New Scale Robotics has announced that its NSR-PG-10-20-URe Gripper/Caliper and NSR-MTM-3-URe Multi-Tool Mount have received UR+ Certification from Universal Robots (UR). With this certification, UR confirms that it has tested and approved the products to work with UR e-Series collaborative robots to provide fast deployment, simple programming and reliable operation.
The NSR-PG-10-20-URe Gripper/Caliper is the smallest parallel gripper and the first robotic digital caliper for collaborative robots. It leverages the UR e-Series’ high-speed RS-485 interface to deliver measurement precision of 2.5 µm (.0001 inch) and enable control of multiple tools on one robot.
The NSR-MTM-3-URe Multi-Tool Mount allows up to three tools to be mounted and controlled on UR’s smallest e-Series robots, including the UR3e. This allows the robot to perform multiple processes with fewer large moves, improving throughput and productivity.
Both components are part of New Scale Robotics’ new Q-Span Workstations, combining robotic pick-and-place with automated measurement of small parts and logging of data for analysis. Configured with a UR3e collaborative robot, Q‑Span Workstations easily integrate into existing workflows in the QC lab or on the production floor of high-mix, small-batch manufacturing environments. Q-Span Workstations allow QC teams to automate the tedious manual process of measuring parts, improving throughput and data accuracy.
Q-Span Automated Small-Part Measurement Systems help customers reduce errors, increase throughput, and better utilize skilled labor in QC measurement inspection. Q-Span Systems automate part handling, digital caliper measurements and QC data logging with one easy-to-use robotic workstation. Q-Span Workstations fit into existing work spaces and workflows and deliver ROI in less than 10 months.
