SMAC programmable actuators allow 100% detailed inspection and verification for all mission critical parts and are being used in a variety of applications such as screw thread checking, switch tests, quality measurement, effort testing, displacement testing and more. SMAC can provide unique inline quality control solutions that successfully automate inspection procedures.
SMAC provides a comprehensive selection of combined linear and rotary actuators with either direct drive or gearbox equipped rotary units. They can easily be programmed to control force/torque, position and velocity in all axes at the same time.
The actuator has SMAC’s unique “Soft-Land” function which enables the unit to gently land on a delicate component with a controlled force to avoid damage of both the component and the actuator. This makes them ideal for applications such as pick and place and assemble.

These 35mm diameter electric cylinders offer over 100 million cycles with acceleration up to 50G, operating at over 2,000 cyles per minute (CPM).
Designed for fast, easy stroke adjustability the CBL allows extremely precise speed, acceleration and force adjustments in a fraction of the time pneumatic cylinders require, and with no manual readjustments.
- “Soft-land” function provides accurate location and force control
- 100% data feedback
- No external switches or sensors required
- Low 1.5 amps, 24V power consumption
The SMAC CA Series of electric cylinders with direct drive provide cost efficiency and increased performance for high precision applications with high speed. The CA series comes with diameters of 8, 12, 16, 24, 35, 36, 50, 75 and 150mm. This is a proven robust linear actuator with a round design that uses moving coil technology. Available strokes range from 10 to 50mm with encoder resolutions of 20, 5, 1, 0.5, 0.1 or 0.05 microns.
SMAC electric cylinders have a low moving mass and are equipped with a self-lubricating splined shaft linear guide, which significantly decreases friction. This enables the unit to generate a low controlled contact force while using the SMAC patented Soft-Land function. This eliminates any damage to components during handling. Position, force and speed are individually, programmed through a standard PC interface.
