SMC offers a variety of hydraulic cylinders are available in compact, round body, JIS or tie-rod types. Nominal pressure ranges from 3.5MPa to 16MPa. Bore sizes are available, depending on the series, from 20 to 160. Auto switches are available on most models. The air-hydro unit consists of a converter and a valve unit that are compactly integrated. It converts air pressure to an equivalent hydraulic pressure, and this hydraulic pressure is used for operating an actuator, thus solving the problem that is associated with the compression characteristics of air. Hydraulic filters are designed for installation between the pump and reservoir tank. Their main function is to protect the pump from contaminants.
