Automated Gauging is IMTS 2022 Highlight for New Scale Robotics

In booth demos and a conference session, New Scale applications specialists will help QC teams explore the benefits of using collaborative robots for gauging in high-mix manufacturing

New Scale Robotics will highlight its Q-Span® Automated Gauging System at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS 2022) Sept. 12-17 in Chicago. Continuous live demonstrations in the booth will show this flexible robotic workstation measuring parts and collecting the data using three common gauges. A Monday morning conference session will help QC teams explore how to get started and what benefits to expect from gauging automation.

Booth Demos: Automating Micrometer, Caliper and Bore Gauge Measurements
New Scale Robotics is in Booth #135414, Quality Assurance Pavilion, East Building, Level 3

The Q-Span Workstation incorporates existing manual gauges and gauging techniques to automate QC inspection in high-mix, small-batch manufacturing. A collaborative robot from Universal Robots supports ease of deployment and flexibility. Control software and tooling by New Scale Robotics delivers ease of use for metrology labs and factory floor workers. For more information about the Q-Span System see
Conference Session: How to Get Started with Automation
A Monday morning conference session, led by New Scale Robotics' Stefan Friedrich, will detail how manufacturers can get started with QC automation, using collaborative robots to automate dimensional gauging. The session is recommended for managers in small to medium-sized manufacturing organizations; no prior automation experience is needed.

Topics will include:
• Getting started with QC automation
• Best practices for implementing collaborative robots in a quality department
• Automation with existing shop floor gauges
• Building a business case and assessing return on investment

About New Scale Robotics
New Scale Robotics helps manufacturers automate manual gauging. Our Q-Span® Workstations combine measurements from a wide variety of gauges with robotic part handling and automated data logging. They improve efficiency, capacity, and real-time reporting of quality departments. Based on flexible and teachable collaborative robots, Q-Span Workstations are do-it-yourself (DIY) automation kits that fit into existing workflows. They help quality teams reduce errors, increase throughput, and better utilize skilled labor in small-batch, high-mix manufacturing. Easy to deploy without specialized training, they deliver return on investment (ROI) in less than ten months.

New Scale Robotics is a division of New Scale Technologies, Inc. near Rochester, NY. We have nearly 20 years of experience delivering small, precise and smart embedded motion systems. Our products feature unmatched miniaturization, micrometer-scale resolution, and fully-integrated microelectronics with intelligent firmware. We enable our customers to achieve higher performance with smaller size and faster development time.
