SMAC Moving Coil Actuators
The SMAC unique electric actuator configuration, such as is used in SMAC XY/XYZ systems, provide users with 100% parts inspection capability. SMAC offers complete inline shop floor quality measurement verification. The actuator systems are able to measure numerous features, unlike lasers and cameras. While checking for burrs, they can simultaneously check for threads, bores, grooves, and internal and external dimensions. All of this is carried out on machines in a shop floor environment.
Originally carried out by human hand, this fully automated solution is now utilized to 100% measure and test the inline production of automotive parts. These include air bag components and molded parts requiring a total dimension check. The Moving Coil Actuator from SMAC includes the unique 'Softland' function which allows the user to program the speed and positional feedback completely as per requirement. This means that surfaces or positions in spaces can be found without damaging the component or SMAC actuator.
