Our ROBO Cylinders® are highly efficient electric actuators that will cut down on running costs and give you substantial ROI.  Not only will you save on energy costs but ROBO Cylinders® typically last 10 times longer than similar air cylinders.  Why stop there?  Here are 7 more benefits that you need to know about.


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.
