Rollon has updated its Smart System lineup of belt-driven linear actuators with a design that supports heavy loads and low maintenance operation in automated manufacturing, packaging machines, and food and beverage equipment.

The actuators have a self-sustaining anodized aluminum frame and a steel reinforced driving belt, they are engineered to provide stiffness for greater load capacity. Symmetrical heads on both ends of the actuators allow users to assemble the gearbox in one of four different positions. The Smart System is designed to make it easy to create multi-axis systems such as a two-axis Y-Z system, two parallel axis system or a three-axis X-Y-Z system using simple brackets and plates.

Designed to deliver speeds up to five metres per second with possible acceleration of 50 metres per second squared, Rollon Smart System actuators achieve accuracy of ±0.05 millimetres.
