L.S. Starrett is displaying a variety of metrology products including automated vision technology, optical measurement systems, digital measuring tools and more. 

One of the new products, the HVR100 “Flip” digital video system can work upright vertically or on its side horizontally. One of these systems will be demonstrating a fully automated metrology solution in which a robot loads and unloads parts on the machine's workstage. 

Also shown will be the AVR300 automatic vision system that is designed for repetitive measurements and automatic comparison to CAD files. It features both zoom optics and interchangeable telecentric lenses for micron-level resolution and accurate field-of-view measurements.

Other exhibits of note include the model No. HE400, a compact bench-top optical comparator with a 16" screen, and two horizontal digital video comparators that combine vision and optical comparator technology. The products feature a custom-designed interchangeable lens mounting system, go/no-go digital overlay capability directly from part CAD files, and real-time video edge detection. In addition, the company’s entry-level L1 computer-based force testing products are designed for production and quality control testing and are said to be easy to set up, operate and maintain. They perform a range of testing including load, limit and break testing, and cyclic count testing.
