Child-Resistant Closure Tester

Mecmesin’s dedicated test instrument measuring both force and torque

The CRC tester from Mecmesin, is a highly accurate tester, capable of measuring both the security and accessibility of child-resistant closures. The ‘push’ and ‘twist’ action used to open a CRC closure is shown clearly on two dedicated displays for easy identification of both force and torque values.
