Member Since 2014


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.

SMAC Moving Coil Actuators Returns to Live Events with Pack Expo 2021

SMAC Moving Coil Actuators announced that they will be returning to live exhibitions with Pack Expo 2021 this September in Las Vegas.

At Booth #1962 in the Central Hall, SMAC will be showing the first real cost-effective electric actuator replacement for air cylinders. The new LDL series linear actuator is a fully programmable electric actuator starting at $300; a serious consideration for pneumatic replacement in new designs. The company will also be showcasing key applications such as their patented capping solution, eject/divert/sorting, and a unique mechanical approach to high-speed leak testing.

Pack Expo Las Vegas runs from September 27-29, 2021 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

SMAC Moving Coil Actuators offer true “mechatronic solutions.” By that they mean their actuators have unique capabilities such as programmable and controllable position, velocity, and force, high accelerations, cycle life well over 100M, and a patent-pending “Soft-Land” capability. The Soft-Land capability is particularly useful when performing fragile part assembly, measurement, moving objects, etc. Real time feedback of these motion attributes enables proof that the work is done (i.e., direct quality feedback).
