Starrett FMM Digital Force Tester


Starrett FMM Digital Force Test Stands FMM Digital Force Testers may be used with L1 software or with a Starrett DFC or
DFG digital force gage. FMM digital force testers are compact and ideal for high volume, lean manufacturing production.
FMM testers are available in three capacities: 110lbf (500N), 330lbf (1500N) and 550lbf (2500N). Two travel lengths are available for all capacities: standard travel at 20″ (508mm) and extended travel at 30″ (762mm). Crosshead speeds are controlled
locally and can be set from 0.002 to 40 inch/min (0.05 to 1016mm/min). A high resolution OLED display shows distance measurements with accuracy better than 20μm (0.0008 inch). Travel limits help prevent load sensor overloading.
The FMM force tester can be controlled using L1 software for limit, cycling, hold and coefficient of friction testing. The FMM force tester can also be controlled using a DFC digital force gage. The DFC force gage serves as a universal controller where it is used to setup the force tester’s distance limits, crosshead direction and crosshead velocity for a test.

Starrett FMM Motorized Force Tester



Two enhancements have been made to all test frames and all Lx software applications. Starrett improved and simplified the Firmware Update process. Just select the new firmware file and the update takes place as before, but we have provided feedback messages to indicate if a problem has occurred and the probable cause. This new firmware updater will apply to FMM, FMS, MMS, FMD and MMD test frames. We have a PINCH LOAD feature to the LOADS option in all Lx software. The PINCH LOAD provides a level of protection for users who are concerned about accidently pinching their hands/fingers during a manual movement of the crosshead using the jog keys or joy stick. PINCH LOAD is an option within the LOADS setting. Users can enter a load value, up to 50N (11lbf, 5kgf). When PINCH LOAD is enabled and the user is controlling the test frame via the jog key or joy stick in a DOWNWARD/COMPRESSION direction manually, the crosshead will decelerate to a full stop as quickly as possible when the PINCH LOAD value is measured. This means that some form of load measurement must be occurring and that load data is being measured by either a DFC gage in test mode, or by the L1 software controlling the FMM test frame. The PINCH LOAD option is located in the DFC force gage (TESTS option) and in L1, L2, S2, L2Plus and L3 software applications.
