Torque tests performed on screw caps can help:
Mecmesin offers two torque testers, one manually-operated, one motorised, and purpose-built fixtures to meet your test and evaluation requirements.
Easy to set-up and operate, the Orbis 6N.m torque tester, is an ideal instrument for ensuring capping heads apply the correct level of torque to screw closures for a hermetic seal.
"The Mecmesin closure torque testers have fulfilled all our criteria and have given us great confidence in our application of the screw cap closures."
Orlando Wyndham Group,
producers of Jacob's Creek wine
Able to measure the application and release torque up to 10N.m, the Vortex-d is an affordable solution to guarantee production consistency and easy openability of screw closures.
"The Mecmesin Vortex gives us peace of mind that our process is in control on screw cap application."
Ian Scrivener, Technical Manager - Packaging of Hardy's Wine Company
Mecmesin offers purpose-built grips in order to ensure samples are tested correctly and provide excellent accuracy in results.
The Split Mandrel Stelvin Grip
This grip mounts to a motorised torque test system and securely holds closures in place without the risk of pinching or slipping.
Screw Closure Holders
Mecmesin's closure holders may be custom moulded to suit your specific closure design avoiding distortion on gripping.
