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

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.


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 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.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
