The Orbis cap torque tester is ideally suited to a wide range of screw-type closures and other components where application and removal torque need to be measured accurately.
The versatile top plate features adjustable gripping pegs to hold containers of various different shapes and sizes. An IP-54 rated splash-resistant case is easy to clean making it the perfect portable solution for torque testing in production and quality control areas.
Torque values can be measured in all common units (mN.m, N.m, lbf.in, ozf.in, kgf.cm) and displayed in peak-hold or live-display modes. Accidental changes to these settings by the operator can be prevented by using the keypad lock feature.
Once the test is completed the results can instantly be sent via RS232 or digimatic format to a printer or PC for further analysis and reporting.
Mains or battery-powered means that this portable device can be used just about anywhere. Weighing just 3kg and fitted with an ergonomic carrying handle, it can be easily taken with you when visiting customers or suppliers.
With such extensive capabilities at an affordable price, the Orbis is widely used around the world on production lines across industries as diverse as beverages, medical, cosmetics, automotive and many more.
The Tornado cap torque tester has all the functionality and features of the Orbis with some important added extras.
A configurable first-peak function, coupled with the standard maximum reading, ensures that both the initial slip torque and also the bridge torque are captured. This is of particular interest when measuring the performance of tamper-evident closures (eg. ROPP) where a maximum reading alone is insufficient to determine both characteristics. An onboard memory of up to 500 results is also available for mass storage when batch testing and can be downloaded later to a printer or PC.
The Tornado also features 5 different configurable alarm settings to suit individual closure types. Each setting will alert an operator with a buzzer and/or red & green lights to indicate during testing whether the torque reading is within or outside its tolerance limit.
To avoid the risk of operators inadvertently changing units of measurement or the operating mode, there is a password-protected lock function. This is particularly useful when the instrument is being used over several shifts by operators of differing skill levels.
The CapTest cap torque tester has the core functionality of the Orbis but incorporates a stainless-steel housing where the testing environment calls for greater protection.
Measuring up to 5 N.m this manually-operated torque tester lends itself perfectly for testing caps and closures in medical & pharmaceutical clean-rooms and production areas where the risk of liquid splash is high. It has become the instrument of choice in many bottling plants within the mineral water and beer industry.
An additional mechanical stop is incorporated into the torque sensor to provide enhanced protection against accidental overload.
