Thin Moving Coil Linear Motor



"SMAC Moving Coil Actuators offer the 6mm wide LCA6, said to be the thinnest linear moving coil in the world," said a company spokesperson.

The LCA6 is cross roller guided, increasing accuracy. Flat coils are centered between cross rollers so deflection load is reduced and rigidity is increased. Also, the LCA6 is small and stackable, conserving space.

LCA6 specs are:

  • Linear stroke: 10 mm
  • Encoder resolution: 0.1-5 micron
  • Coil resistance: 18.9 OHMS (24V)
  • Moving mass: 38 g
  • Total mass: 210 g (w/o cable)
  • Peak force: 3.5N (24V)

The LCA6 is designed for electronic pick & place, biomedical dispensing and QC measurement.

The LCA6 features a compact and slim package, enhanced cross ruler guiding, low friction, 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 moving coil actuators the unique mechatronic ability to do work and verify its success at the same time," said the spokesperson. This allows the actuators to quality check key processes 100% in real time and feedback the results.

"The actuators are designed to be "mechatronic solutions." Capabilities include programmable and controllable position, velocity, and force, high accelerations, cycle life over 100M and a patent-pending "Soft-Land" capability. The Soft-Land capability is useful when performing fragile part assembly, measurement, moving objects, etc," said the spokesperson.

SMAC's low friction guide system makes its actuators repeatable from move to move - within 1 msec.
