March 15, 2021

The LDL has been designed as a cost-competitive alternative to pneumatics.  A common trend in industrial automation is that users are looking for electric alternatives to their pneumatic components for a number of reasons: control, cycle life, operating cost and environment, etc.  The LDL series actuator features several innovative cost reduction elements that result in a list price starting at $300 US.

Features include:

  •    –   Dimensions [mm]: 180×63.5×25.4
  •    –   Stroke [mm]: 50 (10, 25 and 100 will be added)
  •    –   Peak Force [N]: 30 (48VDC)
  •    –   Encoder Resolution [µm] : 5 standard, 1 optional
  •    –   Long life cycle tested to 500 million cycles
  •    –   Fully programmable in force, position and velocity
  •    –   SMAC’s Patented ‘Soft-Land’ technology
  •    –   Built-in controller type available
  •    –   Cost competitive: starting at $300 US for 10mm stroke
