Versatile and easy to use, the Robo Cylinder is an electric actuator that utilizes a ballscrew and an AC servo motor. It is specifically designed to accomplish the simple tasks usually assigned to air cylinders, but with greater flexibility and control. It leverages IAI's market-leading experience in producing over 300,000 single axis robots worldwide, such as high rigidity, and control over position and speed. Best of all is the very attractive price and all the benefits of electric for the same price as air.
When the new controller (Power CON 150)
equipped with our newly developed high-output
driver (patent pending) is used, the maximum
speed increases significantly by up to 1.5 times the levels achievable with IAI’s conventional models, while the payload is greater by up to twice.
In addition to these amazing improvements in
specifications, the maximum speed does not drop
as much even when the payload increases due
to increased torque with the high speed motor,
meaning that dynamic performance equivalent
to that of a higher-class model can be achieved at
From the current RCP2 series, we selected three
slider types (SA5/SA6/SA7) and two rod types
(RA5/RA6), which are among the most widely used
The rod type has a built-in
guide mechanism in the actuator to carry radial
loads on the rod over a long stroke of up to 500
mm. The guide mechanism also reduces vibration
and deflection of the rod significantly.
The motor has been unitized for easy replacement.
The actuator and motor unit can be separated
and replaced by removing only one setscrew,
so the time required for maintenance becomes
Slider types have mounting holes that are
compatible with RCP2 actuators, meaning that
you can replace your current RCP2 actuator
with a RCP4 with ease. Also, the mounting holes
provided on rod types are the same as those
provided on slider types, instead of T-slots
found on the RCP2, and reamed holes are also
provided to significantly improve installation
