Introducing Q-Span™ Automated Small-Part Measurement Systems

Automate digital caliper measurements, data logging and part handling


The Q-Span™ System is a NEW QC solution for high-mix, small batch manufacturing.

  • Pick and measure small parts with one collaborative robot
  • Sort and place parts based on measurements
  • Record data for statistical analysis
  • Automate in-line inspection and process control

Improve quality and capacity

This affordable automation system boosts your existing QC team’s capacity.

  • Return on investment in less than 10 months
  • Improve inspection accuracy
  • Increase staff skills and reduce repetitive stress injuries

Watch: How does a Q-Span™ System help your quality team?

Pick, measure and place small parts with up to three precision gripper/caliper tools on one collaborative robot

Get started today!

If you’re manually measuring small parts (up to about 4 inches) with digital calipers – we can probably help. Learn more, or call us to get a free assessment of your part. Call (585) 924-4450 today.
