New Scale's Piezoelectric Micro Motor Lens Actuator for Micro Cameras
New Scale’s patented lens actuator module measures less than 9 mm x 9 mm x 4 mm and has extremely low lens tilt of less than 0.1 degree, for high-resolution imaging in ultra-compact cameras. (Source: New Scale Technologies)
This technology is certainly very unique, especially with its ability to provide closed loop control and sensor inputs in such a small package. Plus htting the price targets required for these applications. Very impressive.
New Scale Technologies develops and manufactures custom precision motion systems for critical adjustments of optics in imaging devices and other micro positioning applications. They create disruptively small motion systems that enable design engineers to create smaller products which results in new levels of performance to phone cameras, medical devices. The UTAF piezoelectric lens actuator is one more addition to their list miniature devices.
Both traditional automation companies and startups are developing technologies to improve processes on the factory floor, while smart sensors and other IoT-related technologies are improving how products are handled during transport and across the supply chain.
