What other names are used for a torque meter?
A torque meter can also be called: Tabletop torque meter, electronic torque meter or even bottle torquemeter.
In what sector of activity are they used?
Torque meters are primarily used in the packaging industry.
During bottling, the tightening torque of the “cap-bottle” system must be adapted, it must not go below a minimum threshold (risk of leakage, external contamination) and be higher than a maximum threshold (risk of very difficult opening or deterioration of the cap).
In cosmetics, they are used for perfume bottles with screwed pumps (perfumes, creams, lotions, …).
In the food industry: milk, soda and mineral water bottles, as well as anything that can be closed with a cap (groceries, bulk). Caps with a safety collar (or tamper-evident ring) are a particularity of the sector taken into account by our meters.
In the pharmaceutical industry: many medicines packaged in bottles and closed with screw caps (capsules, syrup, etc.). The particularity of this sector is the safety cap or CRC cap which ACRN has experience in.
In the wine sector, wine houses and suppliers of wine-making equipment use torque meters to measure the torque of wine bottles closed with screw caps. ACRN torque meters are particularly suitable for the control of mobile bottling.
In chemistry, the tests of closing of cans (ex: cans of oil, lubricants or phytosanitary products), the refills of electronic cigarette,…
Manufacturers of plastic/glass/wood packaging (bottles, caps, pumps, flasks): plastics and glass industries also use ACRN torque meters in their quality control.
In industry, torque measurement is used in many applications:
– control the torque of torque wrenches, torque screwdrivers used in controlled tightening or screwing
– control the torque (e.g.: lipstick or lip balm mechanism, opening mechanisms in rotation of automotive components (e.g.: windshield wipers, storage drawers, armrests, …).
– test the torsion of components
What are the advantages of ACRN meters?
In all these sectors, the needs and the nature of the controls are very varied. By working with our experts, we will study all your problems.
We will study your product diversity, the shapes, to propose clamping systems: interchangeable, and fast. We will choose a range of torque and a suitable precision. We can give you the best practices for a successful and repeatable torque control, but also a good use of accessories.
Our equipment is robust, designed to be upgradeable, and repairable. We ensure the longest life on the market for our equipment.
In the last few years, we have carried out numerous computerized connection projects for the torque meters to support the digitalization of quality control in the factory (traceability, Dataintegrity). Our equipment and our experts are ready to meet your needs.
What is the principle of a torque meter?
The principle of a torque meter is to measure the unscrewing torque of bottles, flasks, samples taken out of the production line in random sampling.
Concerning the values to be respected, there are torque measurement charts which are function of the plug, diameter. We can assist you in the acquisition of a material by providing you with the usual specifications of torque measurement.
Is the torque measurement test easy to deploy?
It is a very common test in the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries, as well as manufacturers/packagers of screws and spirits. It is indeed simple for handlers and inexpensive to deploy.
What other uses does a torque meter have?
These torque controllers are also used to control torque wrenches and other types of tools.
