New gripper targets smallest collaborative robots

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.
