Early Stage Venture Profile: New Scale Technologies

New Scale Technologies creates disruptively small motion systems based on its patented piezoelectric SQUIGGLE® motor, the world’s smallest linear motor.
SQUIGGLE motor technology

CEO and CTO: David A. Henderson Location: New York
Venture is: B-Round
Industry: Electronics

This ultrasonic motor is smaller, more precise, less expensive, more robust and more power-efficient than other micro motors. New Scale’s micro motors and micro-actuator modules enable design engineers to create smaller products including mobile phone cameras, electronic locks and intelligent fasteners, nano-scale fluid control including lab-on-a-chip systems, medical devices including miniature drug pumps and endoscopes, optics and imaging systems, automotive modules, lasers, aerospace and defense systems, cryogenic and MRI-compatible instruments, and consumer electronics including micro fuel cells.

New Scale Technologies recently told TechConnect that they received $6 million in funding in January from its strategic partner austriamicrosystems, a leading analog IC provider, which enables New Scale to produce complete closed-loop micro motion systems incorporating tiny drivers and position sensors. The company was also awarded a third U.S. patent for its SQUIGGLE® motor technology and applications.
