Helixa Precision Torque Test Systems for Precision Design Applications

The Helixa torque tester is designed for measuring medium and low torque variations on numerous delicate or finely engineered products. The tester's sensitivity and accurate alignment make it ideal for testing quality assemblies.

The Emperor™ software offers two program modes — console testing mode and program testing mode. It is user-friendly with easy-to-understand commands. The calibration and capacity details of the individual torque cell are automatically identified by the Emperor software.

Users can choose from seven different HTC torque cells, which allows measurement from a few mN.m up to 6 N.m with an unmatched precision of ±0.5% of full scale.

Key Features
