Starrett Automated Metrology, Force Measurement Inspection Featured at ATX West

New KMR-Mx Series video inspection system to be introduced at the show

Published: Wednesday, December 6, 2023 - 11:59

(L.S. Starrett: Athos, MA) -- L.S. Starrett Co., a global manufacturer of precision metrology systems and measuring tools and gauges, will be featuring the automated inspection capabilities of its metrology and force measurement systems at ATX West, an Informa Advanced Manufacturing show co-located with MD&M West, WestPack, D&M West, and Plastec West, Feb. 6–8, 2024, in Booth No. 4171, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.

Starrett optical and video-based measurement systems combine high-resolution images, powerful intuitive software, and precision mechanical platforms to deliver superb accuracy and repeatable measurement results.

Starrett will demonstrate pattern recognition and automated inspection on several metrology systems at ATX West, including:
KMR-Mx Series video inspection system—This unique new platform fills the gap for companies that want the speed and accuracy of a video-based platform but do not need or want a PC-based system.
AVR200 multi-sensor vision system—A full CNC benchtop vision system, ideal for repetitive measurements and automatic comparison to CAD files.
HDV horizontal digital video comparator—Combines the best features of vision and optical comparator technology.
HD400 horizontal dual lens optical comparator—Offers 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 ATX West, Starrett will demonstrate its FMS Series test frame measuring the force to draw fluid in and out of a syringe. This application uses Starrett L2Plus software to capture peak and average load data.
