Q-Span System


Q-Span™ Automated Small-Part Measurement Systems help you automate digital calliper measurements, data logging and part handling. You can pick, measure, and place small parts with one robotic workstation!

SKU: N/A Categories: , , Product ID: 2348


Measure multiple dimensions in rapid succession
using up to three grippers/callipers on one robot

Sort parts based on measurements
(pass/fail, bin)

Record measurement data
for statistical analysis and process control

Easily fit the system into existing workspaces and workflows

Increase staff skills and productivity

Reduce the risk of repetitive stress injuries

Install quickly, change-over in minutes
to measure different parts

Handle small parts
up to 3.5 ounces (100 grams) and 3.94 inches (100 mm)

Measure with 0.0001 inches (2.5 μm) resolution
< 0.0002 inches (5 μm) repeatability and < 0.0006 inches (15 μm) accuracy

System delivery includes configuration with the robot,
demonstration of first part inspection, and staff training

Rapid return on investment (ROI) of less than 10 months

Flexible automation solution for QC measurement tasks

Q-Span™ Workstations deliver flexible automation for QC measurements of small parts. They offer fast ROI in high-mix, small-batch manufacturing.

Q-Span Systems can automatically pick small parts, measure multiple features on each, and sort/place the parts based on any measured dimension (for example pass, fail, bin). Automation dramatically improves consistency and repeatability.

Q-Span Systems can also automatically record all measured data to a PC for statistical analysis. Eliminate data entry errors!
