Starrett Twin Column Material Test



The Starrett MMD-50K-L3 is a dual-column material measurement system optimized for high-volume production and quality control testing. The MMD-50K-L3 frame has a 50kN (11,250lbf) testing capacity ideal for tensile or compressive testing. The system includes the test frame, controller & software. The controller features a Windows operating system with high resolution color, multi-touch display, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB 2.0 port(s). The L2 Plus software features analysis tools to measure and display results on a single graph. Once this is complete, those results are automatically measured and placed on all of the test runs within your batch. Display full graphs, split graphs with data tables or as a data table complete with statistical calculations or tolerance results.
