L1 Force Measurement Solution Covers a Range of Applications

Originally titled 'Force Measurement Solution Covers a Range of Applications'

The L.S. Starrett Co.’s L1 force measurement system is designed for production and quality control testing. 

The L.S. Starrett Co.’s L1 system is a line of 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, and constant hold. The system is designed for production and quality control testing. 

The L1 systems are computer-controlled testing systems designed for high-volume, in-situ production testing. They are said to be easy to set up, operate and maintain. Six models are available in standard and extended travels with testing capacities of 110 lbf, 330 lbf and 550 lbf. All L1 Systems feature a small footprint. 

Templates let tests be created, performed, measured and analyzed and limit testing, break testing, constant hold testing, and cycle testing can also be performed. Touchscreen controls simplify operations and the high resolution display shows results in tabular and graphical formats. Tolerances can be applied for immediate pass/fail indication. Raw data and results can be exported to Excel for reporting and statistical analysis. Load measurement accuracy is better than 0.1 percent while distance position accuracy is better than 20 microns.
