New Scale Robotics Earns CSI Certification from Universal Robots
Trusted UR+ partner to sell and deploy UR cobots with the New Scale Q-Span Workstation kits.
New Scale Roboticss’ CSI designation for Universal Robots (UR) enables it to sell and deploy UR collaborative robots with its Q-Span Workstation Kits for small part measurement.
New Scale Robotics is now a Certified System Integrator (CSI) for Universal Robots (UR), enabling the company to sell and deploy UR collaborative robots with its Q-Span Workstation Kits for small part measurement.
The Q-Span Workstation Kit is a UR+ Certified Application Kit, designed and manufactured by New Scale Robotics to work with the Universal Robots e-Series collaborative robots (cobots). The workstation automates the process of manually measuring small parts for quality control and recording the data for statistical analysis.
CSI status enables New Scale to offer one-stop shopping to its customers in high-mix, small-batch manufacturing. New Scale Robotics CEO David Henderson notes that his company is not a “traditional” CSI, in that ongoing consulting is not needed to use a Q-Span Workstation Kit.
“The Q-Span Workstation Kit is a do-it-yourself metrology solution that customers can easily deploy and redeploy, without ongoing CSI assistance,” Henderson says. “On the other hand, companies who want to deploy faster or get help with customization, such as integrating air gages, linear probes or other third-party tools, can leverage our expertise in metrology and UR cobots to do that. Either way, in delivering the kit and robot, we set customers up for success and give them the tools they need to run with it on their own as their production mix changes.”
The CSI designation is a certification of confidence. “New Scale Robotics has been part of the UR+ ecosystem since 2018, and we are pleased to strengthen our partnership,” says Silas Neale, channel development manager of Universal Robots. “Certified System Integrator status demonstrates our confidence in their knowledge of UR cobots and the URCaps platform, and their ability to optimize system performance and deliver value and service to the customer.”
Universal Robots has sold more than 50,000 collaborative robots for production environments around the world. The Q-Span Workstation Kit is the first UR+ Application Kit that enables cobots to automate QC measurement, improving quality and gage R&R while increasing throughput and capacity.
