New White Paper: Innovations in Small-Part Measurement

POSTED 07/20/2020

New Scale Robotics has released a new white paper exploring the evolution of QC measurement techniques for small parts. The paper highlights recent innovations that allow collaborative robots to do QC measurements, helping to bring the benefits of robotics from the manufacturing floor and into to the QC lab for high-mix, small-batch manufacturers.

Like their counterparts in production, robots in QC automate dull and repetitive work, keep humans safe from injury, and deliver more consistent results.

They further enable automated data collection. Today, 75% of manufacturers—including some of the world’s largest—still collect QC measurement data manually. Of these, 47% still rely on pencil and paper.

Collaborative robotis in the QC lab give manufacturers a new competitive advantage in the race to maintain high quality and reduce costs.

The white paper describes:

  •     How robotic calipers evolved from manual gages and digital calipers
  •     The benefit of smart gages and robotic calipers including electronic data capture
  •     Comparative capabilities of machine vision, laser-based scanners, CMMs, robotic calipers, and Q-Span Systems for QC measurement of small parts.
