Trade in Your Discontinued Torque Tester

Mesa offers upgrades and trade-in offers for discontinued Torque Testers, such as the Torqo 1590 and 1502.

Design innovation has been considered to improve the mechanics of measuring torque to provide customers with improved ergonomics and repeatability. While Mesa Labs provides best-in-class calibration & evaluation services for all Torqo and SureTorque units, repair services for the old or unsupported models are expensive or not available.

The procedure is easy; simply provide the model number (i.e. 1502-30) as well as the serial number from the backside of the analyzer to a sales representative and a quotation for the Upgrade/Trade-In will be provided. The customer then simply returns the older unit to Mesa’s designated return location and Mesa will ship the new analyzer to the customer’s location.

Mesa will also provide the first annual calibration and NIST traceable certification with every Upgrade/trade in. The Torqo II+ and SureTorque analyzers include a full one-year warranty covering all parts and labor.

The LaserCube HGA by Bonfiglioli

The latest non-destructive, non-invasive laser-based inspection technology for measuring the headspace level of gases, The LaserCube HGA by Bonfiglioli is available for demos. The Bonfig Laser Cube is a compact and lightweight system that is easy to use and set up via integrated PC and any wireless touchscreen tablet. Get in touch now and schedule a demo right away.

LASERCUBE provides inspection solution for leak detection and container closure integrity testing (CCIT) by measuring the headspace level of gases, such as oxygen and carbon dioxide, as well as monitoring moisture levels.

HGA is suited for accurate investigation of translucent containers and pharmaceutical finished containers, as well as headspace conditions for products packaged under modified atmosphere and closure integrity, even where headspace is limited. The technology is designed to make Etalon effect negligible. It also removes any need for nitrogen purging during oxygen measuring.

 

 

The system features:

  • Low power consumption
  • Compact and lightweight design
  • Set-up via integrated PC or any wireless-connected touchscreen tablet or smartphone
  • Fully automated test cycle sequencing with manual loading and unloading of containers
  • Data storage and export (production, raw data, events, alarms)
  • Easy-to-use HMIU integrated functions
  • HMI real time display of statistics and raw data
  • Engineered to comply with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and EU Annex 11

Warehouse Mapping-Mesa Labs

The changing weather can greatly impact certain areas of your warehouse, and these temperatures changes may affect your product. Will temperature mapping your warehouse only once provide enough information to understand the storage conditions in the warehouse during the coldest time of the year (high use of heating) and warmest time of the year (high use of A/C) or should your warehouse be mapped multiple times so that your products are not potentially damaged?

Mesa’s Compliance and Validation Services experts will work with you and your team to review every potential variable that may impact the viability of your product. We will determine the risk factors by considering all HVAC activity and control, loading dock location and activity to develop criteria for and execution of a thermal mapping.

We will also establish acceptance criteria. The temperature and relative humidity acceptance criteria for each product is determined by testing conducted per the FDA Guidance Document – Stability Testing of New Drug Substances and Products, or similar guidance. The data logging system will be determined, a diagram will be developed, and the length of the study will be defined. Finally, Mesa experts will place the data loggers in the appropriate locations throughout your warehouse and collect the resulting data.

By performing regular mappings of your warehouse, you can greatly reduce the risk to your products by varying temperatures when the seasons change.

TAMPER EVIDENT LABELLING SOLUTIONS TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE FALSIFIED MEDICINES DIRECTIVE (FMD)

The Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) 2011/62/EU will come in to force by February 2019. This directive requires two mandatory safety features that will enable medicines to be verified and authenticated along the supply chain:

Tamper evident features on the carton. A unique identifier (2D data matrix code and human readable information) on the carton.

Newman’s range of automatic tamper evident labellers enables our customers to meet these new regulations, whilst also providing high levels of flexibility, quality and reliability. Designed to apply a range of self-adhesive tamper-evident, anti-counterfeit and hologram labels, a single machine can handle a wide range of carton types and sizes without the need for change parts.

The CTE350 is a tamper-evident labeller that operates at speeds of up to 350 cartons per minute and, measuring just over 1m in length, is ideal for integrating in to lines where space is at a premium. The CTE450 operates at speeds of up to 400 cartons per minute and, with track and trace serialization capability, meets the requirements of the Falsified Medicines Directive.

Specifically designed for healthcare applications, the CTE350 and CTE450 have a stainless steel/GMP construction and are available with full Validation Documentation Package. In addition, Newman Labeling Systems is able to integrate different print and inspection systems to meet our customers specific requirements.

As a design and manufacturing company, Newman thrives on the challenges that our customers bring to us! If you have a specific labeling requirement then please let us know.
