August 24, 2022

The L.S. Starrett Company

The L.S. Starrett Co. will demonstrate the latest quality control inspection technology at IMTS (booth #135044). Supporting Industry 4.0, IoT, and the digital factory, attendees can see demonstrations of automated wireless measurement data capture and transmission from handheld wireless/ electronic gages via the new DataSure 4.0 Wireless Data Collection System, or from Vision Systems and Optical Comparators via integrated software.

Among the wide range of Starrett solutions highlighted at the show will be optical comparators, multi-sensor vision systems and video based inspection and measurement systems, DataSure 4.0 which increases the accuracy and speed of data collection, and the precision wireless/ electronic tools and gages. Special custom gage solutions, force testing systems, granite surface plates, and gage blocks will also be showcased.

Metrology systems solutions
The customizable AVX, featuring an innovative dual optical system, combining the best features of vision and touch-probe inspection, and designed to measure parts with a diverse range of features, sizes, and geometries will be on display alongside the AVR300 Multi-Sensor Vision System, featuring the largest field of view (FOV) to date for Starrett and ideal for repetitive measurements and automatic comparison to CAD files. The MetLogix Mx200 Digital Readouts (DRO) which combines an intuitive user experience with current touchscreen conventions and a wide range of functionality, and the Horizontal Digital Video Comparator will also be demonstrated.

Starrett will also discuss its Force Testing Systems, highlighting the flexible architecture that enables the range of force and material testing software programs to be compatible with its different test frames. The Starrett FMS-5000 single-column force testing system with L3 software for high-volume production and quality control testing will be demonstrated.

Precision tool gaging solutions
Starrett will display a range of wireless, electronic, and mechanical precision measuring tools, and will debut its new 2900 Series Digital Indicators. Models feature true absolute sensor technology that minimizes data loss, glass scales, +/- .00005" accuracy, and IP67 protection. The latest electronic and wireless micrometers, bore gages, calipers and height gages will also be demonstrated, supporting Industry 4.0 initiatives via DataSure wireless data acquisition.

Measurement standards, custom gaging and more
Rounding out the Starrett range of measuring solutions is the Tru-Stone engineered granite metrology bases featuring the Superior Red air bearing/ solid machine foundation base, gage blocks, surface roughness testers, and special gaging capabilities. Attendees are invited to bring their gaging and metrology challenges to the booth where Starrett engineers can provide technical support and guidance on pursuing customized solutions when conventional solutions will not suffice.
