SMC releases digital gap measuring system

ISA3 - 3-Color Display, Digital Gap Checker

The ISA series is a non-contact style air catch sensor for applications requiring confirmation of work present for machining operations. Due to the construction of the sensor, fluctuations in the supply pressure does not influence operations. The ISA series is IP66 rated and is dust proof and drip proof.

  • Simple setting
  • Energy saving
  • Improved drainage resistance
  • Easy maintenance

More information on the product can be found in the product brochure HERE.

SMC LEY electric actuators boast new sizes, features

 

SMC has announced new bore sizes, environmental options, and control features for their LEY line of eclectric actuators.  These new features include:
  • New 63mm bore size
  • IP65 dust/drip proof option 
  • Broad variety of motion control options:
    • DC Step Data Input (LECP6, 24VDC stepper with encoder, 64 programmable locations, set by teaching box or PC software)
    • DC Step Data Input (LECA6, 24VDC servo with encoder, 64 programmable locations, set by teaching box or PC software)
    • DC Programless (LECP1, 24VDC stepper with encoder, entirely programmable through on-drive buttons)
    • DC Pulse Input (LECPA, 24VDC stepper with encoder, step/direction inputs suitable for use with customer motion controller)
    • AC Pulse Input Incremental (LECSA, 100/200VAC servo with incremental encoder, step/direction inputs suitable for use with customer motion controller)
    • AC Pulse Input Incremental (LECSB, 100/200VAC servo with absolute encoder, step/direction inputs suitable for use with customer motion controller)

SMC introduces miniature linear motor actuator

SMC's new LAT3 series card motors are miniaturized electric actuators incorporating a linear motor, linear guide and a displacement sensor. These units are designed for the following applications:
  • Small working envelope - 9 mm thick, 60 - 90 mm long, 50 mm wide 
  • Low pushing force  - maximum pushing force of 6 N
  • High accuracy - repeatability ± 5µm
  • Measurement - ± 10µm pushing measurement accuracy (with an example load mass of 100 g, and stroke of 5mm)
  • High Duty Cycle - Up to 500 cycles per minute.
The unit is very easy to program.  Enter the position, move time, and the load mass and the controller will automatically calculate the speed, acceleration, and deceleration necessary to make the move.
For additional information see the PDF catalog at this link:  SMC LAT3 PDF Catalog

SMC Releases LE Series Electric Actuators


Dramatic Command of Force and Motion - LE Electric Actuator Family


Looking for small, well engineered, easy to use, electric positioning/gripping solutions?  

Look no further - over the past several years, SMC has brought to market our next generation of electric actuators with one simple goal in mind.  We are committed to providing the most versatile products possible for solving our customers' automated motion applications.  Pneumatic actuators continue to provide the best combination of features and performance for the movements of many machines and devices.  Electric actuators complement the pneumatic range, offering more sophisticated behaviors such as multi-positioning, high accuracy and repeatability, and precise control of velocity and acceleration.

LE products share the following characteristics:

  • Multiple sizes, strokes, and options for each series

  • Lower energy consumption than pneumatic devices

  • Control software with preset parameters and easy step data setting

  • Controller options for multiple levels of ease or complexity

  • AC servo rod and slide styles for higher force, speed and acceleration

  • SI network capability - Ethernet/IP, DeviceNet, CC-Link, Profibus

  • Free model selection software available
