SMAC makes Moving Coil electric actuators. These products are the fastest actuators in the world. Cycle life is well beyond 100M. They have the ability to softly land on surfaces and then apply a programmed specific force. SMAC’s new LDL series of linear actuators has a list price of around $300 making them the first real electric actuator alternative to air cylinders. This price is based on SMAC’s contstent cost down program featuring pointed coils, in-house manufactured encoders, and laser cut parts. SMAC invented the Linear Rotary actuator 25 years ago. These are widely used in Electronic Pick and Place, Quality Thread Check, Bottle Capping, and beginning to find wide use in Automatic Screw Driving and SMART Drilling and Tapping. Interestingly a number of companies are making an effort to copy SMAC - but are not able to match technology or price. SMAC also has stepped up its efforts in inspection by launching the MLA series - a direct challenge to old tech LVDT devices.

New LDL25 Series Linear Actuator is a cost-competitive alternative to pneumatics

POSTED 03/31/2021

The LDL has been designed as a cost-competitive alternative to pneumatics.  A common trend in industrial automation is that users are looking for electric alternatives to their pneumatic components for a number of reasons: control, cycle life, operating cost and environment, etc.  The LDL series actuator features several innovative cost reduction elements that result in a list price starting at $300 US.

Features include:

  • Dimensions [mm]: 180x63.5x25.4
  • Stroke [mm]: 50 (10, 25 and 100 will be added)
  • Peak Force [N]: 30 (48VDC)
  • Encoder Resolution [µm] : 5 standard, 1 optional
  • Long life cycle tested to 500 million cycles
  • Fully programmable in force, position and velocity
  • SMAC’s Patented ‘Soft-Land’ technology
  • Built-in controller type available
  • Cost competitive: starting at $300 US for 10mm stroke
