End-of-Arm Tooling Applications

Small, precise electric grippers for automated small-part assembly

New Scale Technologies has applied its expertise in highly miniaturized motion systems to the problem of end-of-arm tooling (EOAT) for precision small-part assembly.

Electric parallel gripper for automated small-part assembly systems

Applying M3 micro mechatronics module capabilities to micro grippers, New Scale is developing a new parallel electric gripper for small robots.  Preliminary specifications for this micro gripper include:

To be commercialized in 2016, this “all-in-one” micro-mechatronic module will meet the emerging needs for precision, speed and flexibility in end-of-arm tooling for small-part assembly systems. 

M3 Micro-Mechatronic Modules - smallest size, "all-in-one" simplicity

New Scale’s M3 micro-mechatronics modules are “all-in-one” motion systems, integrating a patented SQUIGGLE micro motor, ASIC driver, Hall-effect position sensor, guide bearing and microprocessor with embedded firmware into a miniature smart module. No separate electronics are required to achieve precision motion in small spaces. Examples include the M3-LS Linear Smart Stage, the M3-FS Focus Module and the M3-RS-U Rotary Smart Stage.
