The ROBO Cylinder® electric actuator is a flexible, intelligent, and economical, ballscrew linear actuator from Intelligent Actuator. The ROBO Cylinder ® offers:

  • 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
  • Long life expectancy (5,000km)
  • Low Power Consumption (Compared to Air Cylinder Compressors)
  • A One-Year Warranty
  • Prices start as low as $560



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.

Offering custom control over position, speed, acceleration, deceleration, and torque, allowing for mid-move velocity changes, and control from a PLC, the ROBO Cylinder® is a versatile and easy-to-use alternative to pneumatic cylinders.

ROBO Cylinders are available in a wide variety of configurations to suit the requirements of your specific application. The main variations are found in the basic body construction and the type of motor employed.

The new and improved RCP5, RCP4, RCP3, & RCP2 electric actuators & ERC3, ERC2 electric actuators utilize a hybrid stepper motor ideal for low-speed, high-thrust applications. For constant thrust across a wider range of speed, RCS3, RCS2 electric actuators, which employ AC servo motors, are ideal. Both the RCP4 and RCS3 series of linear positioning actuators are available in an extensive array of rod, slider, and flat type configurations, accommodating a wide variety of application requirements.

The RCP4 and RCS3 actuators have different characteristics. The RCP4 actuators have higher payload capabilities at lower velocities. As the payload increases the RCP4 actuator will start decreasing in velocity according to its pulse motor torque curve. The RCS3 actuators will maintain a constant velocity throughout it's payload rating. Once the payload rating has been exceeded the AC servo motor will cause the controller to fault out.

Depending on ballscrew lead, all ROBO Cylinder® actuators are available in high-, medium- and low-speed models. The Slider type is capable of speeds up to 1000mm per second, and the Rod type up to 800mm per second.

ROBO Cylinders are typically used in single axis applications for simple point to point positioning.  They may also be integrated into multiple axis Cartesian positioning systems from Intelligent Actuator.
