The complete range of Mecmesin Closure Torque Testers is available in Australia and New Zealand through SI Instruments.

Closure Torque Testing is a measure of the torque force required to either apply or remove a cap or lid on a container. This is frequently a two stage measurement. If the cap is tamper- evident: slip torque and bridge torque is measured. If the closure is child-resistant, a concurrent measure of downward load applied must also be made. Correct performance of container closures is always quality-critical, and in many cases it is safety-critical.

Benefits of Closure Torque Testing include:
• Ensuring the proper functioning of closures e.g. openability
• Ensuring the integrity and safety of products
• Reducing material costs and achieving lean manufacturing goals
• Compliance with industry standards
