Digital tester of low-level torques

The Tornado, described as "a unique new digital torque tester", has been designed by Mecmesin to assess the low-level torques associated with small rotating components - from packaging closures to electrical controls; from building hardware to medical devices.

Representing a major step forward in portable torque testing, the Tornado has an array of advanced capabilities", reports Mecmesin's David Mercer. "This includes pass/fail alert with five programmable memory settings, a facility to characterise the two torque peaks associated with tamper-evident closures, an onboard memory of up to 500 readings, and a bi-directional data interface for export of results."

The Tornado can be used in the laboratory or at the point of production. It features "a tough, water-resistant casing and is fabricated in non-painted polypropylene, making it suitable for use in pharmaceutical environments". Four models are available ranging from a 1.5Nm capacity option for delicate assessments to the 3Nm, 6Nm, and 10Nm models for "increasingly robust applications"
