Moving Coil Actuators


SMAC electric linear slide actuators are compact in overall size and, as with all SMAC actuators, have a combination of force, position and velocity control with feedback. High or low speed and precise positioning with high repeatability make them ideal for applications such as parts feeding, scanning, testing, and measuring in wide range of industries. Linear encoder resolution is 5µm with 1µm, 0.5µm and 0.1µm options available on most models.

SMAC provides a comprehensive selection of electric linear actuators, ranging 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. As with all SMAC actuators, the LAL series linear actuator has the unique ability to enable free and independent control of velocity, position and force simultaneously. Further to this, the SMAC patented "Soft-Land" function is incorporated to allow delicate and controlled force when landing on fragile components.

Combined linear and rotary actuators in one package 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 assembly.

SMAC CA Series

SMAC 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. The conventional shape and multiple mounting points allow the electric cylinders to be directly retrofitted in most cases.
