Torque Tester for Dedicated Caps
Elopak required equipment for the manual testing of tamper-proof seals on bottle caps, but without the bottle being present. The unit had to accommodate a range of different size caps.
Dedicated 'release fixtures' and 'mandrels' were designed to suit the different caps.
The 'release fixture' is made from a mould of the cap ensuring a tight fit and distributing the load uniformly around the cap so there is no deformation due to squeezing by hand which could affect results.
