The new LDL series electric linear motor actuator from SMAC is aimed squarely at replacing pneumatic cylinders in systems where users want to increase speed, lifetime, efficiency and control. 

Modern manufacturing techniques make this the lowest cost unit ever produced by SMAC, starting at less than £450 for a complete system with built-in programmable controller. 

The model shown is the LDL25 which is capable of 28N peak force and strokes up to 100mm, but a wide range of LDL models is in development. All SMAC actuators are high speed and boast life times of hundreds of millions of cycles, with repeatable control on every one.
