We are trusted distributors of world-class products from SMC Corporation. As such, we currently list in excess of 15,000 SMC products on our website, including an exemplary range of compact SMC pneumatic cylinders. Let’s take a look at some of our most popular compact cylinder models, available to purchase now on the Best Pneumatic Systems online store.


Our RDQ range of SMC compact cylinders uses a unique air cushion mechanism with no cushion ring, which has brought about a new standard in air cushioned cylinders. Elimination of the cushion ring has enabled a significant reduction in the overall length of the cylinder. This produces an air cushion cylinder that delivers nearly three times the allowable kinetic energy, improved noise reduction and excellent repeatability.


Our MQQ low friction compact cylinder from SMC features a metal seal construction with a low sliding speed and output control. As such, the MQQ delivers low pressure actuation at 0.005 MPa, thanks to its minimal sliding resistance. You can also expect a smooth, uniform actuation speed that ranges as low as 0.3 mm/s. With built-in ball brushing increasing the MQQ’s lateral load resistance, this SMC compact pneumatic cylinder promises a long service life of 100 million full cycles.


Finally, our C55 compact cylinder range, which conforms with ISO 21287, is available in bore sizes of 20, 25, 32, 40, 50, 63, 80 and 100 mm. This range of SMC compact cylinders also offers a large stroke range, from 5 mm up to 150 mm. The snap ring construction makes maintenance both easier and quicker. While auto switches can be mounted on any of the four sides of the cylinder tube.

So, there you have it. Our range of compact cylinders from SMC are as innovative as they are varied.
