Starrett (United States) - Multiple springs can be loaded and tested in sequence, gathering detailed information of each spring while saving the operator load time.
The L.S. Starrett Company has introduced a newly designed Rotary Table Springs Force Tester. The system is setup to test multiple springs in a single setup without the need for additional operator input as required when springs are tested one by one. The batch testing volume production approach saves time, and significantly increases test throughput, while freeing up the operator to attend to other jobs.
Multiple springs can be loaded and tested in the Rotary Table Force Tester System, and the system will provide a pass/ fail report on each spring. Detailed information on each spring is also available including free length, spring rate, and critical load and distance points. Different rotary table options are available to accommodate a customized number of springs in a single setup.
The Rotary Table Springs Tester solution features the Starrett FMS-1000-L3, a single-column force measurement system optimized for high-volume production and quality control testing. The FMS-1000-L3 frame has a 1000N (225lbf) testing capacity, ideal for tensile or compressive testing. The system includes the test frame, controller & software. The controller features a Windows operating system with a high resolution color, multi-touch display, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB 2.0 port(s). The Rotary Table Springs Force Tester has L2 Plus software featuring analysis tools to measure and display results on a single graph. Once this is complete, the results are automatically measured and placed on all of the test runs within a batch. Displays include full graphs, split graphs with data tables, or as a data table complete with statistical calculations or tolerance results.
