LSI revolutionized the spring testing industry again with the FLASH series 1,000 lb testers. Our Whisper Servo drive is a closed loop servo drive that increases rapid travel speed by 200%! Load speeds are now maintained at rapid speed to full load. It operates very quietly at any speed or load. These changes result in faster and quieter testing. Faster test speeds will result in test cycle time reductions of 30% to 400% with the largest time reductions on the heaviest springs.

Includes Length Deflection Compensation
What is length deflection compensation?
All force/length testing devices, regardless of manufacturer, have additional deflection by the load cell and tester frame which occurs as the spring is loaded. If you buy/use a tester without deflection compensation, measurements might include significant length errors. Spring deflection, also known as spring travel or motion, is the action of a compression spring compressing (being pushed), an extension spring extending (being pulled), or a torsion spring winding (being twisted) when a load is applied or released. This is one characteristic (spring deflection) that is measured by a Larson Systems Spring Tester.
Larson Systems has BUILT-IN Length Deflection Compensation so that the user does not have to calculate and apply length corrections. Most competitors do not have length deflection compensation.
With a Larson Systems product, forget about calculating load cell and frame deflection when testing, we’ve got you covered.
