Introducing Q-Span Gauging Systems

How do Q-Span Gauging Systems help your quality teams?  Find out in this two-minute video.

Seminar: 5 Steps to Automated Gauging

Learn how to identify, manage, and deploy automation, in QC labs and on the shop floor, using an incremental approach for fast ROI and lower risk (registration required).

How to Cost-Justify QC Automation

Learn how to calculate payback period and return on investment for automated gauging technology by considering your current costs, time spent on each process, and total costs for the investment.

Q-Span® Workstations – Case Studies and Demonstrations

Case Study: Orchid Orthopedics (2:48)

See how this medical contract manufacturer automated QC inspection of its machined surgical drills, quickly saving more than 50 hours/week.

Four Gauges, One Robot (1:36)

This video shows a Q-Span Workstation with four gauges – a thread gauge, a drop gauge, a bore gauge, and a robotic caliper – on one collaborative robot.

Case Study: OptiPro Systems (3:55)

See how OptiPro systems helps users of its CNC optical grinding machines do in-process QC tests. (Opens in a new window at Universal-Robots.com)

Q-Span Workstation with Air Gage (1:02)

A Q-Span Workstation automatically inserts and removes parts on an air gauge to automate measurement and data collection.

Q-Span Workstation Online Demo (19:28)

We offer live, interactive demonstrations of the Q-Span Workstation, using online meeting tools when in-person is not possible. Here’s an example.

Robotic caliper/gripper calibration (1:39)

Here’s how we automated final inspection and calibration of our own robotic caliper/gripper, using a collaborative robot in our QC area.

Q-Span System Live Demo at PMTS 2023 (1:27)

We met with Production Machining at the Precision Machining Technology Manufacturing Show and enojoyed doing a demo for their video team.

NYMAT Machine Tool Demo (2:04)

Check out these highlights from our presentation at NYMAT Machine Tool Corp’s FOCUS ON AUTOMATION Tech Brief Seminars and Open House.

Machine tending and in-line inspection (full case study)

An NSR-PG Gripper/Caliper on a UR3e cobot performs machine tending and part sorting in conjunction with a Zeiss CMM. Developed with Axis New York and OptiPro.

In-line inspection in optics fabrication (short)

Optipro uses the NSR-PG Gripper/Caliper to combine machine tending with new in-line measurement inspection capabilities on a single collaborative robot.

Gripping, Measuring, and Part Handling

How It's Measured: QC Inspection

This video series demonstrates how you can automate QC measurement of parts. We take you step by step through some common part features found in high-mix manufacturing.

URe gripper + multi-tool system

See how our multi-tool mount and NSR Devices software let you easily control three of our newest NSR-PG-10-20-UR3e precision grippers in this automated metrology application.

Pick and Place Demo

Demo of a pick-and-place application by Numatic Engineering. Featuring the NSR-PG Precision Parallel Gripper and Cognex machine vision camera on a Universal Robots UR3 cobot.

Part Handling

This video shows the NSR-PG gripper picking parts from a vibratory bowl. Demonstration by Numatic Engineering.


What exactly is a Q-Span Workstation?

Follow along as we set up a scenario to show potential time savings, improvement to worker morale, and – perhaps most importantly – the ability to get better, more consistent data about your parts.
