Fully automated torque testing machines for proper application, development and design of screw caps
Bottle cap torque tester
Steinfurth specialise in the design and manufacture of electronic and mechanical measuring instruments. With over 40 years of knowledge and experience Steinfurth has established itself as the market leader when it comes to testing instruments for the beverage industry, packaging industry, food industry and pharmaceutical industries. Working together with some of the world’s leading brands Steinfurth has designed very innovative and technical solutions for some of industry’s most difficult problems.
Since the company’s foundation Steinfurth has always listened to the market needs, adapting its technology to meet the growing needs of the market. Reacting quickly to market trends and customer requests to design specific solutions has always been Steinfurth’s strength.
The systems manufactured by Steinfurth are designed around global standards and are approved testing methods including measurement for Torque testing, CO2 testing, Package testing, logging systems, carbonation systems, laboratory shakers and beer analysis.
Package testing systems have always been at the forefront of Steinfurth’s product range and devices for the measurement of cap removal torque has been one of the company’s leading technologies. Food, beverage, and pharmaceutical manufacturers must make sure that the application torque and removal torque of their caps is correct.
Torque testing machine
With today’s packaging designs the need for highly accurate torque testing has seen a trend of moving away from manual torque testing methods to fully automated systems. The automatic torque testers help eliminate human error and make the test more repeatable and reliable. They also have the added benefit of not having to completely remove the cap to give the peak removal torque. So an opening torque value can be provided, then the cap closed again without the loss of CO2 saving the product so it can be returned to the line and onto the consumer as this becomes a non-destructive test.
Cap manufacturers also need diagnostic tools to help them in the design of specific caps for various applications. Steinfuth have a special version of their automatic torque tester for this purpose, the OPT180. This device is an opening performance tester, designed to monitor the opening performance of a cap in the design phase. This allows the cap manufacturer to test the same cap with varying amounts of pressure and monitoring the performance at each stage using specialised software.
Steinfurth also manufactures a range of systems for the calibration and validation of torque measuring systems. This consists of certified weights and a standard bottle that has a fixed torque value. All items come with traceable certification meeting international standards.
