SMAC is a leading manufacturer of precision programmable electric actuators based on moving coil technology. SMAC actuators are unique in that force, position, and speed are totally programmable. SMAC electric actuators are designed to perform at exceptionally high speeds or very low speeds and with sub-micron accuracy and repeatability. Patented Soft-Land™ function gives extremely accurate sensing of product location or dimensions.

This makes SMAC electric actuators ideal for a wide range of high cycle positioning, measuring, inspection, and pick and place applications, particularly where 100% verification is required. Customers desiring to increase up-time, ease of set up, and adjustment can make dramatic improvements by using mechatronic SMAC Moving Coil technology.

Electric Cylinders

 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 with no stiction. The conventional cylinder actuator shape and multiple mounting points allow the electric cylinders to be directly retrofitted in most cases.

Linear Actuators


A comprehensive selection of electric linear actuators are offered in a wide range of sizes, styles, and options for automated manufacturing, packaging, assembly applications, and more. These programmable linear actuators range from units with 10mm stroke in a compact unit only 8mm in height, to units with 250mm of stroke length or up to 500N peak force.

Linear Rotary Actuators

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.
