Q-Span Gaging Systems – Beyond Calipers
Automate Your Existing Manual Gaging Methods
Q-Span® Workstations are robotic tools that automate dimensional metrology and make manufacturing companies more competitive. Now you can easily automate part handling and gaging of critical dimensions in high-mix, small- batch manufacturing.
These do-it-yourself (DIY) robotic workstations seamlessly combine:
- A collaborative robot from Universal Robots
- New Scale’s innovative smart gripper/calipers
- Other standard gages
- Teachable “plug-and-produce” software – As easy to use as a smartphone
Use Your Preferred Inspection Tools
Incorporate your preferred metrology tools from your trusted and approved suppliers. A Q-Span Workstation can work with tools from nearly all suppliers to automate your existing manual processes.
Contact gaging tools include:
- Bore gages
- Height gages
- Pin gages
Non-contact inspection tools include:
- Air gages
- Laser micrometers
- Vision systems
Improve Process Control, Yield and Throughput
Q-Span Workstations include easy-to-use software for robotic control and data collection. Digitize inspection data from multiple gages into one output.
The flexible workstation lets you automate in-process gaging on the manufacturing floor. Easily generate real-time inspection data for up to 100% of your parts to reduce scrap and inspection costs.
Workforce challenges? Solved.
Q-Span Workstation Configuration and Set Up
Should you prefer more assistance with the initial setup, we’re here for you. We offer:
Our applications engineers can assess your parts and help with a system correlation study.
We can help you design and build part trays and metrology fingers specific to the parts and dimensions you need to measure.
We will create the programs or “recipes” for your Q-Span Workstation to pick, measure and place your specific parts according to your metrology processes.
