"Mecmesin's Tornado testers are very easy to use. Even people who had no experience in this area found them simple to operate. We achieved very reliable results and found that the Tornadoes were easily adapted to test many different bottles and pots. The machines produced printed paper results or a digital file and we found this was a very easy way of keeping opening torque records. They are a very useful instrument for packaging."

Case study
Tornado measuring cosmetics jar closure torque with digital printer
The Mecmesin penetrometer provides accurate low strength data (up to 1 MPa) as soon as you can start testing. This data can immediately be shared with the Shotcrete crews working underground. The instrument and accessories have brought benefits through easy transportation and has the ability to be used for shotcrete trials, where the samples are shot to be cored at a later date. This has eliminated the need to transport additional samples.

Case study
Spraying test samples for penetrometer calibration testing
Since we initiated this sample testing procedure, we have improved the consistency and level of quality of our products. The intuitive graphical illustration of the results helps us better understand the whole test and the nature of the torque characteristics, which assist in the design process.

Case study
Cosmetics closure samples and pass
The Mecmesin force and torque products are simple to use, reliable and have significantly increased the speed of design development at the company. The programming was found to be intuitive and calculations and data export features particularly useful, especially when setting up programs for non-technical staff.
