equipment is needed to exhaust air from and supply atmospheric pressure to the vacuum chamber. High quality SMC products such as valves, regulators, pressure switches, cylinders and gate valves meet strict requirements such as non-leakage, clean specification, and corrosion resistance.

The featured products below are categorized for reference under: N₂ Gas/Air Supply Line, Cooling Water & Temperature Control Line, Transfer Line, Process Chamber Exhaust Line, and the Load-Lock Chamber Exhaust Line.


SMC manufactures a wide array of automation technologies for machine builders. Compressed air, coolants, and other fluids must be filtered, monitored, distributed and temperature controlled. We offer a complete range of world-class actuators, valves, sensors, industrial filters, fittings, regulators, temperature control devices, and more.
