SMC, the world’s leading pneumatics provider, is proving to customers it has its finger on the pulse with the relaunch of its popular VDW Series.
A compact direct operated 2 port solenoid valve for a wide range of applications, the new VDW Series is as small as a little finger and lighter than a mobile phone and offers SMC customers’ savings in terms of space, energy and labour.
With a new one touch fitting option that reduces the amount of labour required for piping, the VDW has an IP65 enclosure, protecting the valve against dust and water sprayed from all directions. Also, with the size one conventional model being 10% smaller and more lightweight, the VDW can be used in narrow spaces, making it extremely flexible.
The VDW uses less power, from as little as 2.5W up to 3W in the larger model and apparent power of 2.5VA and 3VA, when compared to similar products. This makes it ideal for dental units, water curtain manufacture and lens polishing processes that use air, medium vacuum and water applications that don’t require a large flow. It is also significantly quieter thanks to a new rubber damper.
Available in a wide range of body materials with two new additions, Aluminium and PPS resin, combined with the existing options of Brass C37 and Stainless Steel, the VDW also has two seal material options of NBR and FKM.
SMC is recognised as the global technology leader in the pneumatic industry and offers over 11,000 basic products with over 600,000 variations. The company, which was recently voted for the second consecutive year as one of the world’s most innovative by leading business magazine, Forbes, has a diverse customer base covering all automation industries.
