Innovations in Small Part Measurement
From manual gages to robotic calipers: How innovation has improved repeatability, reproducibility, throughput, and job satisfaction
This white paper explores the evolution of QC measurement techniques, including recent innovations in end-of-arm tooling that allow collaborative robots to perform QC measurements. Like their counterparts in production, collaborative robots in QC automate dull and repetitive work, keep humans safe from injury, and deliver more consistent performance. They improve measurement repeatability and reproducibility as well. With these innovations, collaborative robots give manufacturers a new competitive advantage in the race to maintain high quality and reduce costs.
