In May we launched our new Mecmesin Texture website www.textureanalyzers.com.

Easily browse our range of texture analyzers and read real world case studies on how Mecmesin texture analyzers are used to simulate interactions with a range of foods, cosmetics or pharmaceutical products and measure the physical sensory experience.

Mecmesin provides texture analysis systems for field, factory and laboratory test environments. Our expertise combined with our cost effective solutions makes us your ideal partner for your texture measurement needs. Should you have any questions or need any technical advice in the search for a suitable texture analysis solution do get in touch!

How does a texture analyzer work?

Texture analyzers can simulate any user interaction with a product and measure the texture experience.

Texture analyzers can be used to evaluate and control the factors affecting quality, processing, handling and shelf-life of a product, enabling the producer to understand consumer habits and acceptance criteria.

Food texture, through touch is a critical factor for the end customer, in addition to taste and smell. Cosmetics and pharmaceutical products are also highly sensory dependent, benefitting greatly from a capability to analyze texture.

Our range of texture analyzers consist of the latest systems, tenderometers and texture presses.

Mecmesin OmniTest machine demo by the Duchess of Sussex at University of Chichester Tech Park opening

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex officially opened the University of Chichester’s new Engineering and Digital Technology Park on 3rd October 2018. Part of the tour of the £35million development, based at the Bognor Regis campus, was a visit to the Department of Engineering and Design. The laboratory features several Mecmesin force measurement machines, notably a 50 kN OmniTest Universal Testing Machine (UTM); a state-of-the-art software-controlled materials testing system.

Methods of force and torque testing for food packaging quality

Packaging solutions for food are incredibly diverse; in all aspects of physical design, mechanical function and aesthetic appeal. Their purpose is more straightforward: be safe, secure, yet easy to open, close or reliably re-seal; dispense cleanly and efficiently; minimise loss and waste; maximise shelf life; be cost-effective to manufacture and ultimately recycle or dispose of. Add to that, the consumer desire for attractive and innovative new designs, and the straightforward ultimate purpose can become quite involved in terms of meeting each individual challenge.

Mecmesin white paper: Force testing in medical tubing

Plastic medical tubing is central to the provision of effective health care in the 21st century. It is essential for the delivery of blood, nutrients and gases to the patient, and for the execution of minimally invasive surgical procedures such as cardiac angioplasty, which have proliferated widely over recent years. This article examines four force testing procedures for plastic medical tubing and explores the benefits and methodological considerations of each.

Universal testing machine range (0.5 - 5 kN)

Mecmesin offers a wide range of universal testing machines (UTM) for tension and compression testing. At the top end, our MultiTest-i systems are driven by the powerful Emperor™ control and analysis software on a separate PC, while our production-level testers in the MultiTest-xt series offer touch-screen ease of use and rapid processing. All of these systems give fully programmed control and accurate, repeatable testing, with test libraries for instant recall.
