SMAC Moving Coil Actuators

Reliance  is an authorised distributor of SMAC Moving Coil Actuators.
SMAC actuators offer many unique features including complete control of position, acceleration, velocity and force for each and every movement in cycle times that are too fast to see.

The ability to do work and verify accuracy at the same time!

SMAC offers a wide range of programmable electric actuators based on Moving Coil linear servo motors.
All SMAC actuators are fully programmable permitting the user to exert complete control over

  • Force,
  • Acceleration,
  • Position,
  • Velocity.

Ideal for use in industries where SMAC’s patented ‘Soft-Land’ procedure allows the actuator to both measure and manipulate very delicate and high value components with ease.

SMAC Unique Features & Benefits

  • Fully programmable in Position, Acceleration, Velocity and Force
  • Sub- micron resolution (5 µm t o 100nm )
  • Low moving mass = high acceleration ( up to 50G )
  • Direct drive = no backlash, excellent repeatability
  • Force control = Soft – Land capability
  • Up to 250 million cycles MTTF = Long operating life
  • Less than 55dB = Officially ‘Silent’ in operation

Electric CylindersSMAC-Electric-Cylinder

High speed, compact and price-competitive cylinder actuators that provide an alternative to pneumatic cylinders with superior performance.
SMAC electric cylinders offer life cycle well beyond 100 million cycles and the ability to repeat a move within one millisecond.
The conventional cylinder actuator shape and multiple mounting points allow the electric cylinders to be directly retro-fitted in most cases.

 CBL Series Electrical Cylinder

The latest series of SMAC electric actuators. Designed to overcome problems with conventional devices in the packaging industry. The CBL offers speed, accuracy and efficiency while remaining competitive on price. Superior performance and operational costs, the CBL is an ideal solution for new machine designs and upgrades.


  • Cost competitive
  • Independent control of velocity, position, and force simultaneously
  • Airless and quiet operationCBL-Series
  • Long life expectancy over 100 million cycles
  • Programmable position, velocity and force
  • Fast cycle time >2000 CPR
  • “Soft-Land” function gives extremely accurate sensing of product location
  • 100% data feedback for all operations as a standard feature
  • Ideal for clean room environments

CBL Series with built-in Controller

An electric cylinder with a built-in controller in a single, compact package for simple installation. Ideal for applications with limited space but requiring accurate control. The electric cylinders provide significantly longer life, programmable, high speed, accuracy, and energy efficiency while remaining price-competitive. Graphical User Interface is available for the built-in controller for easy, straightforward setup of parameters. It allows you to change product profiles on the fly and improves factory uptime.

  • Built-in controller
  • Programmable position, velocity and force
  • Long life expectancy over 100 million cycles
  • Airless and quiet operation
  • Graphical User Interface is available for simple set-up
  • Space saving

LCA Series

Developed as next generation servo motor based on moving coil technology. SMAC’s “Snap-Together” design controls tight tolerance stack-up to assure high product quality and achieves competitive price due to fewer parts. The LCA is designed to offer extremely long life cycle well over 100 million cycles at high speed applications. The range starting compact size with 8mm in height, ideal for electronics pick and place head, or force up to 110N for high speed and high cycle applications. As with all SMAC actuators the LCA are fully programmable in position, velocity and force with feedback capability. SMAC’s patented “Soft-Land” function is incorporated for precise force control.LCA-Series


  • Cost Effective
  • Built-in lubrication for long life over 100 million cycles
  • High cycle and acceleration
  • IP65 rate available
  • Energy efficient: low power consumption of average 1.5 amps peak at 24V or 48V
  • Quiet & clean operation
  • Data feedback


Linear Rotary Actuators SMAC-Linear-Rotary

  • The precision Z-theta motion within one small actuator, providing a convenient pick, orient and place. A wide variety of linear rotary actuators are offered 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.
