SMAC: Electric cylinder

SMAC Moving Coil Actuators, Inc. has introduced built-in controllers that can be equipped with any SMAC CB and LCA actuator for 5- and 1-micron applications; the CBL35C electric cylinder is the first in the series with a built-in controller, offering the advantages of virtually no noise, longer life and no air contamination.

The new CBL35C series electric cylinder with built-in controller in a single package enables the simple and direct replacement of pneumatic and ball screw drive actuators by SMAC moving coil actuators on machines already in production that do not have locations allocated for separate controllers. With SMAC’s built-in controller, the CBL35C series electric cylinder can control the force, speed and velocity profile. The CBL35C with built-in controller allows simple installation and effective use of space.

The CBL35C provides significantly longer life, programmability, higher speed, accuracy and energy efficiency while remaining price-competitive. The CBL35C also provides a more sustainable solution by not requiring costly compressed air. Thus there is no air contamination in applications such as nitrogen dosing.
