IAI offers complete system solutions, instead of building a robotics system from scratch, design engineers can purchase fully-functional units from IAI and begin production sooner. Their straightforward programming language and pre-formatted products make it easy to integrate IAI products with other components. Buying off-the-shelf Intelligent Actuator products is more cost-effective than building your own, and puts your project into production sooner. IAI products provide the best price-to-quality value on the market. Founded in Japan in 1976, with American headquarters established in 1989, IAI designs, manufactures, and markets a complete line of motion control systems. As the established world leader in linear actuators and low cost, high performance SCARA robots, they are a leading source of advanced plug & play automation throughout North America and the world. 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.

The RCP4 electric cylinders feature longer strokes, faster speeds and larger load capacity.
A new body structure has improve load bearing and stability, doubling the load capacity and extending the obtainable stroke lengths to 500mm. The new design has also greatly reduces backlash and deflection by the guide rod.
The RCP4 is available in 3 slider type sizes and 2 rod type configurations.
Ease of Maintenance
RCP4 Slider-type mounting holes are interchangeable with RCP2 type. The RCP2 can be directly replaced with the RCP4
New Ultra-Compact Motorized Cylinder with 12mm Cross-Section and a body length as short as 60mm. Its high-speed performance with maximum acceleration/deceleration of 1 G and maximum speed of 300 mm/s is highly effective in reducing cycle time in a variety of systems.
The Mini Cylinder RCD easily achieves 3-point positioning and acceleration/deceleration rate adjustments, which are difficult to achieve using air cylinders. Push-motion operation similar to that available with air cylinders is also possible, and the force exerted during a push-motion operation is adjustable. The Mini Cylinder RCD is small enough to replace compact air cylinders used for short-stroke travel, pressing, hoisting and positioning.
- Ultra-compact size enables it to replace compact air cylinders
- High-speed performance with maximum acceleration/deceleration of 1 G and maximum speed of 300 mm/s
- Capable of 3-point positioning, acceleration rate adjustment, and pressing
