Flip Cap Opening

Bottles or containers of today are getting updated with flip cap openers. The use of normal screw bottle caps has been reduced with more easy and advanced cap designs in the market. But with new upcoming design, new strategies should also be appointed for testing its quality. Flip cap opening tester is designed to test the strength amount utilized for opening the flip cap of bottles and containers.

Flip Cap Opening Tester is utilized for assessing the flip cap strength, which is an important criterion for quality assurance of the product. A uniform amount of force is applied to the flip Cap specimen and the test data is recorded through an accurate force-measuring device. Once the peak level of force is recorded successfully on the force scale, a reading will be automatically stored in gauge memory.

For a number of “semi-solid” Cosmetics, Food and FMCG products like moisturizers, gels, and shampoos, etc flip caps are a standard closure. Tension and compression testing is done to evaluate opening and closing. This process helps in ensuring that leaks are prevented at the time of use (usually when contents are upside-down and their weight is used on the flip-cap), while being easy enough to be opened and closed by the end user. Moreover, the hinge strength can also be tested to check whether it can withstand frequent use without breaking off.
