Steinfurth Torque Measuring System TMS 5010

A reliable torque measurement tool offering an accurate method for determining the torque needed to open or close bottle caps. 


Efficient torque measurement for bottle caps

Be certain that you know the torque needed to open or close bottle caps with this reliable testing tool. For routine tests where precise reproducibility, user independency and special test procedures are necessary, an automatic operated torque measuring device is an optimal solution. 

The easy way to measure torque

This torque measurement instrument shows a graphic display of the torque curve for easy assessment and allows for interactively programmable measuring sequences. It is suitable for integration in standard beverage procedures and suitable for use in the lab or on the filling line. 

Fully automated torque measurement   

This flexibly programmable torque measurement tool is fully automatic and suitable for a variety of measurement categories, including: 

  • Physical performance test method 
  • Removal torque, physical performance test method 
  • Strip torque 

Torque measurement for a variety of bottle caps

In the food sector or beverage industry, the opening torque of bottles and other containers with twist off closures is an important quality parameter and vital for customer satisfaction. The last thing a consumer wants is to find that they are unable to open their beverage.  

It’s also essential that torque is understood when it comes to bottle caps for the pharmaceutical industry, where the ability to open a bottle could be of upmost importance. There’s also the risk that if you don’t know the required torque to close a cap, problems may occur on the production line.  

How to use the Steinfurth Torque Measuring System TMS 5010

This torque measuring device is very easy to use, with a user independent process that offers repeatable and reliable results perfect for the beverage industry and suitable for many more applications.  

The bottle (container) is fitted to the clamp mechanism and automatically opened. The reactive torque is monitored, and its peak value and torque curve displayed and stored afterwards. Measuring the closing torque is also possible, allowing you to also record the amount needed to seal a cap.

The Problem

To taste success in the beverage industry you need a perfect blend of the right recipe and enticing, professional packaging. If your labelling lets you down then you risk putting off your customers before they even take a sip.  

The Solution

Our customer needed an advanced label inspection machine to guarantee packaging quality across their diverse portfolio of bottled beverages for soft drinks, beers and juices. We presented the ideal solution in the Eagle Vision 360° Label Inspection module, our industry-leading label testing device.   

The Result

Our label inspection machine captures images and rotates them to identify a match. It uses high-resolution, full color cameras and reads numbers – so it performs advanced functions like scanning best before dates. The team at A. Le Coq can now confidently check every aspect of their labels far beyond their existing ability.
