Automating Small Part Measurement Inspection with Cobots
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14 — 7:00 p.m. ET
Collaborative robots are finding success in high-mix manufacturing environments. They enable flexible automation for material handling, machine tending, and pick-and-place. Now manufacturers are starting to see the value that collaborative robots can bring to Quality Assurance, as well.
Like the rest of the plant, the QA and QC functions can use collaborative robots to automate boring, repetitive tasks; reduce errors; and retain talent. In this session we explore how managers who are responsible for quality can use collaborative robots to effectively automate small part measurement. We will discuss:
- What types of parts can be measured using collaborative robots
- Robotic calipers, multi-tool mounts and fixtures for QC measurements
- How to use the data for in-process decisions, such as sorting parts into pass/fail bins or alerting operators to process drift
- How to log data for later analysis
- How a collaborative robot fits into existing QC labs and workflows
- The return on investment of collaborative robots in QC/QA

ASQ World Conf. on Quality & Improvement (WCQI)
AVAILABLE ON DEMAND
WCQI 2021 celebrated 75 years of bringing quality professionals together to transform people, processes, and organizations. The event was held May 24-28, 2021.
Watch our on-demand session, From Manual Gages to Robotic Calipers: Who, Why and How (Session D64). Learn to identify potential benefits of robotic calipers, make the business case for implementing agile inspection tools, and follow best practices for implementing automated part inspection in high-mix, small-batch manufacturing.
How it’s Measured: Contact Measurement for Small Parts in Medical Devices
AVAILABLE ON DEMAND
Join New Scale Robotics and Universal Robots for this webinar. Quality Control is one of the most important parts in medical device manufacturing, but one of the last to be automated. Collaborative robots are transforming manufacturing and now entering into the quality space using technologies that automate contact measurement, data collection, sorting: all with a high precision and repeatability.
When you attend this webinar, you will:
- Understand how collaborative robots can be used within the Quality Control area
- Hear about the importance of automating contact measurement
- Review use cases and applications for medical device industry
- See live robot demonstration with automated gripper calipers
Webinar: Automating Manual Part Inspection with Collaborative Robots
Manufacturers are using collaborative robots to lower costs and reduce production errors in a wide variety of applications. Quality departments are often last in line to benefit from automation, even though they have many manual, repetitive and mundane tasks that are excellent candidates for automation.
Join us for this webinar to find out how a Q-Span Workstation and collaborative robots can help your QC department automate manual inspection tasks to increase inspection throughput, collect more accurate data and improve gage R&R. You will learn:
- How to use collaborative robots to automate QC measurement
- A detailed description of how the Q-Span System takes measurements, incorporating robotic pick-and-place
- How to qualify Q-Span Workstation tool capability for parts and processes in small-part manufacturing
