The CAPTEST is a tough and affordable manual digital cap torque tester, measuring clockwise and anticlockwise torques up to 5 N.m. Its IP54 splash proof stainless steel housing makes it ideal for clean rooms and pharmaceutical environments. It can be combined with a printer or statistical mini-processor for regular, repetitive testing of screw-top closures.

Mecmesin has been at the forefront of force and torque measurement for 40 years. Our team of experienced application engineers can work with you to deliver custom-designing products to your exact requirements. This video highlights the range of solutions we can offer from simple, custom-designed grips and fixtures, through to complex automated test systems, designed to relieve operators of tedious or difficult tasks and to provide greater consistency and speed during material handling and testing.

The Vortex-dV is a versatile and affordable torque testing system, comprising a precision-controlled motorised stand with a choice of torque transducers, an AFTI digital torque display and data capture unit, and a range of grips and fixtures.

The MultiTest-dV range comprises three outstanding value, superior entry-level force testers. Designed for precision-controlled compression and tension testing, the dV’s simple controls, backed by sophisticated electronics, make it the ideal choice for a wide range of routine testing.

The Mecmesin CrimpTest-1 is a horizontal, motorised wire terminal tester, designed for ease of use, rapid throughput and high duty cycle operation. Rugged construction, simple controls and a clear display make this compact, benchtop unit an ideal quality checking instrument for wire terminal manufacturing equipment, right at the point of production.

The release torque of sparkling wine closures is measured with a Mecmesin CombiCork tester fitted with pneumatic clamps to hold different sized bottle securely in place.

Mecmesin demonstrates an automated bottle closure testing system used to check the performance of bottle capping machines in volume beverage bottle filling plants. The system can check the correct closure force has been applied by measuring the slip and bridge torque on 18 samples in less than 10 minutes.

The FPT-H1 horizontal Friction, Peel and Tear tester is used to measure the strength of flexible seals often used in the packaging for medical devices. Measurements can be made according to ASTM F88 or EN 868-5 standards, with all the required calculations handled by Emperor™ software. Results can be recorded in customisable reports.

Mandrels are used when measuring the opening and closing forces associated with caps and closures on bottles, jars and other containers. The mandrel grips the closure evenly and uniformly minimising distortion. When used with Mecmesin's computer controlled Vortex-i motor driven torque measurement stand, readings can be made accurately and repeatably.

Loop tack tests measure the bond formed by pressure sensitive adhesives when brought briefly into contact with another surface. International standards, ASTM D6195 method A, PSTC-16 method A and FINAT N0. 9 can be performed using Mecmesin’s MultiTest-xt console controlled test stand, driven by Emperor software.
