SMAC moving coil linear motors are used for various applications in the packaging industry as productivity enhancement tools. SMAC's all new series of linear and rotary motors have been specially designed with packaging equipment OEMs and end users in mind. With cylindrical form, these programmable linear motors fit those applications where air cylinders can't provide the speed, reliability, controllability, and longevity necessary to meet customers' productivity goals, changeover needs, and cost reduction requirements.

SMAC electric motors are not limited to just air cylinder replacement. With controllable force, velocity, and position, along with SMAC's unique Soft-Land Technology they can be used to solve your most challenging packaging process needs and deliver the feedback needed for validating processes.

Combine these features with airless operation and they are perfectly suited for pharmaceutical and clean room applications.

Products Supplied

Electric Cylinders:
High speed, compact and price-competitive cylindrical linear motors that provide an alternative to pneumatic cylinders with superior performance. SMAC electric cylinders offer life cycle well beyond 100 million cycles and the ability to repeat a move within one millisecond with no stiction. The conventional cylinder actuator shape and multiple mounting points allow the electric cylinders to be directly retrofitted in most cases.
Linear Motors:
A comprehensive selection of electric linear motors are offered in a wide range of sizes, styles, and options for automated manufacturing, packaging, assembly applications, and more. These programmable linear motors range from units with 10mm stroke in a compact unit only 8mm in height, to units with 250mm of stroke length or up to 500N peak force.
Linear Rotary Motors:
The precision Z-theta motion within one small actuator, providing a convenient pick, orient and place. A wide variety of linear rotary motors are offered with either direct drive or gearbox equipped rotary units.The vacuum-built-in shaft through the rotary motor is available for some models to prevent dust build-up in the unit. These z-theta motors can easily be programmed to control force/torque, position and velocity in all axes at the same time with feedback capability. SMAC's unique, patented "Soft-Land" function enables the unit to gently land on a delicate component with a controlled force to avoid damage of both the component and the motor.
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.
