Emperor™ (Torque)

Vortex torque testing system

By using a software based testing system you gain:

  • Full programmable control over your test application
  • The ability to build a complete profile of your products test performance

Emperor works exclusively in combination with Mecmesin's top-of-the-range Vortex-i and Helixa-i torque testing systems. From simple routine tests to sophisticated multi-stage clockwise and counter-clockwise testing procedures and analyses, quality professionals are guaranteed the ultimate in flexibility, accuracy and consistency.

Emperor software enables you to;

  • Build your own test program
  • Gain accurate test data
  • Evaluate results in-depth
  • Create test reports


  • Compatible with Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8: 32 bit and 64 bit versions.
  • Emperor is available in multiple languages.

Please contact your Mecmesin agent if you need to run the software on a version of Windows not listed above.

Build Program

Create your test procedure step by step

  • Totally open and free access to create test routines to exact specifications with no restrictions as in other material testing software
  • Alternatively, choose a pre-programmed test stored in the library and tailor it to suit your requirements. These test procedures include: Running torque, break torque, release torque or operating torque and many more

User-interface simplifies the task of testing

  • Emperor's simple-to-use interface enables easy management of test set-up. Designed for different levels of operation, users are guided throughout the test creation process, minimising training time
  • Toolbars provide a quick means of navigating to most commonly used features
  • Fully customise your test e.g. add tolerance bands to easily identify pass/fail scenarios, pre-define critical parameters for automatic detection, such as multiple peak and trough identification, average load, and many more


  • Restricted levels of access between supervisor and operator avoids accidental tampering of test programs
View Test Data

Accuracy comes as standard

  • Emperor can collect data at 1000 times per second to ensure accurate, detailed recording of results from every specimen
  • Its intelligent programming means Emperor can smooth any 'noise', which detracts from test features of interest by lowering data collection rate
  • Loadcell deflection compensation is automatically implemented by Mecmesin's intelligent loadcell (ILC), to provide consistently accurate sample readings and requiring no user intervention

See the test as you want

  • View tests graphically as a 'live' event and customise this view to match your preferences

Help at your fingertips

  • A comprehesive help system is available whenever you need it, with a search facility, index, glossary and table of contents
Evaluate Test Data

Perform test evaluations with ease

  • Emperor software enables you to undertake standard calculations, such as peak load, average load, multiple peak and trough, area, etc, with a few clicks of a button
  • Sophisticated functions, such as the ability to detect a step/slope change in the data are also included, as well as the ability to create your own functions using bespoke variables
  • View multiple results by selecting 2 or more test traces to overlay for comparative analysis. Interrogate results using the zoom tool, timeline and cursor-drop facilities
  • Replay the test, as often as you wish, to identify key points and automatically recognise pass/fail scenarios through colour-coded results
  • For ultimate flexibility, all calculations are applied post-test so data can be recalculated without having to repeat the test procedure
Generate Test Report

Customisable reporting function

  • Print test data directly or export to, for example, Microsoft® Excel, SPC Package etc, for further manipulation or inclusion into another document
  • Use as much or as little of the test data as required, or create a batch report including results, graphs and statistics
