New Scale Robotics will demonstrate its Q-Span Robotic Gaging System live and in person at the Quality Show October 26-28, 2021 in Rosemont, Illinois.
The demos will show how this do-it-yourself robotic kit can help high-mix, small-batch manufacturers to quickly and easily automate their existing manual gaging methods.
Three gages on one robot (booth #832)
In booth #832, New Scale will show its Q-Span Workstation with one collaborative robot, automatically measuring small parts using three different gages:
- A precision gripper/caliper tool (New Scale Robotics NSR-PG Gripper/Caliper)
- A bore gage (Marposs)
- A drop gage (Marposs)
In addition to measuring the part’s diameter, the robotic gripper/caliper tool moves parts between a conveyor and the measuring fixtures for the different gages.
The Q-Span System digitizes all inspection data from the three gages into one output. The teachable “plug-and-produce” software on the Universal Robot teach pendant is as easy to use as a smart phone.
The Q-Span Workstation can be used in a quality lab, or on the factory floor for in-process gaging. It improves throughput and reduces inspection costs.
Automating air gaging (booth #712)
In booth #712, Western Gage will demonstrate a Q-Span Workstation automating “machine tending” of their air gage. In this demo, the Q-Span Workstation’s robotic gripper precisely places each part on the air gage, automatically records the measurement, and moves the part to a pass, fail or sorted location.
