Press Release Summary:
Suitable in biomedical dispensing and QC measurement, LCA6 Moving Coil Actuators offer encoder resolution of 5 µm. Delivering peak force of 3.5 N at 1.2 amps, units feature flat coils centered between cross rollers for reducing deflection load. Having 0.037 kg and 0.21 kg of moving mass and total mass respectively, actuators are designed in 60 x 135 x 6 mm dimensions. Actuators come with Soft-Land capability and programmable position, force and velocity.
Original Press Release:
Introducing the Thinnest Moving Coil Linear Motor in the World
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, increasing accuracy. Flat coils are centred between cross rollers so deflection load is reduced and rigidity is increased. In addition, the LCA6 is small and stackable, conserving space.
- 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 great for electronic pick-and-place, biomedical dispensing, and QC measurement.
The LCA6 benefits include a compact and slim package, superior cross ruler guiding, ultra-low friction, ultra-smooth and rigid guiding, programmable position, force, velocity, Soft-Land capability, and feedback of position, force, and velocity.
SMAC’s built in sensor feedback system gives SMAC’s Moving Coil Actuators the unique 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 low friction guide system makes their actuators extremely 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, the world’s first direct drive Robotic Finger, and advanced 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 high-moment stiffness.
