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

Use a Q-Span System to pick, measure and place your parts for automated gauging. A workstation incorporates a variety of gauges to automate your existing, validated processes.

What gauges can you automate?

If you’re manually measuring parts with digital calipers, micrometers, thread gauges, linear probes, bore gauges, air gauges, laser micrometers, and other manual gauges – we can probably help.

Let’s get started!

Learn how to assess which parts and gauges to automate, define a robotic system that hits gauge R&R targets, and implement your first project using incremental automation for fast payback.  Download the free white paper, “Getting Started with Automated Dimensional Gauging,” or call (585) 924-4450 today.

Production Machining: Replace Repetitive Measurement With DIY Robotic Automation

After minimal training, a shop can learn how to use this robotic inspection system configured for a shopfloor application to supersede repetitive, time-consuming, high-mix gauging processes. It can then be redeployed for another application somewhere else in the...

When Part Gauging is a Bottleneck

 Defined processes are critical to continuous improvement in manufacturing. Key measurement points are identified and metrics are put in place to measure processes. The resulting data is meant to be used for process improvement. It is in the evaluation of the data...

The Cobot Ecosystem for Automated Gauging

Premium partners help New Scale Robotics deliver premium gauging systems, perfectly tailored to your application and ready to expand An advantage of collaborative robots (cobots) is the robust ecosystem of end-of-arm-tooling, sensing, and other components that...

Cobots Calm Labor Market Woes for High-Mix Manufacturers

For quality teams, automation addresses these challenges. 1. As skilled inspection staff are retiring, critical metrology know-how must be retained. 2. Labor costs, even at minimum wage, are too high to hire full-time manual inspectors, even if companies could find them. 3. Management demands a growing amount of accurate, real-time data to feed internal initiatives for continuous process improvement.

As Robotics Gain Hold, Here’s How to Manage Them

The pandemic has only fueled the worker shortage, prompting manufacturers to embrace automation in large numbers. Quality Magazine has published advice on how senior leadership can ensure that robots are implemented in a way that supports a problem-free transition to...
