The Vortex-i and Vortex-xt automated torque testers have been helping professionals around the world to objectively assess the quality of their components and assembled products for more than 20 years.
They have become the accepted testers in industries as diverse as food and drink, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and automotive.
They are ideally suited to a packaging manufacturer wishing to assess the bridge torque of a tamper-evident closure right through to an automotive controls designer looking to perfect the ‘feel’ of a rotary switch.
The motorised Vortex-i is controlled by software run on a computer and the Vortex-xt uses a touchscreen console to host the software. They deliver 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.
