Electric cylinders with direct drive provide cost efficiency and increased performance

09 December 2009

SMAC electric cylinders are designed to realise better quality and higher throughput for industrial applications as well as providing a cost effective alternative to pneumatics.

The concept of the CA series which comes with diameters of 8, 12, 16, 24, 35, 36, 50, 75 and 150mm has been proved to be successful: robust linear actuators with a round design that use moving coil technology. Available strokes – depending on the model – 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. Thus, re-calibration for applications with different sized components can be carried out in a very short period of time.

SMAC electric cylinders provide better force control for glass applications, and better force control and quality feedback for medical product manufacturing and assembly. SMAC electric cylinders are high speed, low cost and have the ability to measure what cameras and lasers cannot during part inspection. They also enable quick adjustment and provide longer life. SMAC electric cylinders are therefore rapidly replacing older linear actuator technology and camera and laser measuring systems.
