New Scale Technologies

New Scale

New Scale Technologies M3 micro-stages and actuators are all-in-one “smart modules” with built-in controllers: easy to integrate into handheld and portable instruments. They enable smaller, smarter imaging systems, scientific instruments, medical devices, aerospace and defense systems and more.

What's Inside An M3 Module? 

The M3 platform

Smart modules and microstages built on the M3 (micro-mechatronics) platform incoporate:

  • A SQUIGGLE or UTAF piezoelectric micro motor
  • A motor driver ASIC
  • A position sensor (encoder)
  • An on-board microprocessor for PID control
  • A customized motion guide assembly and housing to suit your OEM application

You provide simple motion commands over a standard serial interface. It’s all inside!
