Fowler Products Inks Deal To Distribute AT2E Torque & Leak Testing Equipment

    ATHENS, GA., April 18 /CNW/ - Fowler Products, a division of Pro Mach,
has signed an agreement with AT2E (Pontcarre, France) to become the exclusive
U.S. distributor of AT2E's manual and automatic torquemeters as well as leak
testing systems for beverage, pharmaceutical, food, cosmetic and chemical
packaging applications. The manual TMV-5 and automatic ADATMV-5 torquemeters
measure the removal torque of closures accurately and nondestructively,
providing real-time information to customers' quality control data collection
systems. AT2E's manual PBV-1 and automatic PBV-2 leak testers measure the
point at which seal failure occurs under pressure. AT2E torque and leak
testing units can be used with both plastic and metal closures that are
applied to either plastic, glass or metal containers.

    "For more than 37 years, Fowler has been a leading manufacturer of
capping machines in the U.S.," said Andy Monroe, Fowler's sales and marketing
manager. "By now offering the advanced capabilities of AT2E torque and leak
testers, we can provide our customers with the necessary technology to monitor
the performance of their cappers as an integrated system."

    Test data from manual units can be correlated to capping head position
and entered into available AT2E software which stores the results and can
calculate trend analysis on the data over time to monitor both the performance
of the overall capping machine as well as the performance of individual
capping heads.

    Automatic units can be incorporated into the packaging line and
integrated with a reject/sampling system to automate these quality assurance
tests and data reporting features.
