From packaging food, pharmaceuticals to cosmetic products, plastic bottles have created their space in multi-domains. Delivering quality products to the customers is one of the major aspects for plastic bottle manufacturers. To allow multi-way bottles to be tested at a certain height and pressure, we at Testronix have come up with a digital torque testerThis amazing testing equipment has been made with cutting-edge technology that makes it easy for you to calculate the opening and closing torque of PET bottles. It is easy to operate and is suitable for conducting torque tests of regular screwed closures, push-n-twist (Child Resistant) closures, and much more. In this blog, we will provide you with detailed information about the torque tester for the PET bottle that will be helpful in conducting the torque test.

Evaluate the opening & closing torque of multi-way plastic bottles with Testronix torque tester

Torque testing is a method of assessing how an object will behave when rotated - either in regular operation or until it fails or breaks deliberately. This rotating force might be 'dynamic,' meaning it is supplied at a very high speed or ‘static,' which means it is provided at a considerably slower pace. Thus, with the help of Testronix torque testing equipment for PET bottles, it will be easy for you to determine the value of opening & closing torque.

Manufacturers are increasingly using torque measurement procedures as quality control to ensure compliance with industry requirements. It verifies that components work properly and records their safety and suitability for their intended use. It may also assist in determining the underlying cause of a number of faults, which can subsequently be corrected in the manufacturing process to save costs and increase yields.

Whenever you are going to take torque measurement of bottle caps then you should make sure to apply the correct amount of torque on your caps. Testronix has come up with a digital torque tester for bottle caps that have been designed ideally for the determination of torque/opening force needed to open the cap of a PET bottle and ensure that the bottle is safe for use. The torque tester application is not limited to the food or pharmaceutical industries. This lab testing equipment is widely used in several industries where there is a need for quality control testing of bottle caps.

The operation of the machine is manual whereas the torque determination is done with the help of a digital display readout. Setting up a capping machine to impart the proper amount of torque on a cap isn't as simple as most people believe. Capping machines aren't like other testing equipment in that you can't just dial in the amount of torque you wish to apply. Because the torque output of capping machines can't be directly monitored, another way of monitoring the torque applied to caps was needed. The closure Torque Testing method will be widely used by manufacturers of caps and bottles. A bottle cap torque tester will be used to determine the application torque range for your cap as well as the removal torque range.  

Now, let us discuss the features & technical specifications of torque tester digital.
