SMAC Moving Coil Actuator

SMAC designs and manufactures advanced electric actuators. All SMAC actuators are quality products specifically designed and built for long service


The CA range of electric cylinders have been designed with the most demanding of automation tasks in mind and are the first real linear motors to challenge pneumatic devices. They offer long life and much more precise and repeatable force control and positioning than conventional pneumatic devices.

SMAC’s electric linear actuators, range from units with 5mm stroke in a compact unit only 10mm in height, to units with 150mm of stroke length or up to 500N peak force. The LAL series linear actuator has the unique ability to enable free and independent control of velocity, position and force simultaneously.

gripper
SMAC electric grippers incorporate programmable speeds, positions and forces with data feedback. The ability to independently control each jaw allows precise force control, measurement and positioning. This makes them ideal for a wide range of positioning, measuring, and inspection applications, particularly where 100% verification is required.

Electric Cylinder with Built-in Controller

SMAC CBL35C Electric Cylinder with Built-in Controller
An electric cylinder with a built-in controller in a single, compact package for simple installation. Ideal for applications with limited space but requiring accurate control. The electric cylinders provide significantly longer life, programmability, high speed, accuracy, and energy efficiency while remaining price-competitive. Graphical User Interface is available for the built-in controller for easy, straightforward setup of parameters. It allows you to change product profiles on the fly and improves factory uptime.

  • Built-in controller
  • Programmable position, velocity and force
  • Long life expectancy over 100 million cycles
  • Airless and quiet operation
  • Graphical User Interface is available for simple set-up
  • Space saving

MGR5 Programmable Micro Gripper

MGR5 micro gripper
The SMAC MGR5 Series Micro Gripper is very light – around 30 grams – and can be used as an end effector on robotic applications. The were developed to handle small very fragile parts. It includes the company’s patented Soft-Land feature, programmable force down to 5 grams, and two independently controlled gripper fingers to pick up asymmetric parts.

SMAC’s built-in sensor feedback system gives the Micro Gripper, the unique mechatronic ability to “perform a task and verify its quality at the same time.” This would allow the actuators to quality check key processes 100% in real time and feedback the results.

SMAC Moving Coil Actuators is primarily known for its 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 very useful when performing fragile part assembly, measurement, moving objects, etc.

SMAC electric grippers incorporate programmable speeds, positions and forces with data feedback. The ability to independently control each jaw allows precise force control, measurement and positioning. This makes them ideal for a wide range of positioning, measuring, and inspection applications, particularly where 100% verification is required.
