Torque Measuring System TMS 5010

Automatic Closure Torque Measurement

In the food & beverage industry, the opening torque of bottles and other containers with twistoff closures is an important quality parameter and vital for customer satisfaction.  For many routine tests, where precise reproducibility, user independency and special test procedures are necessary, an automatic operated torque measuring device is an optimal solution.

The bottle (container) is fitted to the clamp mechanism and automatically opened. Meanwhile, the reactive torque is monitored and it’s peak value and torque curve displayed and stored afterwards. Measuring the closing torque is also possible.
