Small, Precise Robotic Grippers

The NSR-PG-10-20 Precision Parallel Gripper from New Scale Robotics is an electric parallel gripper targeting precision assembly and inspection with collaborative robots (cobots). It is the smallest, most precise smart gripper available for collaborative robots including the UR3, UR5, and UR10 robots from Universal Robots (UR). The agile gripper addresses the need for rapid deployment and re-deployment of cobots with minimum engineering effort. They can be installed and begin manipulating parts in a few minutes. The application software is quickly and seamlessly “teaches and re-teaches” new gripper commands and synchronizes with robot motion. The grippers include sensors and electronics for provide force control, size measurement, and error detection. The compact and easy-to-use grippers minimize cables, tubing and external electronics. THIs version also uses the newest and smallest collaborative robot arms.

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 $3,600 gripper handles workpieces up to a recommended maximum of 100 grams.
