The Smooth Tuner is a style of machine head (a.k.a. tuning peg) installed on a number of Ibanez guitar models. They were produced for Ibanez by Gotoh.
The Smooth Tuner have a button shape which is unique to Ibanez and an 18:1 gear ratio.. They were offered with a couple of different styles of tuner body which are similar in design to Gotoh's SG301 or SG381 tuners.
The Smooth Tuner II is a different tuner which was offered concurrently. The primary difference between the two is the button style.
