Cap Torque Tester Series CTA

Series CTA Cap Torque Testers present a simple, accurate, and economical solution for manual cap torque testing. These cap torque testers are 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. Innovative mechanical overload protection provides peace of mind. The CTA cap torque tester features an aluminum housing, rugged construction and close attention to engineering you'd expect from Mark-10.

Calibration kit now available.
