SMC’s success with pneumatic panels
2nd Quarter 2018, Pneumatic systems & components


In an effort to innovate continuously and provide total engineering solutions while meeting demand, SMC recently expanded its local production offering to include the design and build of electro-pneumatic control panels for a range of industrial applications. From a simple assembly to a complex system, SMC’s sales engineers, designers, panel builders and technical teams work with its customers to ensure that panels are designed to specification, within budget and on time.

Most recently, SMC’s team worked with a large automotive manufacturer to shorten labour time and speed up production by using one of its custom-built panels. The previous application required that the staff on site had to manually manoeuvre two side panels on a vehicle and have them welded onto the chassis. This was proving labour intensive and safety was of concern.

The SMC team found the perfect solution to the problem – an SMC panel which housed control valves and operated CP96 cylinders (ISO) and AS flow controls; this allowed for an automated process that reduced both welding and labour time. The customer once again regarded SMC as a one-stop supplier to fulfil its automation needs and the SMC team collaborated to ensure that the project was carried out seamlessly. From a single, once-off special to a multiple cabinet order, SMC prides itself on having the resources and expertise to build high quality, fully tested control cabinets that deliver outstanding performance and offer peace of mind.
