To provide customers with greater choice and flexibility, SMC is now
making its LE electric actuator range available without a motor. This customised
option offers customers overall operating efficiencies and reduced labour costs.
Vitoria, Spain (March 22, 2016)
SMC, the worldwide leading expert in pneumatics, is giving its customers the
option to purchase electric actuators without an attached motor.
Designed to give greater choice and reduced labour time, customers can purchase
the motor and driver from 14 approved suppliers, including OMRON Corporation,
Siemens AG, Beckhoff Automation GmbH and YASKAWA Electric Corporation. By informing
SMC of which supplier they have specified, the customised actuator is equipped
with the relevant mounting part, so the product arrives ready for fitting.
SMC said: “At SMC, the customer is at the heart of everything we do and
we are continually seeking ways of working with our customers to optimise production
processes and improve quality. By offering our customers greater choice, we
are not only listening to what they want but responding to their needs.”
The actuators offering the motor free option are five of SMC’s most popular
LE Series: LEFS, LEFB, LEJS, LEY and LEYG. “Our electric actuators have
a reputation for quality and reliability, but by giving the option to customise
them, we are further strengthening the appeal of our LE range,” added
