Mecmesin can offer torque test stands to suit any requirement, from higher-torque PC-controlled systems, to touch-screen testers suited to production areas, high-precision torque testers, and more basic motorised stands for flexible use with a digital gauge and torque sensor. All are manufactured to high standards, and offer accuracy and repeatability of testing not available in hand-operated instruments.
Packaging torque testing solutions
At Mecmesin we design torque testing systems and fixtures for packaging products of all kinds, so that you can apply industry standard test methods in both design, and on the production floor for quality control. Our Emperor™ control and analysis software is powerful and flexible for reliable, accurate, repeatable testing at the push of a button.
Closures, caps and stoppers
How likely are leaks or customer frustrations with difficulty in openability? Consumer packaging, especially in beverages, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, employs a wide variety of twist closures, - many are fitted with tamper-evident, pilfer-proof or child-resistant features.
Our motorised systems guarantee accurate and repeatable test data by providing consistent acceleration, rotation speed and force application; eliminating operator induced variables. The ability to apply a constant top load (particularly useful for CRCs) combined with software control guarantee a torque testing capability for all closure types.
With Mecmesin’s Emperor™ control and data analysis software and a Vortex torque tester, slip torque, bridge torque, removal torque and reverse ratchet torque can all be measured, to understand the total performance of a screw-cap closure.
