April 26, 2017 - SMAC Moving Coil Actuators introduces the LCA6. At 6mm wide, SMAC Moving Coil Actuators claims that the LCA6 is the thinnest linear moving coil in the world. The LCA6 is cross roller guided. Flat coils are centred between cross rollers so deflection load is reduced and rigidity is increased.

LCA6 Specs:

  • Dimensions [mm]: 60x135x6
  • Linear Stroke [mm]: 10
  • Encoder resolution [µm]: 5 standard, 0.1 optional
  • Moving mass [kg]: 0.037
  • Total mass [kg]: 0.21 (w/o cable)
  • Peak Force [N]: 3.5 @ 1.2 amps (24V)
  • Vacuum and spring optional

The LCA6 is designed for electronic pick-and-place, biomedical dispensing, and QC measurement.

SMAC’s built in sensor feedback system gives SMAC’s Moving Coil Actuators the mechatronic ability to “do work and verify its success 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 claim to be 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’s guide system makes their actuators repeatable from move to move - within 1 msec. SMAC’s product development group originated such models as the Linear/Rotary actuator, the 2 independent axis Gripper, a direct drive Robotic Finger, and magnetic circuit designs that have more than doubled forces in the same sized mechanical packages.Thanks to a cross roller bearing used at the output flange, the CSF-2UP gearheads offer stiffness.
