Starrett will showcase advanced metrology and force solutions including the HDV300 Horizontal Digital Video Comparator and the L1 Force Measurement Systems.

ATHOL, MA  U.S.A. (December 14, 2018) - The L.S. Starrett Company has announced it will be demonstrating several advanced metrology, precision tools, gages and force measurement solutions in Booth No. 3015 at HOUSTEX 2019 from February 26-28 at George R. Brown Convention Center, Houston, Texas.

Force solutions to be demonstrated include the new Starrett L1  innovative, entry level computer-based force testing solutions for applications ranging from load limit and distance testing to break limit, time average, cyclic count and duration testing, constant hold and more.


Metrology systems to be highlighted at HOUSTEX include the HDV300 Horizontal Digital Video Comparator which combines the best features of vision and optical comparator technology, with a uniquely designed interchangeable lens mounting system, go/ no-go digital overlay capability directly from part CAD files, real time video edge detection and more. With 12" x 6" of stage travel, the HDV is configured like a traditional horizontal comparator. The system has a uniquely mounted 5MP digital video camera, coupled with a choice of quick change telecentric lenses or 6.5:1 zoom for micron-level resolution.

The HDV system includes a powerful 64-bit PC and touchscreen monitor, which runs MetLogix M3 Metrology software. With this software, DXF CAD files can be imported and 2D Go-No-Go gages created, similar to using a Mylar overlay chart on a comparator screen. Video edge detection (VED), allows real-time interaction of the imported file with the video image of the part being inspected, resulting in enhanced productivity, speed and accuracy.
