Robots Need Dexterity to Work With Bore Gauges

Collaborative robots with sufficient resolution and repeatability can automate measurements using standard manual bore gauges. They improve throughput, and deliver additional benefits beyond measuring inner diameters. Here’s how.

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...

ASQ Rochester Meeting – What We Learned

I have given a lot of demonstrations and presentations over the past year. One of the best parts is what I learn from the people I interact with. Take the Rochester, NY chapter of ASQ (American Society for Quality), for example. This is a group of people who are truly...

Video – Demo at NYMAT Machine Tool Corp

New Scale Robotics is working with NYMAT Machine Tool Corp in Fairport, NY to help Upstate New York manufacturers automate dimensional gaging using collaborative robots. We recently joined NYMAT and other automation tool suppliers at NYMAT's FOCUS ON AUTOMATION Tech...

Video: Three Gauges on One Robot for Automated Gauging

Automate your existing manual gauging methods with a DIY robotic kit. Q-Span® Workstation Kits work with New Scale's smart gripper/calipers and any number of standard gauges to automate your existing manual gauging methods. This video shows a Q-Span Workstation with...
