Starrett’s Automated Metrology and Other Inspection Solutions to be Featured at EASTEC 2023
Starrett will demonstrate pattern recognition and automated inspection on several metrology systems at EASTEC.
Posted: March 9, 2023
The L.S. Starrett Company, a leading global manufacturer of precision metrology systems, measuring tools and gages, and more, has announced it will be featuring the automated inspection capabilities of its metrology and force measurement systems, and will also highlight custom gaging solutions at EASTEC Booth #3244 at Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield, MA from May 16-18 this year.
Starrett video-based measurement systems combine high-resolution images, powerful intuitive software and precision mechanical platforms to deliver superb accuracy and repeatable measurement results. Automatic edge detection or video edge detection locates edges of parts being measured, enabling go/no-go comparisons to an engineering design, with no need for Mylar overlays. This dramatically increases measurement throughput while eliminating operator subjectivity.
Starrett will demonstrate pattern recognition and automated inspection on several metrology systems at EASTEC including:
- Recently enhanced 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.
- HDV Horizontal Digital Video Comparator, which combines the best features of vision and optical comparator technology.
- HD400 Horizontal Dual Lens Comparator offering a two-lens mount, enabling instant switching between two magnification lenses or video camera adapter.
Starrett will also showcase its Force Testing Systems, highlighting the flexible architecture that enables the range of Starrett force and material testing software programs to be compatible with its different test frames. At EASTEC, Starrett will demonstrate its FMS Series test frame featuring a new Long-Range Extensometer which is used to calculate elongation based on the overall distance moved. This easy-to-use, practical fixture provides a long travel distance, critical for rubber and elastomer applications. Also, the Starrett FMM Computer-Based Force Testing Solution, which is compact and ideal for high volume, lean manufacturing production, will be featured. Starrett L1 software, ideal for quality control and incoming inspection, and engineered to meet the requirements for fast, efficient, high-volume production testing, will be demonstrated on the FMM frame.
Starrett DFC Digital Handheld Force Gages will also be featured. The DFC may be used as an advanced digital force gage and controller with Starrett FMM Force Testers, and can serve as a universal interface.
Starrett Special Custom Gaging solutions and capabilities will also be showcased at EASTEC. Even with the availability of hundreds of standard precision tools and gages, sometimes measuring challenges are best solved with a specially made gage. The Starrett Special Gage Division designs and builds dimensional measuring instruments for a wide range of industries that provide guaranteed performance to meet customer specifications.
