Mecmesin design and manufacture force, materials and torque test systems that are accurate, reliable and excellent value for money. Mecmesin test solutions are used by leading pharmaceutical, medical device and packaging manufacturers across the world. From factory floor through to the R&D laboratory we understand your industry-specific requirements whether it be IQ/OQ/PQ or FDA 21 CFR Part 11


The pharmaceutical industry is tightly controlled and subject to strict regulations, which means that testing is often at the heart of demonstrating compliance to the various international standards, which govern the industry.  Stringent performance and safety-critical criteria must be met to operate and produce successfully. 

Mecmesin offer a variety of test systems to guarantee safety-critical criteria are met and the quality of pharmaceutical products, medical devices and pharmaceutical packaging is guaranteed. Our test software ensures traceable results with full storage of raw data, a robust audit trail, full operator security and guaranteed repeatability.
