New video: Our latest micro stage with integrated controller is optimized for high-volume production. It has 10 mm of travel and fast point-to-point (non-scanning) motion.
Latest patent covers advances in the UTAF Ultra-Thin Actuator Family of miniature piezoelectric motors
Allen Institute uses Neuropixels probes and New Scale manipulator to reveal how information flows across the brain
The Allen Institute of Brain Science posted a summary of recent work from its MindScope Program. The team uses New Scale Technologies’ Multi-Probe Micromanipulator System to position Neuropixels silicon neural probes at precise locations in a brain. The Neuropixels probes are used to record brain activity in an effort to understand how we perceive the visual world around us.
New Virtual Coordinate System (VCS) Software Simplifies Highly Accurate Positioning of Multiple Silicon Neural Probes Within a Common Stereotactic Coordinate Space
New software for planning, simulation and execution automatically calculates manipulator alignment based on desired probe trajectories. Fast, accurate and reliable setup of neural recording experiments improves productivity, frees more time for data collection.
New Scale Technologies’ David Henderson recently spoke at a Design News webinar on the miniaturization of motors and motion control. Watch on demand.
New Scale Technologies has been awarded its 19th US patent for a highly miniaturized, two-axis angular pointing device using its UTAF (Ultra-Thin Actuator Family) piezoelectric motor technology.
