Embedded motion makes great products smaller

New Scale helps customers transform their large, expensive, complicated-to-use systems into small, affordable, easy-to-use instruments and devices. Our customers use our miniature motion modules to adjust micro optics or mechanical components within their handheld, portable and mobile systems. The modules have micrometer precision, work on battery power, perform at any orientation and resist shock, vibration and temperature extremes. With all controls built in, they are the smallest, easiest-to-integrate solution for product designers creating miniaturized systems for a range of markets.

extended reality (Xr, vR, AR, MR)

M3 modules deliver precision motion in wearable systems for extended (XR), virtual (VR), augmented (AR) and mixed (MR) reality devices.

They are light weight, small in size, use low power, and have embedded processing in the module. They enable motion features that enhance the quality and comfort of the XR experience.

Robotics and metrology

Applying our experience in micro-mechatronics and motion control systems, we have developed smart parallel grippers and robotic calipers for collaborative robots. We created a new division, New Scale Robotics, to better reach and serve the industrial automation market. This division focuses on automation of metrology and manual inspection in high-mix, small-batch manufacturing.
