Pneumatics off - EleCylinder on!

Innovative electric axes for easy change to pneumatic-free automation

Quick and Easy Change to Pneumatic-free Automation

EleCylinder is the latest generation of electric actuators for easy entry or transition to the future technology of pneumatic-free manufacturing. With only two end positions, these offer the same scope of performance as the pneumatic actuators.

With and integrated controller, however, these can be freely programmed like all electrical actuators. Even soft starting or braking are no longer a problem here.

Movement between two positions

EleCylinders were developed for the movement between two points. Speed, acceleration and deceleration are adjustable in less than 5 minutes.  Also other facts speak for themselves:

  • Efficiency from 60% to 90% (at least 50% higher than pneumatic cylinders)
  • almost wear-free
  • Increased production safety as the function can not be changed by unauthorized third parties

Fast and easy programming

With integrated controllers EleCylinder actuators are very easy to program and depending on the application, process-speeds, acceleration and braking cycles are specified as well as the actual positions.

Like all electrical actuators, the new EleCylinders can effortlessly maintain slow, unfluctuating speeds throughout the entire stroke.

High-resolution Battery-free Absolute Encoders

The actuators of the new EleCylinder series also have high-resolution battery-free absolute encoders. So, the new product series embodies all the advantages of this technology: no need for homing operations or home sensors, no battery maintenance and nothing in its place and problem-free restart after emergency stops etc. The high position-repeatability of +/- 0.05 mm means extremely precise positioning.

New Teaching Pendant „TB-03“

In combination with the EleCylinder series this new Teaching-Pendant can now communicate wirelessly with the new electrical actuators. Amongst other things, the user benefits from the ability to easily reprogram actuators which are concealed behind fixed covers externally at any time.

Furthermore, the new Teaching Pendant can be used to program all other IAI electrical actuators via a conventional cable connection.
