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 tiny 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.


Analytical Instruments. DNA sequencers, blood analyzers, and In-Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) systems, point-of-care diagnostics, wearable devices for home monitoring and telemedicine.

Clinical Imaging. Handheld optometry devices, wearable assisted vision devices, miniature cameras for medical imaging and robotic surgery, and handheld video microscopes.

Robotic surgery. Endoscope cameras, high-power laser scalpels, and handshake stabilization systems.

Other. Fluidic controls, implantable devices and manipulators for research.
