SINGLE AXIS ACTUATORS, MULTI-AXIS CARTESIAN SYSTEMS AND SCARA ROBOTS
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.
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

7 Benefits of Electric Actuators
1. Multiple Positioning
With the ROBO Cylinder®, you can achieve positioning of up to 1,500 points and a repeatability of ±0.02mm.
Benefit - Use one assembly line to handle a variety of products and achieve higher quality production.
2. Push and Hold
The push force can be easily adjusted by changing the position data values. The push force can also be set to constant. This function is perfectly suited for press fit applications and parts holding.
Benefit - Push and hold hard or soft materials equally well without damaging your products. Great for press fit and clamping applications.
3. Acceleration / Deceleration Settings
Set the acceleration and deceleration independently on the ROBO Cylinder®.
Benefit - Improve cycle time and drastically reduce part defects. Produce more in less time.
4. Zone Output
The ROBO Cylinder® can output a signal when it reaches a preset range, all without a need for external sensors. The zone output function allows the ROBO Cylinder® to shorten cycle time, output a danger area signal and can be used for a variety of applications.
Benefit - Save yourself time, money and effort of adding cumbersome, external sensors.
5. Pause Input
Unlike pneumatic systems, ROBO Cylinders® are capable of stopping at any point of the stroke during operation.
Benefit - This allow for collision prevention and greater safety for operators and equipment.
6. Incremental / Decremental Moves
When performing continuous movement with uniform pitch, repetitive movement is possible from data of a single position.
Benefit - This function can speed up programming and reduce I/O count.
7. Speed Change During Movement
Easily set a position band and change your speed during movement.
Benefit - Improve cycle time and minimize product defects, resulting in higher quality production and ROI.
Types of Electric Actuators
The slider on the top of the main unit works in the shape of a standard electric actuator. Ideal for replacing the rodless air cylinders.
The table on the top of the main unit of Electric Actuator can be used for the actuating motion. Ideal for replacing the table type air cylinders.
Radial cylinder type of Electric Actuator can be replacement for rod-type air cylinder. Built-in ball circulation type linear guide allows it to receive moment load.
Rod type of Electric Actuator can be replacement for rod-type air cylinder. The work piece can be set using the thread part of the rod tip.
IAI is the established world leader in linear electric actuators and low cost, high-performance SCARA robots. With a full range of Robocylinders and Elecylinders IAI actuators are providing a more cost-effective, lower-maintenance, and significantly more programmable solution for users previously relying on inefficient and unreliable pneumatics products.
