April 18, 2018, Lakewood, Colorado – Thanks to custom cosmetic packaging, almost any type of container can be found in the cosmetic aisle. Products can be found in plastic jars, mist sprayers, foam bottles, roll-on containers, and dispensers, to name a few. With the plethora of package designs, the cosmetic industry has a great need for customizable torque analyzer solutions. This is the foundation of Mesa’s universal torque tooling.
Mesa’s Torque testers are customizable to shallow jars, short jars, tubes, and various unique cap and bottle types found in the cosmetic industry. New, thinner plastic bottles are increasing in popularity by bottlers because they are lighter and cheaper, thus reducing overhead costs and increasing the company’s environmental reputation. This trend, however, does create some issues for cap torque testers. The lighter plastic makes it more difficult for traditional torque testing devices to grip the bottles using standard techniques and equipment/accessories. Though not impossible, this difficulty can result in inconsistent and inaccurate testing results.
Mesa Labs offers various torque testing solutions for all types of cosmetic packaging designs.
