New Scale Technologies, Inc. has launched a new division, New Scale Robotics,  to design and manufacture precision smart grippers for today’s smallest collaborative robots.

New Scale Robotics’ precision gripper solutions address the fast-growing collaborative robotics market and the need for agile automation, or rapid deployment and re-deployment in the factory with minimum engineering effort.

“New Scale is well positioned to address this market, with more than 15 years of experience and numerous patents for precision micro motors and motion control system development,”  said David Henderson, CEO of New Scale Technologies. “The new division, with its dedicated website, allows us to better reach and serve the industrial automation market including collaborative robot manufacturers, system integrators, distributors, and end users.”

New Scale products feature unmatched miniaturization, micrometer-scale resolution, and fully-integrated microelectronics with intelligent firmware. New Scale Robotics’ first product, the NSR-PG-10-20 Precision Parallel Gripper, is the smallest, most precise smart gripper available for collaborative robots including the UR3, UR5 and UR10 robots from Universal Robots (UR).
