New Scale Robotics precision parallel gripper gains Universal Robots certification

September 26, 2018 – New Scale Robotics, a manufacturer of precision smart grippers and end-of-arm tooling for cobots and a division of New Scale Technologies, has received Universal Robots (UR) certification for its NSR-PG-10-20-UR Precision Parallel Gripper. Universal Robots certification confirms that the smart gripper is fully compatible with UR collaborative robots and meets all published specifications.

The NSR-PG smart gripper is specifically intended for small robots and small parts. It is ideal for use with UR3, UR5 and UR10 collaborative robots for intricate part handling, measurement, sorting and assembly. At 175 grams, it the lightest and smallest electric parallel gripper available for UR robots. The operator can manually move the factory-installed, removable fingers to the desired positions and set them using the UR teach pendant. The tool installs with one connection to the tool I/O port.

The NSR-PG-10-20-UR gripper finger stroke is 20 mm for high flexibility in manufacturing environments. The gripper can measure part size with 30 micrometre precision. The maximum recommended part mass is 100 grams.
