New Scale Robotics is a 2020 RBR50 Innovation Award winner for its Q-Span Systems, which bring collaborative robots to the QC lab to automate measurement of small parts.
Robotics Business Review is the leading source of analysis, opinion, and research focused on global automation. Its annual RBR50 list celebrates forward-thinking companies and the original, impactful solutions they have created. Other companies on this year’s list include Universal Robots for its UR+ Application Kits, along with Boston Dymanics, iRobot and Microsoft.
Q-Span Workstations, designed for Universal Robots’ UR3e robots, are available as UR+ Application Kits with sample parts and trays to serve as a starting point for users to configure their system (see kit product sheet).
New Scale was honored in the Application and Market Innovation category, recognizing sector-specific, newly developed applications that deliver value, provide entry to new markets, or improve performance over existing approaches (i.e. improve productivity, increase quality, reduce cost, etc.).
Q-Span Workstations deliver on all of these points.
