Force Testing in Medical Tubing
Force testing in the design and production of medical tubing is an essential ingredient in the delivery of functional and consistently high quality medical devices. This article describes a range of typical tests, how they are performed and the benefits they offer.
Why Test Top-Load?
As packaging manufacturers and blow molders focus on reducing material usage and wastage while at the same time ensuring packaging integrity top-load or crush testing is an important method to help them determine the performance of their packaging materials. The article “Why Test Top-Load” explains what top-load testing is and highlights the business case for effective and economical testing.

For over 35 years, Mecmesin has been providing medical device manufacturers with force and torque testing solutions to ensure quality control of materials, components, packaging and finished products.
Needle and Syringe Force Testing
Needles and syringes need to perform precisely to specification or they may seriously limit the ability of a health care professional to effectively and safely treat their patient. Force and torque testing in development and production enables the manufacturers to guarantee consistent quality and performance of their products. This article examines seven typical testing applications within this field By David Mercer
A tensile test is a way of determining how something will react when a force is applied to it in tension – when it is stretched. It may be performed to assess the joint strength of two or more components, or to ascertain the strength parameters of a material. For instance, a tensile test on a child’s remote control car could determine the disassembly force of the aerial from the body casing. More fundamentally, the tensile properties of the material from which the toy is fabricated may be determined by tensile testing.
Compliance with current standards now forms a significant part of product development. This has led to stringent quality controls within R&D and production line facilities to:
