Mecmesin supplied the company with two Tornado 10Nm digital torque testers. These devices are comfortably capable of testing the torque required to open tamper-evident closures, which is a critical specification in the design of packaging for personal care creams and liquids. The Tornados are fitted with a four-peg clamping frame. These frames provide the versatility required by the manufacturer, since the frame’s adjustability allows them to hold a large variety of containers while their seals undergo torque testing. During the test, peak torque readings are clearly displayed, and operators have the option of exporting the test data to a statistical printer or other output device.
In addition to the ability to test the tamper-evident closures of various plastic and glass bottles and pots for slip and bridge torque, Mecmesin’s torque testers provided the manufacturer with several other advantageous features:
• highly accurate torque readings,
• clear, intuitive controls,
• easy-to-read pass/fail indicators,
• onboard memory for storage of statistical test data, and
• waterproofing to withstand the splashing that is common on the production floor.
Mecmesin’s Greek distributor, George Gousoulis and Co. provided the manufacturer with several after-sales services, including training and technical instruction. The manufacturer was pleased to say that reliability and value for money were their main reasons for their choosing Mecmesin’s Tornado digital torque tester.
