Vibrac® was founded in 1960 and has been designing and manufacturing precision electromechanical torque test equipment for customers whose applications commonly require important torque performance data for improving quality, product reliability and engineering design. Located in Manchester, New Hampshire (USA), Vibrac® manufactures a broad range of automated and manual precision torque testing systems for accurately measuring torque of numerous types of rotational devices.
Originally founded as a manufacturer of high performance magnetic particle clutches and brakes, Vibrac® has grown into a company that designs and manufactures high precision test systems that are consistently used for measuring torque of small motors, bearings, fasteners, bottle caps/closures, medical devices, knobs, switches, night vision sensors, aerospace components, and countless other devices. Vibrac’s reputation for producing reliable testing systems and torque sensors has earned Vibrac® high levels of respect with quality engineers and scientists from around the globe. Vibrac® customers are leaders in many industries, including the automotive, bearing, aerospace, defense, computer, cosmetic, beverage, chemical, hardware and academic fields.
Cap torque testing has been an integral part of the packaging industry’s quality control program for years. Cap torque testing helps prevent consumer complaints from difficult-to-open products, product leakage or spoilage from loose caps during transportation. Many packaging facilities use small, manual desktop models that are inconsistent and non-repeatable due to outside variables. A manual tester’s accuracy is affected by the operator’s physical size and strength as these factors can deform a cap and apply variable torque (variable acceleration), leading to an inaccurate result. Even something as simple as wet hands can cause slippage and affect the accuracy of manual cap testers. The cap inspector series serves the beverage, dairy, pharmaceutical, personal care, cosmetic, consumer product, automotive and chemical industries.
As the industry leader in precision motion test equipment market, Vibrac continues to develop advanced solutions to industrial testing problems. Sixty years of experience in the field of torque measurement is reflected in every Vibrac system. The new Model 2100 Cap Inspector is born from a long line of market leading cap test systems, and is our next generation cap torque analyzer. The Cap Inspector offers a range of improvements over the traditional Vibrac systems used and appreciated all over the world.
