Torus are returning to China this year to exhibit our extensive metal packaging portfolio at Cannex & Fillex Asia Pacific 2018. The show runs from 15th-18th May at the China Import & Export Fair Pazhou Complex in Guangzhou, China and is a major international showcase for metal packaging manufacturing and filling technologies. The show has been running since 1994 and has been hosted in various countries including Thailand, USA, Netherlands, Singapore, Australia & China.


Over on booth #329 the Torus team will be on hand to show off our range of quality control equipment and demonstrate our “Enhanced” Z603 Opening Force Gauge, which has always proven to be a firm favourite in the Asian market. By automating the gathering of accurate, repeatable and unbiased data , the gauge can provide invaluable data relating to the opening performance of both SOT (Stay On Tab) & RPT (Ring Pull Tab) ends. This data allows process engineers to monitor wear and tear on the conversion press tooling and foresee potential out of spec score residuals, consequently limiting the risk of scrap or poor quality ends. Features measured on the enhanced Z603 include the following:

  • Pop Force
  • Pop Angle
  • Tear Force
  • Tear Angle
  • Tab Strength
  • Vent & Missile with an optional camera for aperture opening area & percentage measurement


So join us and mingle with other chief executives and technical specialists from canmakers, fillers, designers, equipment manufacturers and materials suppliers with exhibitors ranging from small start-up businesses to large multinationals. Sponsored and organised as always by the Canmaker magazine, Cannex is almost definitely a place meet up and discuss future projects with Torus.
