Mini-Robo-Cylinder

Mini RoboCylinder (space saving)
Mini RoboCylinder (space saving)
The Mini Table Compact type RCA2-TC3N has dimensions smaller than a business card.

The new Mini RoboCylinder is an achievement in small electromechanical cylinders. It incorporates a newly developed motor, and its significantly reduced length, width and height make it comparable in size to air cylinders.

The Mini RoboCylinder is the perfect replacement for air cylinders in systems that previously could only use air cylinders due to size constraints.

Shaped like an air cylinder and easy to use

The new RoboCylinder is available in shapes similar to air cylinders.

Users accustomed to the operation of pneumatic systems are able to use the new RoboCylinder effortlessly.

Miniaturzylinder

Abundant variations

Choose from such models as the Slider type, Rod type, Table type, and Linear Motor type that best fit your manufacturing needs.

Mini Slider Type

The slider on the main body moves back and forth until it is positioned..

  • The motor can easily perform switching operations for the unit model.
  • Select from Reversing type with a reduced total length and Slim Straight type (Coupling type).

Used for jig and workpiece positioning, table travel, etc.

Mini Rod Type

The rod extends and retracts from the main body, gets into position and presses.

  • Select from Slim Motor Unit types and Short Length types having greatly reduced overall length.
  • Select from Guide types with highly rigid/linear built-in guides and Non-Guide types having drastically miniaturized main body sizes.


Used for raising/lowering products and jigs, pushing, clamping, etc.

New PSEP/ASEP controllers designed exclusively for 2-point and 3-point positioning
PSEP/ASEP controller

Unlike conventional controllers, the PSEP/ASEP require only a few movement positions. These “Simple, Easy Positioner” controllers are for applications where the actuator travels only between two or three points, which is usually the case with air cylinders.

If you have been using air cylinders and are unhappy with the long time needed to change movement positions or want to stop actuator movement between two points, you can use the RoboCylinder with PSEP/ASEP controllers. We also have an IP53 rated dustproof type that can be placed near the actuator for operation as is done with solenoid valves.

PSEP/ASEP controllers are not just for the new Mini RoboCylinder lineup. They can also be used with existing RoboCylinders. Existing controllers can also be used with the new Robo Mini Cylinders. Please use them according to the application.

Operates using the same signals used for air cylinder solenoid valves.

PSEP/ASEP operating methods

PSEP/ASEP controllers can be operated with the same signals used for air cylinder solenoid valves.

Solenoid valves come in two types: Single solenoids and Double solenoids. The PSEP/ASEP supports signals for both.
