Emtec Electronic measures the Softness of Wipes in Atlanta

on .

From June 25th to 27th the WoW World of Wipes 2019 takes place in Atlanta, Georgia, USA and the German company emtec Electronic will attend. At booth no. 409, the company will present its popular TSA Softness Analyzer, together with its American representative Technidyne Corporation.

At the beginning of this year, emtec Electronic celebrated a great success: the 300th TSA Softness Analyzer has been sold. The device is now used in 48 countries, in each part of the world. Beside the tissue and textile industry, also the nonwovens sector enjoys the advantages that accrued by the application of the softness measurement device.73

The TSA Softness Analyzer enables an objective and reliable evaluation of the softness, roughness and stiffness of wipes and other nonwovens. From these three parameters, an overall hand feel value can be calculated, adapted to a certain market and product. This hand feel value can be used in the quality control, for example. The advantage of the three single parameters appears in a huge amount of chances in the optimization of the production and converting processes, and in the development of new products with certain haptic properties.

Included into the softness measurement is the measurement of the viscoelastic, elastic and plastic properties, which are represented by the elasticity, plasticity and hysteresis. With an extra module, the compressibility can be measured.

For the first time emtec Electronic will attend Paper Vietnam 2019

on .

The pulp and paper industry will meet at the international exhibition and conference Paper Vietnam 2019 in Ho Chi Minh City from June 26th to 28th. Emtec Electronic, the German developer and producer of innovative testing instruments, will attend for the first time. Together with the Southeast Asian representative CLC Certified Lab Consultant, the company showcases a variety of its innovations at booth no. P65.

For the FPA touchCAS touch Websitewet-end in paper and board production, the smallest, lightest and most-modern charge measuring systems are the CAS touch! and the FPA touch! The use of both instruments in the production process helps to optimize the utilization of chemicals with the target to stabilize the process, to improve the product quality and to reduce costs.

Besides this, the EST12 emtec Surface & Sizing Tester is shown. A useful tool to determine those surface properties of paper and board, that are relevant for the converting process, in particular the surface hydrophobia (sizing) as well as the surface porosity. Both parameters help to predict the converting behavior while printing, coating and gluing and enable the optimal runnability during the converting processes of paper and board.

Emtec Electronic with its successful innovations at the Zellcheming Expo

on .

The pulp, paper and supplier industry will meet also this year at the Zellcheming Expo 2019 in Frankfurt/Main, Germany. From June 25th to 27th the company emtec Electronic will present their innovative measuring devices in hall 4.1 at the booth no. G18, by which the complete production process can be controlled and guided in the right direction.

At the beginning of this year, emtec Electronic celebrated a great success: the 300th TSA Tissue Softness Analyzer has been sold. The device is now u73sed in 48 countries, in each part of the world. Especially for tissue products, the TSA gives reliable and objective information about the three basic parameters, which determine the human feeling, the softness, roughness and stiffness. From these three, an overall hand feel value can be calculated.
New for hand sheet measurements: an updated version of the TSA and an improved measuring method for hand sheets (made in the lab) enables a reliable prediction of the final product quality in the lab without expensive machine trials.

Two of the mFPA touchCAS touch Websiteost-modern measuring systems for the wet-end are the CAS touch! to measure the particle charge, and the FPA touch! to measure the surface charge of fibers. The small and light devices help to optimize the utilization of chemicals with the target to stabilize the process, to improve the product quality and to reduce costs.

The ACA Ash Content Analyzer enables the determination of the mineral filler content without combustion, that means without destruction of the samples, within seconds. Both, the total mineral filler content, as well as the individual filler components (e.g. calcium carbonate, kaolin/talcum, titanium dioxide, iron oxide) and their percentage distribution are measured.

Besides this, the EST12 emtec Surface & Sizing Tester is shown. A device to determine important and for the converting relevant paper surface properties such as surface hydrophobia / sizing as well as the surface porosity, which influence printability, coatability and gluability of paper and board. The PDA.C02 Penetration Dynamics Analyzer as modular system is the equivalent, that delivers additional information by the use of different modules.
