MINNEAPOLIS, MINN.-Larson Systems introduced the latest addition to its line of Spring Testing Automation Robots (STAR) recently at Spring World 2008.
The STAR 25 gives operators the ability to test spring compression or extension with the same machine. It is available in a compression (short extension) model capable of handling up to 9-inch long parts and a compression/extension model capable of testing parts up to 29 inches long. It has a 3,000 lb drive and comes equipped with new load cells that have 2-inch thru-rod capability for increased testing accuracy on larger springs.

Also available is an optional ½-inch to 2-inch thru-rod accessory kit that can be mounted on the STAR for quick and easy changeovers.
