DIY Automation

for small part measurement


The do-it-yourself (DIY) robotic quality inspection tool


Combine automated part handling, robotic caliper measurements, and automated data logging

  • Pick small parts
  • Measure multiple dimensions on each
  • Record data for statistical analysis
  • Place and sort parts based on real-time results

Improve quality and capacity

Fast implementation for high-mix, small batch manufacturing

  • 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™ Workstation Kit help your quality team?

Use a Q-Span Workstation Kit to pick, measure and place your small parts with up to three precision gripper/caliper tools on one collaborative robot

Can we help?

If you’re manually measuring small parts (up to about 4 inches) with digital calipers – we can probably help. Let us know what you’re trying to measure and we’ll do a FREE assessment of your part.
