Starrett L3 systems represent a new and easier solution for creating a test, performing a test, analysing your test results and managing test data. L3

 systems meet the requirements of today's research scientist, design engineer, quality manager or technician responsible for material characterisation, verification and validation.  Unlike traditional material testing systems that involve programming and having to know exactly what measurements are required before the test, L3 systems employ a simple methodology.

You create your test method.  Your test method creates your graph, and then you measure on the graph using a set of analysis tools.  You can measure any point and any segment anywhere along the graph.  Analyse using stress, strain, load, distance, and time.  Your measurements are displayed on your graph and shown in data tables with statistics and tolerances.

Construct simple and complex multi-step test setups.  Create your test method to an accepted standard or to your specific testing needs.  Create your test method and then email to other locations so that your testing is always performed in the exact same manner with the same measurements and results.
