Torus will be on the move again in May to exhibit over in the USA at the NPE exhibition in Orlando, Florida. NPE is a must-attend event for anyone in any way associated with the plastics industry. Known as the world’s leading plastics tradeshow and conference, NPE allows you to tap into the tools and emerging technologies shaping the future of the industry. It’s our first time exhibiting at this particular show and therefore we are extremely excited to be able to attend and discuss Torus’ recent developments as well as offer customers gauge demonstrations & information on our latest plastic packaging innovations. You will be able to find Spencer Whale, our Technical Sales Manager as well as Greg Schultz & the team from Torus Americas in South Hall Level 1 in the Bottle Zone on Booth S10073.


For the very first time in America, customers will be able to see our newly developed semi-automated B302 Thread, Body & Thickness gauge for plastic bottles and preforms on display. The B302 came about through working together with customers to come up with an updated solution to existing methods. The 6-axis measurement gauge combines automatic thread start and bottle alignment routines with the most recent non-contact confocal white-light technology to measure wall thickness, and the latest vision technology to measure neck finish, body dimensions and perpendicularity. This gives the operator the ability to take unrivalled, non-contact dimensions in one single operation without operator influence. Thus providing savings in labour, time and material costs whilst creating a new standard for plastic packaging quality control.


Customers can also expect to see demonstrations of the proven B303 Bottle Burst Gauge, which provides pressure and volume expansion testing for plastic packaging containers and can be used to verify containers meet minimum pressure capabilities and/or industry specifications. The B303 can be utilized in a laboratory or alongside manufacturing lines.


The team will of course also be able to offer detailed information on the other equipment in our range - the B300 Bottle Wall Thickness Gauge, B301 Semi-Automatic Preform Gauge, B304 Top Load & Volume Gauge and the B305 Automatic Preform Inspection System.


Spencer Whale – Technical Sales Manager for Plastic Packaging at Torus speaks about NPE, “It’s an exciting time for Torus. Over the past 5 years we have been developing a line of equipment. During this development period we have drawn on over 25 years of metrology experience to bring new, innovative ways of measuring all kinds of plastic packaging containers. This innovation has been very well received, therefore our customer base in this field is growing rapidly. Torus can now offer the industry a full solution of quality control equipment using the latest cutting edge technologies. Along with our USA based Service and Support team, I look forward to demonstrating our capabilities at NPE for the first time in May.”
