Prevent Product Recalls

Release Torque and Application Angle Testing Can Prevent Recalls

It is imperative for pharmaceutical manufacturers to verify their capping processes and ensure the seals are seated properly to prevent leaks. One such company in Florida was unfortunate enough to experience this issue first hand. This drug manufacturer had to recall more than 8,900 cases of oxycodone1 because their product showed excess lidding material accumulation…

Having the Optimal Chuck is Key

Torqo Chuck Options

EDM Chuck – the EDM Chuck works for serrated, CR/CT, and TEB closure types. It is a single dimension. Each cap diameter requires its own EDM chuck (closure compatibility: diameter: <100mm; height: <50mm). Each serration also requires its own chuck, most tall caps are supported using a deep chuck housing. The ideal application for the…

Improve Ergonomics and Cycle Time

Pump & Sprayer Grippers

Using Mesa Labs’ automated torque analyzers testers can improve the ergonomics and cycle time when compared to other automatic and manual torque testers. One of the ergonomic benefits of using the SureTorque line of torque equipment is the automated and controlled (validate-able) closure and bottling gripping process. To make the closure gripping process as easy…

Mesa to Present at BevTech

Presentation: Automated Production Line QA Testing – Bottle Closure Torque and Application Angle

Manual and semi-automatic bottle closure torque testing devices, used in beverage operations to validate seal integrity and to ensure consumer open ability, can be replaced by either a fully automated torque and mechanical application angle tester or a vision system based application angle tester. At this year’s BevTech, Gabor Szakacs shares his extensive knowledge on…

Variable Mounting

Is Tooling Interchangeable between SureTorque ST-S3 and ST-120S?

Most tooling is interchangeable between Mesa’s SureTorque ST-S3 and ST-120S. There are certain situations when they will not be interchangeable. For example, if you own an older ST-120S model that has the “standard” clamps, the mounting is different from the parallel clamp mounting. Examples shown below: Parallel/centering clamps: (pros: tool less / quick change-over, no settings…
