Mecmesin, a UK company specialising in force- and torque-testing equipment, will demonstrate two new testing systems developed to optimise design and ensure consistency in manufacture at the Composites Show, which is being organised by UK Tech Events.

The Vortex-xt and Multitest-xt are suitable for engineers in the aerospace, automotive and medical device industries who need to measure clockwise and counter-clockwise torque when developing and manufacturing rotary components.

Typical applications include positive ’click’ on engagement of aerospace, automotive and medical device controls such as ignition switches, valves and automotive stalks.

Key specifications


  • Cuts recall costs by improving production line efficiency and reducing wastage
  • Has been designed for quality-control managers who need a simple, accurate, yet rugged torque-testing system for the production floor or QC laboratory
  • No PC is required, making it suitable for production areas
  • Rated to 10N


  • Enables tension and compression tests to be carried out at the touch of a button on samples straight from the production line
  • Sealed touchscreen houses a simple user-interface, suitable for any level of operator
  • Programming functions, test data and evaluation tools are all accessed via a straightforward menu, enabling quick selection and commencement of tests
  • In ‘quick test’ mode, a test can be chosen and started with a couple of taps to the screen
  • Available in seven capacities from low-force measurement ranges including 1,000N, 2,500N and 5000N up to high-capacity twin-column test systems, which include 10,000N, 25,000N and 50,000N

The Composites Engineering Show

The Composites Engineering Show is the UK's only annual showcase of suppliers and partners to the rapidly growing composite design and manufacturing industries. According to Peter Chivers, managing director at the National Composites Centre, it is the pre-eminent event in the UK composites calendar. He said: 'This fast-growing industry needs a place to discuss latest developments and to share best practice in manufacturing. The show plays an important role in facilitating these exchanges and in publicising the latest technological advances.'

The UK Plastic Electronics Show

The UK’s first trade show and industry briefing provides opportunities for product development and engineering teams to realise the huge design and commercial opportunities in the organic and printed electronics industries. The UK Plastic Electronics Show brings the growing number of supply chain partners together with their customers developing everything from displays to lighting, PVs, sensors, clothing, smart systems and more.

Energy Engineering

Energy Engineering is the UK’s first ‘100 per cent engineering focused’ business forum and supply chain showcase for UK-based power supply chains within conventional thermal power, nuclear and renewables industries. From plant management and engineering teams in utilities and IPP/NUG installations, through to key plant OEM’s, EPC contractors and component, parts, plant equipment, tools, technology and engineering service providers, Energy Engineering provides a unique networking point for the UK power generation engineering lifecycle.
