A versatile and easy to use materials tester, the single and twin-column OmniTest is available in 5-50 kN capacities.

Controlled by VectorPro MT, Mecmesin's newly developed materials testing software designed for use in QC and R&D laboratories.


The MultiTest is a versatile tensile and compression tester controlled by software running on a PC (-i and -xt models) or as a motorised test stand (-dV model).

Available in a range of capacities as both single and twin-column from 0.5 kN right up to 50 kN, it is ideal for product testing applications according to your own test methods.


The Helixa is a precision torque tester controlled by software running on a PC (i-model) or a touchscreen console (xt-model). Designed for precision torque applications where torque forces may be very small and accuracy is the priority.


The Vortex is a top of the range torque tester controlled by software running on a PC ( i-model) or touchcreen (xt-model) or as a robust, stand alone motorised test stand (dV model). Accurate, easy to use and optimised for measure static torque up to 10 N.m.

A flexible solution for automated torque testing of a wide range of closures and components.


The FPT-H1-i is a fully-featured test system controlled by software running on a PC.

Accurate and easy to use it is specifically designed to test the coefficient of friction, peel and tear strength of a variety of materials.


The CombiCork is a purpose-built tester to reliably and objectively measure the release torque (and optionally the pull-out force) when extracting a cork from a sparkling wine or spirits bottle.

Its innovative bottle clamping design makes it quick and easy to carry out batch testing of champagne or capsulated (‘bar-top’) corks fitted to bottles ranging in size from 25cl to Magnum.


Mecmesin VFG touchscreen force gauge with Vector OS


A handheld instrument built for tough environments to deliver accuracy and reliability. Designed for tensile and compressive testing in the field or as part of a testing system for use in Production, QC and R&D labs.


The Advanced Force Gauge (AFG) is a powerful instrument packed full of innovative features designed to suit a breadth of tension and compression tests.

The AFG is available in 10 models with capacities ranging from 2.5 to 2500 N, catering for a diverse range of industrial applications. All models are accurate to ± 0.1% of full-scale with readings in a variety of measurement units; N, kN, mN, gf, kgf, lbf and ozf.

Mecmesin VTG Tornado touchscreen torque gauge with Vector OS

VTG Tornado

The VTG Tornado touchscreen torque tester is portable and rated to IP54 for testing the applied and release torque of a diverse range of products.


CrimpTest 1 kN pull tester (Obsolete product see MultiTest-dV as an alternative option)

Motorised wire terminal tester specifically designed for ease of use and rapid throughput.


The Tornado digital torque tester is ideally suited for the testing of application and removal torque on caps and closures.

Manually operated, the Tornado range has 4 models with capacities ranging from 1.5 - 10 N.m to cover almost all closures types and sizes.

Its ability to detect initial bridge torque and peak torque make it the instrument of choice for testing closures with tamper-evident seals.


The Orbis digital torque tester is ideally suited for basic clockwise and counter-clockwise torque tests.

Manually operated and measuring up to 6 N.m its capacity is ideal for most caps and closures which are intended to be opened by hand.

Mecmesin VFTI touchscreen force and torque indicator/display with Vector OS


A powerful and versatile touchscreen display unit for use with Mecmesin's 'Smart' range of interchangeable force and torque sensors. Ideal for testing where high accuracy and flexibility are key requirements.


The Captest digital torque tester is ideally suited for basic clockwise and counter-clockwise torque tests where the testing environment calls for greater protection.

Manually operated and measuring up to 5 N.m, its stainless-steel housing lends itself for testing caps and closures in medical & pharmaceutical clean-rooms and production areas where the risk of liquid splash is high.



The CFG+ digital force gauge represents a highly affordable alternative to mechanical gauges and features an accuracy of ±0.5% of full-scale.

There are 3 models available with maximum capacities of 50, 200 and 500 N.
