It's amazing what you can learn in a decade. One thing we learned is: design engineers don't really want tiny motors. 

Surprising? Not really: Most engineers want motion systems that simply work in their instruments, so they can pursue their own innovations -- rather than getting bogged down with unfamiliar motors, mechanics, drivers and control systems. 

That's why we applied our micromechatronic know-how and experience to create our M3 modules. Read more below, and please  email us  or comment on LinkedIn to let us know what you think. 

Advances in micromechatronics promote all-in-one positioning modules

Smart motion technologies can reduce system size and simplify integration, enabling smaller photonic instruments with full performance. 

Advances in microactuators, microelectronics and micromechatronics are enabling a new class of all-in-one "smart" positioning modules for photonics system miniaturization. Many of these inventions stem from the mobile phone industry demands to pack more features into smaller spaces while using less power. 

Now these smart motion capabilities are creating exciting opportunities for reduced size and unmatched performance in handheld, portable and mobile instruments. For analytical instruments based on spectroscopy and spectrometry, miniaturization requires substantial.... Continue reading at or  get a PDF.

M3-LS Linear Smart Stage wins category

New Scale just won the 2015 ECN Impact Award  for  Electromechanical / Mechanical Devices with  our M3-LS Linear Smart Stage, one of our micromechatronic modules. Other category finalists were BEI Kimco Magnetics, CUI Inc., EAO Corp., Harting, Schurter and Southco.  

Finalists in other categories included ams, Maxim, ON Semiconductor, Freescale, Tektronix and Texas Instruments. 

At the awards ceremony at the EDS 2015 Summit, the judges expounded upon the fact that they "looked for innovation, not merely repackaging of existing ideas and/or components." They emphasized the rewards of risk-taking, since absent risk-taking nothing improves.
