Delivering Engineering Excellence
Closure testing can be complex and difficult to achieve with accuracy and repeatability. Consideration of the way the closure sample is gripped, minimising distortion, and the need for a constant rotation speed or consistent axial loading are essential for valid results. At Mecmesin our experienced team of engineers design force and torque systems with gripping fixtures to your exact requirements, so that you can apply industry standard test methods for quality control in both design and routine testing on the production floor.
