New LCR16 Series Linear Rotary Actuator, 35mm stroke, 24VDC operation with 5 micron encoder

The actuator is constructed with a direct drive brushless servo motor. It's designed with linear guide built-in lubrication to offer long life cycle.

The LCR16 from SMAC Moving Coil Actuators provides precision Z-theta motion within one small actuator, which is ideal for a pick, orient and place applications. A wide 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 z-theta actuators 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 actuator.

The actuator is constructed with a direct drive brushless servo motor. It's designed with linear guide built-in lubrication to offer long life cycle. Moreover, it provides absolute control over: force/torque, position, acceleration and velocity.

Features include:

• Direct drive brushless servo motor
• Combined linear and rotary motions in a single unit
• Fully programmable in force/torque, position and velocity
• SMAC's Patented ‘Soft-Land' Technology
• Self-lubricated linear guide
• Low shaft run-out, 30µm (Lower run-out optional)
• Vacuum through shaft prevents dust accumulation
• MTBF 100 million life cycle

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
