Programmable Electric Actuator

Jan. 29, 2024

SMAC’s new LPL80 line of electric linear moving coil actuators were designed for filling machines and come in the standard 80mm size. The actuators use a dc linear servo motor, replace air cylinders and are programmable for control of speed and position. The LPL series actuators have a peak force of 170 newton and come with a standard 25 mm stroke. Other stroke lengths are available. The LPL80 also features SMAC’s “soft-land” capability (which allows the actuator rod or gripper jaw to land on the surface of a component with a low programmed force). Additionally, the actuators have a peak cycle rate of 2,400 cycles per minute and last longer than 100 million cycles. The LPL80 is waterproof with an IP67 rating. IP69 versions are also available.
