LAR Series Linear Rotary Actuators

LAR Series

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.

Increase of torque/gear ratio: Alternative geared motors are available for some units.

Rotary encoder resolution: Consult factory for higher resolution.

Increase of force accuracy & lifetime: Extra long life linear guide, Low friction linear guide
