Ultra-compact size has been achieved, with a cross-section of only 12 mm with a body length as short as 60 mm. The Micro Cylinder RCD is small enough to replace compact air cylinders used for short-stroke travel, pressing, hoisting, etc.
The Micro Cylinder RCD incorporates a newly developed brushless DC motor that generates sufficient torque despite its compact size. Its high-speed performance with maximum accelleration/deceleration of 1 G and maximum speed of 300 mm/s is highly effective in reducing cycle time in a variety of systems.
Capable of 3-point positioning, acceleration rete adjustment, and pressing
The Micro Cylinder RCD easily achieves 3-point positioning and acceleration/deceleration rate adjustments, which are difficult to achieve using air cylinders. Push-motion operation similar to that available with air cylinders is also possible, and the force exerted during a push-motion operation is adjustable.

Note 1: The rated speed may not be achieved, depending on the stroke.
Note 2: When using an external guide and a free joint.
Note 3: Value shown is the initial value, which may change depending on usage conditions because a lead screw is used.
Note 4: If positioning repeatability is required, take lost motion into account and perform positioning from only one direction.
