Cap Coders Torque Testing unit was developed in accordance with new Pharmaceutical legislation that requires validation of certain products and to ensure and prove that no un-qualified products can process further through the manufacturing cycle.
In machines with a reject station, any product outside of the customers set torque tolerances are automatically rejected. On more manual machines an alarm is activated and/or a warning on the HMI indicating the failure and the machine will not operate again until the rejected product is removed.
We have integrated this system into every Cap Coder model from the CC1440 bench top machine running small batch testing in laboratories up to CC1160 Monobloc’s running in fully automatic production environments.
The Torque testing unit can be programmed in a number of ways, i.e. it might be desirable for the unit to test the release torque of one cap in every 10, 20 or 50 containers. In this scenario, the torque head will apply the cap, read and record the torque, then un-do the cap, again reading and recording the opening torque before it then re-applies the cap once more for it to continue onto the next cycle.
Using Cap Coders proven CC720 Mk6 Servo driven capping head integrated with Sensor Technology’s high precision RWT torque transducer, has led to a very sophisticated and flexible torque testing unit that can be programmed in a number of ways.
