Tactile characteristics have become a very important aspect in TRV design. The Vortex-i has enabled Pegler Yorkshire to benchmark and assess new design proposals allowing detailed examination of dynamic characteristics and wear over prolonged use. As a result we can provide customers with TRVs of an increased quality and durability.

"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."

"Mecmesin, through their Portuguese supplier Egitron, presented us with a good solution: reliable equipment and user-friendliness that was adequate for our needs. All our operators are capable of using this equipment because it is very simple to operate. I enjoy dealing with Egitron because they offer excellent technical support."

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.

The Millennium Seed Bank had a need to quantify the tightness of screw capped glass bottles used for long term storage of wild plant seed. Having established the optimum torque, the Orbis 6 N.m is used routinely to maintain the correct tightness of the bottles. The design of the Orbis makes it simple to use and easy to adapt to different containers.
Keith Manger, Laboratory Manager
The Vortex-i system has enabled us to eliminate the variability of results experienced with our previous manually-operated testing systems, allowing accurate and consistent testing of the conformance of our drug delivery systems to our stringent in-house standards.
"We perform a variety of tests on our pump products. One of which is to evaluate their release torque. In order to precisely apply torque to screw and unscrew the pumps, we use Mecmesin equipment. These instruments prove their value to us through their ease-of-use and accuracy."

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.

The Mecmesin system has helped us deliver a better product to our customers with less breakages and leaks. The Tornado is used every 2 hours to ensure the torque of the nail varnish caps are within working range.
Gregorio Suarez, Quality Control and Production Manager
Barry M Cosmetics Ltd.
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.
