IAI North American Headquarters in Torrance, CA, opened in December of 2000. These expanded facilities have enabled us to increase our inventory and add to our dedicated staff of support engineers. Visit our sales offices page for information on other IAI facilities.
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 electric actuators and low cost, high performance SCARA robots, we provide over half of all linear actuators sold in Japan and 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.
About Our Name: Although our official name is IAI America, Inc., many people still know us as Intelligent Actuator, Inc. While the name may have changed, the high quality of our products and support remains the same.
