Welcome to New Scale News, your monthly update on micro motion systems and applications.    
M3 embedded motion modules are enabling commercial success of smaller, more precise instruments. It's exciting to see so many of our OEM customers ramping up production of their innovative new products!  Here are a few examples.  Want to learn more?  Contact us today.
M3 customers ramping up production 
Standard M3 motion modules allow OEMs to create smaller, more precise instruments for a wide range of industrial, commercial and scientific applications. With only 3.3V input and all control electronics integrated inside, M3 modules let our customers get to market faster with high-performance handheld devices. 

Here are a few of the customer applications that have found commercial success and have been stepping up production. 
Super-resolution microscope
--  QUICK LOOK  --  
20-second video
Super-resolution microscopes achieve image resolution higher than the diffraction limit and are transforming optical microscopy.  One manufacturer achieves super-resolution through precise movement of micro optical elements using M3-LS Linear Smart Stages.  The smart stages were easy to integrate in a very small space and operate directly and seamlessly from the system PC.  The small stage size meets critical optical design requirements in this desk-top system
Shrinking spectroscopy instruments

An M3-L Linear Actuator shrinks the scanning mechanism that tunes the laser wavelength in a new industrial Raman spectroscopy instrument.  The actuator's small size, battery power and SPI digital interface are essential features in this hand-held instrument that identifies chemical and explosive hazards without having to open the suspect containers. 
High-performance lasers

An M3-FS Focus Module enables a manufacturer of high-performance laser light sources to achieve greater efficiency, power and beam quality while minimizing cost and system complexity.  The focus module provides a 16 mm clear aperture for a lens assembly and moves the assembly parallel to the optical axis with sub-micrometer closed-loop precision.  Zero clearance bearings minimize lateral shift and tilt under all operating conditions. 
Point-of-care blood analyzer
--  CASE STUDY  --
point-of-care analyzer
The M3-FS Focus Module is a key element in a backpack-portable blood analyzer used in resource-limited medical facilities.  The focus module moves a cytometer microscope objective to automatically compensate for non-flatness in the low-cost microfluidic sample cartridge. The result is accurate particle counts per unit volume of the target pathogen. This new "near patient" instrument brings  advanced medical care to communities without hospitals or testing laboratories. Read the case study ... 
Focusing for vision
--  QUICK LOOK  --
20-second video
Two OEMs are using the M3-F Focus Modules to save or enhance vision. One is an ophthalmic instrument that uses motorized focus to enhance diagnosis and detection of eye disease.  The other is a wearable headset for assisted vision that enables legally blind individuals to see again.  In both cases, these companies rely on the embedded M3 module as a small, precise and battery powered focus mechanism that is simple and fast to integrate into their systems
Investments, growth at New Scale
New Scale has invested heavily in equipment and facilities over the past two years, adding to our already substantial micro-precision manufacturing capabilities in the USA. With many customers increasing production this quarter, New Scale is on plan for 100% growth in sales of our standard M3 product line. We would like to thank our OEM customers for your continued business and look forward to bringing many additional customers into production this year.
