The L.S. Starrett Co. Company Profile
Founded in 1880 and headquartered in Athol, MA U.S.A., The L.S. Starrett Company is a leading global manufacturer of precision measuring tools and gages, metrology systems, custom engineered granite solutions, custom gaging, force and hardness testing solutions, and more, which all play a vital role when ensuring a stringent quality control program for the manufacture of accurate medical parts. For over 135 years, industry has relied on Starrett for its exceptional quality and precision.
Medical parts inspection demands are increasing with tighter accuracies, traceability and the need for 100% inspection. To ensure accuracy, medical manufacturers must have unquestionable accuracy and repeatability with measurement and inspection equipment to enforce strict quality control processes. With a full range of metrology and vision systems, optical comparators, video measurement and force measurement solutions, and an exhaustive line of precision tools and gages, Starrett is the ideal source for solving medical manufacturing quality control challenges.
Starrett offers a wide range of comparator configurations and options including horizontal and vertical benchtop systems, floor standing models and side bed setups, all designed to provide high performance and cost-effectiveness. The broad range of metrology systems from Starrett are ideal for use in QC labs, research, engineering and manufacturing environments where small to large scale high-precision measurement is critical. Many systems are available in either manual or CNC configurations.
- Optical Comparators provide a time tested, cost effective solution for non-contact measurement, and are used for many medical dimensional inspection requirements. Starrett offers a wide range of comparator configurations and options including horizontal and vertical benchtop and floor standing models, and side bed setups, all designed to provide high performance and cost-effectiveness.
- Video-Based Measurement Systems combine high-resolution graphic images, powerful-intuitive software and precision mechanical platforms, to deliver superb accuracy and repeatable measurement results. A new large field-of-vision (FOV) Benchtop Vision Measurement System that is capable of being used in either a vertical or horizontal orientation, is now available.
- Digital Optical Comparators are vision metrology systems that function like horizontal optical comparators, and offer an added benefit of having a DXF "digital overlay".
Starrett offers turnkey system solutions for material testing, force analysis and force measurement, all designed to make it easy to create and perform tests as well as manage the results. Starrett force measurement systems provide reliable, accurate and easy-to-use solutions for applications ranging from determining simple peak load measurement, load/extension at limits, or more complex break determination. A full range of test frames, software, load cell sensors, test fixtures and more are offered.
For example, medical adhesives, syringes, artificial skin, foam orthotics, stents, medical gloves and other medical products require critical and exacting measurements prior to commercialization. Starrett Force Testing solutions can be used to test medical devices for their form, fit and function. The ability to measure, analyze and collect data for exporting to quality control applications or to a network, make them a cost-effective solution for medical device manufacturers around the world.
