New Scale Robotics (Victor, NY) has introduced an electric parallel gripper targeting precision assembly and inspection for collaborative robots.
The company said that the NSR-PG-10-20 Precision Parallel Gripper is the smallest, most precise smart gripper available for collaborative robots including the UR3, UR5 and UR10 robots from Universal Robots (UR).
New Scale Robotics is a newly-formed division of New Scale Technologies.
David Henderson, CEO of New Scale Technologies, said: “We created this smart electric gripper specifically for agile automation with collaborative robots, using our extensive experience making small mechatronic motion systems. The company has created a new division and website to better reach and serve industrial automation distributors and end users.”
New Scale Robotics creates agile gripper solutions that address the fast-growing collaborative robot market, and the need for rapid deployment and re-deployment with minimum engineering effort.
At 175 grams, the NSR-PG-10-20 is the lightest and smallest electric parallel gripper available. The modular fingers can be modified to accept a variety of part shapes. Part size can be measured with 30 micrometer precision. The 20 mm stroke provides maximum flexibility. The gripper can handle workpieces up to a recommended maximum of 100 grams.
