Q-Span® Workstation Kits for Automated Small Part Measurement

Automate small part handling, digital caliper measurements and data logging

Pick, measure, and place parts with one robotic workstation

Q-Span® Workstation Kits let you automate QC measurements of small parts. The do-it-yourself robotic inspection tool offers fast ROI in high-mix, small-batch manufacturing. Easy to set up, easy to reconfigure for additional parts and processes.

Automation dramatically improves consistency and repeatability.

Pick small parts with the robotic gripper/calipers

Measure multiple dimensions in rapid succession
using up to three gripper/calipers on one robot

Sort parts based on measurements
(pass/fail, bin)

Record measurement data
for statistical analysis and process control

Flexible automation, fast ROI

Easily fit the workstation into existing work spaces and workflows

Increase staff skills and productivity, enable social distancing

Install quickly, change-over in minutes to measure different parts

Rapid return on investment (ROI) of less than 10 months

Measure small parts with precision

Handle small parts
up to 3.5 ounces (100 grams) and 3.94 inches (100 mm)

Measure with 0.0001 inches (2.5 μm) resolution
+/- 0.0002 inches (+/- 5 μm) repeatability
+/- 0.0008 inches (+/- 20 μm) full-scale accuracy

Q-Span® Workstation Application Kit

Each kit includes example parts and programs that you can use as a basis to develop your own part measurement processes.

1. Three robotic calipers / gripper tools on a multi-tool mount

2. Metrology fingers

3. Example parts and trays

4. Measurement and zero-reference fixtures with NIST-traceable gauge block

5.  URCaps Application with sample robot programs

6. Data Server Application to log data in real time, export for SPC

7. Mobile workstation table

8. Six-axis robot arm from Universal Robots
