In September of 2014, Starrett hosted its first interactive virtual exhibit, featuring our most cutting edge measurement systems. Visitors answered a few questions about their measurement application, and were then provided with a virtual badge, allowing access to a digital “showroom” featuring products specific to their needs.
Featured applications included:
Starrett has broken the boundaries of bi-metal bonding technology. Conventional bi-metal blades use either electron beam or laser to weld the high-speed wire to the alloy backing material. Starrett innovation has developed a state-of-the-art process that has resulted in a new generation of better performing band saw blades.
This Starrett exclusive technology joins two strips of high-speed steel wires to the backing steel using a Solid-State Diffusion Bonding. This exciting new process creates a stronger, longer lasting blade.

The Starrett PowerCalc band saw selection tool selects the right band saw blade for a specific application. PowerCalc is a free app that has been developed to work with Apple, Android, Windows, and BlackBerry mobile devices.
- Composition of the material to be cut (to determine hardness).
- Shape of the part to be cut.
- Details regarding any bundling of the material.
- Whether or not it will be a cooled cut.
- Band saw machine being used to make the cut.
“Triple chip” technology for the carbide tipped band saw blade was developed in the mid 1960’s and has long since served as the industry standard. Due to the metal industry’s continued evolution with the addition of alloys and other exotic materials unknown just ten years ago, Starrett embarked on a journey to engineer and produce a better saw blade.
Starrett granite accessories are produced from pink granite and are provided with NIST traceable calibration certificates. Long form graphed readings or A2LA accredited calibration certificates are available upon request.

The design, manufacture and use of springs can be traced back in time to the Bronze Age. Spring design is a science based on complex arithmetic calculations combined with material science. Springs are used in everyday consumer devices including cellular phones and computers, they are used widely in industrial applications including automotive and aerospace, they are used in precision medical devices where a spring, having a diameter of 0.0036 inch (about equal to the size of a human hair), is used in catheters and endoscopic instruments. While the wheel is often considered one of the most important inventions ever, the spring is arguably as equally important and with spring design constantly evolving and requiring more advanced testing and tolerancing.
