Tabletop torquemeter, also known as electronic torquemeter or bottle torquemeter, is mainly used in the packaging industry.
During bottling, the torque of the “cap-bottle” system must be adapted, it must not fall 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).
The principle is to measure the unscrewing torque of bottles, flasks and samples taken at random from the production line.
Concerning the values to be respected, there are torque measurement charts which are a function of the cap, diameter. We can assist you in the acquisition of equipment by providing you with the usual torque measurement specifications.

Benchtop torque meters are also used in various industries to measure the torque of small components, parts or products. They are generally more compact and portable than motorized torque meters.
Here are some examples of industries where benchtop torque meters are used:
- Electronics industry: Benchtop torque meters are used to measure the torque of electronic components such as potentiometers, switches, connectors and relays.
- Watch industry: Benchtop torque meters are used to measure the torque of watch movements to ensure their accuracy and reliability.
- Medical Industry: Benchtop torque meters are used to measure the torque of small surgical instruments such as pliers, screwdrivers and dental drills.
- Packaging Industry: Benchtop Torque Meters are used to measure the torque of bottle caps, lids and closures to ensure they are properly attached and sealed.
- Toy Production Industry: Benchtop torque meters are used to measure the torque of moving parts in toys, to ensure their safety and function.
In short, benchtop torque meters are used in many industries to measure the torque of small components or products, and are essential to ensure the quality, safety and reliability of the final products.
