Usage/Specification Quote/Delivery Repair/Calibration


This torque gauge enables to measure screw cap bottle Opening/Closure torque.
Accurate torque measurement and easy data management are possible.
The included software and various output signals support your data management.
It is possible to perform higher repeatabile torque measurement when combining with Torque Stand MTS series.*

[Mutual Features and Functions of DTXS/DTXA series]

For Accurate Torque Measurement
IMADA Screw Cap Torque Tester DTX series measure torque in CW/CCW.
The accuracy +/-0.5% F.S. and the 2000Hz high speed sampling rate capture accurate force values of testing.
The capacity is 2N-m(200N-cm) to 10N-m(1000N-cm).

Useful Functions
DTX series equips a lot of useful functions for torque measurement.
Peak hold function, Data saving function (up to 1000 points to the internal memory), Pass/Fail decision and more.

Ideal for Data Management
Many types of output signals are available such as USB, analog, RS232C and more.
Connecting with a processor, data output is possible at no PC environment.
The included software Force logger supports DTX data output from the internal memory to a PC.
Moreover, drawing a torque- time graph on PC is possible at 2000 data/sec
by the optional software Force Recorder (Light / Standard).

[DTXA series Original Function]

Direct Data Output for a USB Flash Drive
Not only stored data but also continuous data can be output
for a USB flash drive at 100Hz, 50Hz or 1Hz. ( The sampling rate is selectable.)

Capturing 1st peak/2nd peak
This torque gauge captures the highest peak torque and 2nd highest peak torque without PC.

Displacement I/O
Torque- Angle measurement is possible when combining with Torque Stand MTS series equipping a rotary encoder.
(Torque-Angle Measurement Unit is available which includes necessary items of Torque-Angle Measurement.
Please see Torque-Angle Measurement Unit TAA-MTS-TB series if you are interested in).

[Testing Applications]
Screw cap (jar lid) opening torque test >>
Key turning torque test >>
Lipstick container turning force test >>
