 Manufacturer of short stroke linear actuators
Development and adaptation to customer-specific applications
 Made in Germany

Status Quo

The industry often requires short linear positioning operations in automated production plants. The linear movements are conventionally realized mostly by pneumatic actuators. The problems of pneumatic systems are well known: an enormous waste of energy as well as complex infrastructures due to and for the additionally required compressed air.

The solution

With a telescopic electromechanical linear actuator, SMELA offers a compatible solution for replacing pneumatic cylinders and space-intensive electrical alternatives. Direct plug & play in existing systems is quite simple, as the dimensions and scantling are based on the pneumatic compact cylinders in accordance with ISO 15552.

Our liteECO® actuators

Compared to pneumatic systems, our linear actuators save more than 75% energy and up to 80% installation space compared to existing electrical solutions.

The dynamic positioning capability as well as the simple and fast integration into the Industry 4.0 world are significant advantages.

The actuators can be used in product lines, machine tools, in the packaging industry or in logistics. For simple and complex applications for fixing, adjusting, locking and moving any motion profiles.
