Logo IAI

Intelligent Actuator (IAI) is a leader in linear electric actuators and low cost, high performance SCARA robots. IAI is also leading the transition away from pneumatics to cost-effective, low-maintenance, and fully-programmable electric cylinders.

Featured Technology


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.

  • Start and end points can be set at any value
  • Built-in controller requires no control panel space
  • Reduces electric bills, the higher the operational frequency, the greater the savings

IXA SCARA – Fastest in the Industry!

The high-speed IXA SCARA Robot holds the fastest cycle times and yet achieves a lower price than previous SCARA models. The arch motion smoothly blends both horizontal and vertical motion to accomplish continuous high-speed cycle times. The new SCARA robot is even more affordable than previous models. Plus, it offers even better performance and functionality.

  • Fastest in the Industry
  • Achieves lower price
  • Low Vibration, accurate positioning
  • Equipped with a battery-less Absolute Encoder as standard

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

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

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. 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.


The competitively priced ROBO Cylinder IK Series is the multi-axes solution to your automation needs. The ROBO Cylinder IK Series multi-axes kit includes everything needed for fast and easy assembly. The ICS Series provides a complete system solution! The ICS consists of various combinations of 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.


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

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.


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.


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

RCP2-RT series motorized rotary actuators with maximum rotational angle of 300 to 360 degrees with 24V stepper motor or 230V servo motor. These rotary actuators feature speed and acceleration control for smooth starting and stopping. 512 points available for multi-positioning applications. Available in both vertical and flat types the RCP2 ROBO Cylinder Rotaries come in 3 sizes to fit your application.

  • Horizontal or vertical construction
  • Standard stroke up to 330 degrees
  • Multiple-version to 9999 degrees
  • Maximum torque up to 4.6 Nm
  • Complete with controller (PCON).

TTA Series tabletop robot is equipped with a battery-less absolute encoder. This means that home-return is not required and no external home sensor is required since home-return is not necessary. Removal of items being worked on is also not necessary, even after an emergency stop, and the troublesome creation of home-return programs is not necessary even when stopping inside of a complex machine.
