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.

See it in action!
