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.
Q-Span Kit Application Assessment
Assessing the fit of this robotic inspection tool for your small part measurement application
In this paper we describe what types of part measurements can be automated using a Q-Span Workstation Kit.
We show how we use the tool to perform an application assessment, measuring the parts you send us and calculating the gage R&R you can expect. We discuss resolution, repeatability, comparative and full-scale accuracy, and instrument capability.
