SMAC Moving Coil Actuators releases LCR16 series linear rotary actuators
February 19, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
February 19, 2019 – SMAC Moving Coil Actuators has introduced the new LCR16 series linear rotary actuator, ideal for pick, orient and place applications.
The devices provide precision z-theta motion within one small actuator. A variety of LCR16 linear rotary actuators are available 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 actuators can be programmed to control force/torque, position and velocity in all axes at the same time with feedback capability. SMAC’s 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 actuator.
The actuator is constructed with a direct drive brushless servo motor with 35 mm stroke and 24VDC operation with a five-micro encoder. It’s designed with linear guide built-in lubrication.
Available at Electromate.
