Product Discontinuation Notification
ST-120 Discontinuation Announcement
October 9th, 2014
Dear Mesa Customer,
As of July 1, 2015, Mesa Labs is discontinuing production of its SureTorque ST-120
semiautomatic torque tester. It is our intention to accept RMA submissions on this
product until July 1, 2024.
In order to continue to provide timely service and reduced costs for our customers,
this discontinuation is necessary given that this unit relies on outdated technology.
As a replacement for the ST-120, we recommend the ST-120S as it is a similar
model offering the same capabilities, however it is based on much newer technology and will be serviceable and maintained for many years to come.
The discontinued ST-120 has a pneumatically controlled torque drive, LCD screen
with membrane keypad and typically 180 degrees rotation range. The replacement
model is the ST-120S based on a newer, servo based torque controller, the same
strain gage based torque transducer, position and pressure sensors for rotation and
gripping pressure monitoring, “unlimited” rotation range and a color touchscreen.
The ST-120S has been proven in production facilities and packaging laboratories
around the world and it will be serviceable for many more years to come.

to come. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email us at
