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.
