The Helixa-i automated torque tester is controlled by software run on a computer. It delivers both consistency and reliability by controlling the key test parameters of torque, angle and speed. This means that the inherent variability found when using a manual torque tester is almost fully removed. It is relied on by professionals around the world to objectively assess the quality of their precision components and fine assemblies.
The Helixa-i is the perfect solution for measuring low and medium torque on a variety of delicate or finely-engineered products. Its sensitivity and precision alignment make it suitable for testing high-quality assemblies, such as those found in cosmetics, jewellery, electronics, pharmaceutical and medical industries. Its versatile construction even allows for an axial force to be simultaneously applied whilst torque is measured – essential for products such as child-resistant closures.
The precision of the Helixa-i combined with Emperor control & acquisition software enables you to fully characterise the torque and friction in the rotation of parts and components. Where more than just a peak torque is required, use the power of Emperor to build a detailed extended profile to fully reveal the true performance of the test object.
It’s precision alignment between gripping fixtures and samples gives high accuracy to deliver reliable and repeatable test results. This makes for an ideal tester to assess new product development against a specification.
