Catheter cap removal torque

Customised engineering example

Our client was testing the release torque of 20 mm long plastic catheter caps with irregular features to aid finger gripping. The test is performed by hand with a digital torque sensor, but achieving maximum grip and quick insertion required customisation. Mecmesin designed a multi-finger mandrel to ensure maximum contact and exact axial alignment. This improved the accuracy of the test through repeatability and cost savings through efficiency in use.
