Parallel gripper is Universal Robots certified

– Victor, NY – Sept. 13, 2018 – New Scale Robotics, 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.

“We are delighted to receive endorsement from Universal Robots for the NSR-PG, created specifically to install and operate on UR robots in under 30 minutes,” stated David Henderson, CEO of New Scale Technologies.  “The gripper’s small size, high precision and seamless integration ensure maximum ROI for our customers.”

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.

Features of the NSR-PG-10-20-UR Precision Parallel Gripper

  • At 175 grams, it the lightest and smallest electric parallel gripper available for UR robots.
  • It installs with one connection to the tool I/O port; no external cables needed.
  • Finger positions are teachable: Manually move fingers to the desired positions and set them using the UR teach pendant.
  • Factory-installed fingers are easily removed, exchanged and modified to suit a variety of part shapes.
