New Scale Technologies’ Susan Henderson demonstrates a micro motion module at the company’s 20th anniversary open house. Watch the 30-second video for additional highlights.
New Scale Technologies celebrated its 20th anniversary in October 2022 with an open house at its design and manufacturing center in Victor, NY.
Founded in Victor by David Henderson, the company has earned 22 US patents for micro-motion technology. These include the SQUIGGLE® and UTAF piezoelectric ultrasonic motors and M3 “smart” motion modules. The smart modules integrate the company’s patented micro motors with position sensors, precision guides and bearings, and all motor drive and control circuits. With ultra-compact form factors, the modules are found in vision systems exploring the ocean’s deepest trenches, telescopes mapping the furthest stars, hand-held diagnostic instruments supporting remote medical teams, micro manipulators helping neuroscientists explore the workings of the brain, and much more.
The company formed its New Scale Robotics division in 2018, using its M3 technology to design and manufacture a robotic gripper/caliper tool. Today its robotic workstations help small-batch, high-mix manufacturers automate dimensional metrology to improve quality, productivity and competitiveness. With collaborative robots and New Scale’s teachable “plug-and-produce” software for metrology, the workstations use the robotic gripper/caliper and a wide variety of commercial gauges to automate quality control tasks.
New Scale Technologies and New Scale Robotics are ISO 9001:2015 certified, and New Scale Technologies is ISO 13485:2016 certified for medical device manufacturing.
