SMAC Introduces High Performance Electric Cylinder

SMAC Introduces High Performance Electric Cylinder

SMAC, Inc. launches its new CBL series of electric cylinders. CBL cylinders offer high speed performance and long cycle life at competitive prices, starting below $500. SMAC’s “snap together” design prevents tolerance stack-up, assures high product quality and allows for competitive pricing. SMAC’s new series has moved voice coil actuators into areas which were previously the domain of pneumatic devices.

CBL Series electric cylinders offer a long cycle life at high cycle rates: over 100 million cycles compared to many conventional air cylinders that have a working life of only around 10 million to 20 million cycles. Carriage-free designs and built-in linear bearings including SMAC lube rings provide longer life. The innovative design and construction of CBL electric cylinders allows for cylinder acceleration up to 50G. They can operate at over 2,000 CPM where pneumatic cylinders rarely exceed 1,000 cycles per minute.

As with all SMAC actuators, the CBL line offers the ability to enable free and independent control of velocity, position, and force simultaneously. SMAC’s patented “Soft-land” function provides for extremely accurate sensing of product location and ensures precise force control. These cylinders also provide 100% data feedback for all operations as a standard feature.

When compared to pneumatic technology, CBL cylinders are far quieter, and because they’re electric, they produce none of the dirty process exhaust that pneumatic cylinders do. This makes the CBL ideal for clean room environments and where Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations has been introduced.
