Torque Testing Systems - Vortex-i from Mecmesin

The Vortex-i has been optimized for determining rotary and static torque up to 10N.m, the flexible Vortex-i is suitable for advanced routines for challenging material and product tests. The Vortex-i systems ensure that one gains total programmable control and detailed assessment tools for conducting a broad array of torque tests.

The advantages of the Emperor software are:

  • Building its own test program
  • Gaining precise test data
  • Assessing results comprehensively
  • Creating test reports

Vortex-i systems are used along with Mecmesin's all-inclusive range of intelligent torque loadcells (ITC) that provide automatic recognition of calibration data and I.D and can be interchanged easily to meet the load that needs to be measured. High resolution and superior accuracy are guaranteed.

The salient features of the Vortex-i system are:

  • Flexible and adjustable mounting tables
  • Top-loading feature for CRC tests
  • Computer control of all test parameters

Emperor software offers a flexible programming structure helps conduct design and customization tests that will help satisfy the customer's specific requirements.

Customer Testimonials

The Vortex-i system has enabled us to eliminate the variability of results experienced with our previous manually-operated testing systems, allowing accurate and consistent testing of the conformance of our drug delivery systems to our stringent in-house standards.

Becton Dickinson, Global Medical Technology Company

Tactile characteristics have become a very important aspect in TRV design. The Vortex-i has enabled Pegler Yorkshire to benchmark and assess new design proposals allowing detailed examination of dynamic characteristics and wear over prolonged use. As a result we can provide customers with TRVs of an increased quality and durability.

Sam White, Pegler Yorkshire
