Automate Manual Gauging

Q-SPAN® WORKSTATIONS

The do-it-yourself (DIY) robotic gauging tool

Pick-measure-record-and-place

Combine automated part handling, robotic dimensional gauging, and automated data logging

  • Pick parts
  • Measure with robotic calipers and other gauges
  • Record data for statistical analysis
  • Place and sort parts based on real-time results

Improve productivity and process control

Fast implementation for high-mix, small batch manufacturing

  • Return on investment in less than 10 months
  • Improve gauge repeatability and reproducibility
  • Reduce scrap with improved traceability

Watch: How does a Q-Span® Gauging System 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. Additional gauges can be incorporated as needed.

Can we help?

If you’re manually measuring small parts with digital calipers and other manual gauges – we can probably help. Let us know what you’re trying to measure, and we’ll do a FREE assessment of your part.

Q-Span® Gauging System Automates Measurement Inspection

Do-it-yourself robotic workstation incorporates existing manual gauges to increase throughput and process control in high-mix, small-batch manufacturing operations.

Automated Metrology 101: Adding Robotics & Quality to Manufacturing Education

New Scale Robotics teamed up with the NCATC (National Coalition of Advanced Technology Centers) to talk about how collaborative robots are used in manufacturing to automate quality control processes, and how NCATC and New Scale see their role in advanced technology workforce development.

Using an LVDT as a Robotic Micrometer or Automated Height Gauge

Collaborative robots can be used to automate measurements currently made with manual calipers, micrometers and height gauges. In this article, we’ll look at how to automate each of these manual gauging tools.

Flexibility is key in high-mix manufacturing

When making a high mix of products in small batches, automation systems need to be as adaptable as humans are. That’s what makes collaborative robots perfect in high-mix manufacturing – for QC as well as production tasks. VIDEO:  A Q-Span Workstation is designed for...
