The CAP-TA Cap Torque Testers is a simple, accurate, and economical solution for manual cap torque testing. Ideal for lab or production use for closure manufacturers, bottlers, food and beverage companies, and others. The cap torque tester captures peak readings for application and removal torques.

Data output via RS-232 and Mitutoyo enable reporting and analysis of test data via PC or other data collector. Adjustable posts effectively grip a broad range of container shapes and sizes, while a set of flat rubber-edged jaws are available for unique profiles.
