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 SMC.
