IAI - Intelligent Actuator

Buying off-the-shelf Intelligent Actuator products is more cost-effective than building your own, and puts your project into production sooner With the introduction of a full range of ROBO Cylinders, IAI is also leading the transition away from pneumatics to cost-effective, low-maintenance, and fully-programmable electric cylinders. Their straightforward programming language and pre-formatted products make it easy to integrate IAI products with other components

EC ELECylinder

EC ELECylinders

Ushering in a new era of easy electric cylinder control, the easy ELECylinder is designed for simplicity from start-up to maintenance. Speed / Acceleration settings can be set in just 5 minutes. No time-consuming programming is necessary. You can also operate it with ON / OFF signals, like a solenoid valve. The ELECYLINDER can start and stop smoothly at high velocity, reducing cycle time.

  • Acceleration, velocity and deceleration (AVD) can be set individually
  • Teach pendant troubleshooting for easy diagnostics and repair
  • Start and end points can be set at any value
  • Battery-less absolute encoder means no maintenance required
  • Built-in controller requires no control panel space

ROBO Cylinder

IAI ROBO Cylinders

The ROBO Cylinder® is a flexible, intelligent, and economical, ballscrew linear actuator from Intelligent Actuator. Economical and easy to use, the ROBO Cylinder® is specifically designed to accomplish the simple tasks usually assigned to air cylinders, but with greater flexibility and control.

  • Multiple Positioning
  • ±.02mm Repeatability
  • Programmable Velocity Control
  • Programmable Acceleration & Deceleration
  • Programmable Torque Control (Push Function)
  • 50mm to 1000mm Stroke Lengths
  • 1mm/s to 1000mm/s Speed (Depends on Model)
  • Serial I/O for linking up to 16 axes

Single-axis Actuators

IAI Single Axis actuator

IAI offers a wide range of single -axis linear actuator solutions including clean room and high speed high payload versions. The ballscrew-driven linear actuator is based on an extruded aluminum frame with a built-in linear motion guide system. An AC Servo motor provides closed-loop feedback to the motion controller. Replacing the ball screw with no-friction magnets, the Linear Servo (LS) series magnetic linear actuator delivers exceptional repeatability at ultra-high speeds. And if you are looking to dramatically reduce your cycle time, the LS magnetic linear actuator can accelerate or decelerate at an extremely fast 3G – much faster than even an advanced ball screw linear actuator. The IF is a belt-driven version of the IS Actuator. By combining the high moment loads of the IS with the speed of the FS, the IF Series has proven itself in providing torsional rigidity, reliability, and high speeds.

Multi-Axis Cartesian

IK Series cartesian

The competitively priced ROBO Cylinder IK Series is the multi-axes solution to your automation needs. In addition to easy set-up and simple software programming, IAI's high-quality electric actuators are energy efficient and will dramatically reduce your energy bills. The ROBO Cylinder IK Series multi-axes kit includes everything needed for fast and easy assembly. The available configurations have been greatly expanded, allowing the ideal selection to suit your needs from 396 options. The ROBO Cylinder® equipped as standard with a Battery-less Absolute Encoder has been added to the "IK Series".

The ICS provides a complete system solution! The ICS usually consists of various combinations of the ISP or ISPD (Clean Room) high-performance actuators which feature exceptional speed, rigidity, repeatability, and payload capabilities. An ICS is a complete system, including the high-performance X-SEL motion controller and all necessary brackets, cables, and cable management.

SCARA Robots


IX SCARA (Selective Compliant Assembly Robot Arm) robots are ideal for high speed, precision operations such as sealing, dispensing, parts insertion, assembly, and more.

  • IXA high speed robots
  • IXP cost effective robots
  • IX standard series
  • IX-NNN ultra compact robot

Servo Press

IAI Servo Press

The RCS3 Servo Press is a compact and low-thrust rod type actuator that can even be used for simple pressing. The high-precision position control enables easy adjustment of the push force and the position control. The servo press specification has been expanded. With a load cell equipped as a standard feature, precision push force control is now possible, which is typically difficult for oil-hydraulic equipment.

RCS3 side-mounted motor rod types have been added, allowing you to select from a 200N to 50000N range. The development of a large variety of models allows you to pick models that suit your applications. High-precision loading repeatability of ±0.5% is possible using the feedback data from the dedicated load cell installed in the actuator.

2-Axis Wrist Units

WU series 2-axis wrist units

IAI's Unique WU Series Wrist Unit design makes it light weight and compact in size. Equipped with a battery-less absolute encoder as standard, the WU Series is a low cost alternative, compared to 6-axis articulated robots making it ideal for reducing the cost of equipment. Diagonal approaches and tip swiveling can now be performed with minimum required axis configuration which until now required a vertically articulated robot.

  • Image-based code readers
  • Bar code scanners
  • Handheld scanners
  • RFID

Electric Grippers

IAI Electric Grippers

Motorized Electric Grippers Achieve High Grip Force and Long Stroke in a Compact Body. IAI Grippers come in 2 Finger and 3 finger configurations. The slider type with a guide promises excellent rigidity, while the lever type ensures easy gripping of the load because the levers open 180 degrees. Features include multi-positioning and adjustable grip strength.

  • GRT7 series thin grippers
  • RC series vertical grippers
  • GR series long stroke grippers
  • GR3LM series 3-finger grippers
  • GRLS series small lever type grippers

ELECylinder Belt Driven Actuators

WU series 2-axis wrist units

The Belt Driven EleCylinder is the latest generation of electric actuators for  simple, fast and cost-effective transition to pneumatic-free manufacturing. With only two end positions, these high-speed .long-stroke actuators exceed scope of performance as pneumatic actuators.

Thanks to the built-in controller, these actuators can be programmed very easily and also perform slow uniform speeds over the entire travel path. Even soft starting or braking are no longer a problem here.

In combination with the EleCylinder series the touch panel "TB-03" can communicate wirelessly with the new electrical actuators. 

  • Max Stroke: 2600mm
  • Max speed: 1600mm/s
  • Max Load: 20kg
