CBL35 series data sheet - .PDF file.

The CBL35 series of electric cylinders from SMAC is designed to overcome the problems presented by conventional devices in the packaging industry. CBL cylinders are quieter than pneumatic technology and they do not produce dirty process exhaust. This makes them suitable for cleanroom environments and where Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations have been introduced.

The CBL35 is the first model in the series. It has a 35mm diameter and stroke lengths of 10mm and 25mm. Additional models, including the CBL50, will be available later in January, with the CBL15, CBL25 and CBL75 to follow in the coming months.

CBL electric cylinders are designed for fast, easy stroke adjustability via electrical interface — users simply type in the required speed, position acceleration and force.

This allows for extremely precise adjustments in a fraction of the time that pneumatic cylinders require, with no manual re-adjustments required. This results in time and cost savings and an increase in throughput due to the reduction of in equipment downtime.

Key features and benefits

  • ‘Snap Together’ design controls tight-tolerance stack-up and assures high product quality
  • Long cycle life at high cycle rates is ensured: more than 100 million cycles compared with many conventional air cylinders that have a working life of only 10 million to 20 million cycles
  • Carriage-free designs and built-in linear bearings including SMAC lube rings provide longer life
  • Design and construction of CBL electric cylinders allows for cylinder acceleration up to 50g; they can operate at more than 2,000 cycles per minute where pneumatic cylinders rarely exceed 1,000 cycles per minute
  • CBL35 power consumption is as low as 1.5A and 24V, compared with the air consumption of air cylinders and the inefficiencies of producing and transporting compressed air
  • Since the primary wear item in the CBL electric cylinder is the guide bushing, they can be easily and quickly repaired in the field at the end of their initial service life
  • CBL line offers the ability to enable free and independent control of velocity, position and force simultaneously
  • Soft-land function provides for the accurate sensing of product location and ensures precise force control; the cylinders also provide 100 per cent data feedback for all operations as a standard feature
  • No external switches or sensors are required to validate cylinder movement or position, enabling a reduction in external wiring and a significant reduction in installation costs
  • CBL cylinders offer more consistent actuation times, with as little as one millisecond of variance in cycle times; with more consistent and accurate actuation comes improved high-speed performance

SMAC Moving Coil Actuators

SMAC manufactures precision programmable electric actuators based on moving coil technology. These actuators are unique in that force, position and speed are totally programmable. They are designed to perform at exceptionally high speeds or very low speeds and with sub-micron accuracy and repeatability. This makes them ideal for a wide range of positioning, measuring, inspection and pick and place applications, particularly where 100% verification is required. Products include linear, linear and rotary, linear slide, electric cylinders, compact grippers, integrated XY and XYZ stages, positioning stages and multi-axis systems.
