Welcome to the home of the Smart Actuator Company.


SmartAct Electric Actuators offers unmatched features and flexibility but our unique feature is that we are the world’s first product to feature the Rift Driven Energy Efficient motor technology.

Revolutionising the world of Industrial Valves may not be what springs to mind when you think of Innovation but that is exactly what this family owned Worcestershire Business is doing. Innovated, developed and manufactured in the UK by a Multi Award Winning Business who’s vision is to ‘Save the world through Innovation’.

SACO - SMARTACT-1 Electric Actuator offers unmatched features and flexibility.

The SmartAct® electric valve actuator’s are the world’s first RIFT DRIVEN® products. The RIFT motor drive saves 75% on running costs compared to standard products.

This truly is a Smart Technology Product. There are plenty of other products that use the ‘Smart’ tag but only one ‘SmartAct’. The SmartAct Actuator range utilises state of the art computer technology to offer unbeatable advantages over it’s competitors. Communicate with the SmartAct Smart Actuator via an easy to use App enabling additional features at the touch of a keypad quite literally.

Its revolutionary design has a single glass reinforced nylon housing containing the RIFT motor system and gearbox that can be configured to produce a range of output torques. There are 4 models in the range offering torque from 0 up to 500 Nm.

Smart, state of the art electronics provide accurate, reliable and repeatable performance characteristics and enabling a comprehensive list of standard and optional features to be offered. Optional extra cost features include failsafe and/ or modulating functionality, speed control and fieldbus communications.

At a time where energy consumption is becoming increasingly important to the world, the SmartAct®-1 electric actuator takes full advantage of the dramatic reduction in energy that the RIFT Driven® technology enables and creates an electric actuator with the lowest energy consumption available in the market.  In comparison tests with other competitor products the SmartAct®-1 requires only 25% or less of the energy input to do the same output work. Taking in to account the cost of energy today this gives the SmartAct®-1 a ‘lifetime cost’ that is the lowest available from any manufacturer. [Read more about it here]
