Affordable QC automation for small- and mid-sized companies

Q-Span™ Workstations deliver flexible, affordable automation for QC measurement tasks in high-mix, small-batch manufacturing.

Q-Span Systems can automatically pick small parts, measure multiple features on each, and sort / place the parts based on any measured dimension (for example pass, fail, bin). Automation dramatically improves consistency and repeatability.

Q-Span Systems can also automatically record all measured data to a PC for statistical analysis. Eliminate data entry errors!
