  • Produktbeschreibung:

    With the combustion method according to ISO 2144, DIN 54370, TAPPI T 413 and 211, which is traditionally applied in the paper industry, the total content and a few selected individual fillers can only be determined through an extremely time- and energy-consuming and in routine operation relatively inaccurate combustion of the samples at different temperatures (+/- 5%, operator dependent!). The combustion method is also disadvantageous due to its destructive measuring procedure.

    By the use of the emtec ACA Ash Content Analyzer with its new and innovative measuring principle the total ash content (fillers and pigments), but also the percentage content of the typical fillers in the paper industry can be determined within seconds without combustion of the samples, i.e., non-destructive.

    The quick measuring procedure leads to an almost instant availability of measuring results and therefore allows for an indeed immediate reaction to changes in the process:

    • Immense material savings can be achieved through the reduction of process fluctuations
    • The consumption of fillers can be reduced, as the immediate availability of results and the high accuracy of the ACA enables the narrowing down of the specifications for the filler content in the finished product, resulting in a much more efficiently organized process optimization (e.g. retention optimization)
    • Costs for energy of the combustion process can be saved. Thus, the use of the new measuring device guarantees a fast "return on investment" by a substantial reduction of costs in material, time, and energy

The TSA – Tissue Softness Analyzer represents a nearly perfect simulation of the human hand and shows excellent results in measuring base tissue and finished tissue products (toilet paper, handkerchiefs, facials). In case of hand sheets made in the lab, the device also convinced in measuring the influence of pulp quality (short fibers), refining or softener. But it was limited until now to measure the influence of different compositions of long and short fibers to the softness of hand sheets, and thus, to predict the haptic quality of tissue products. The German company emtec Electronic, which...

  • Untersuchung von:
    • Eigenschaft: tissue
  • Vorteile:
    • Vorteil: objective measurement of the softness, roughness and stiffness (results for each parameter individually available)
    • Vorteil: measurement of the compressibility, crumplability and burst resistance with special modules possible
    • Vorteil: calculation of a so-called hand feel (HF) value by different mathematical models
    • Vorteil: very good correlation with the human tactile sensation
    • Vorteil: accurate and reliable
    • Vorteil: easy handling
    • Vorteil: transportable
  • Produktbeschreibung:

    Softness, roughness and stiffness are the three basic haptic parameters, which determine the human hand feel. But, in comparison to the human hand, the device provides these three parameters as individual values. By the help of special algorithms, these three single parameters can be combined to so-called hand feel (HF) values. With the right mathematical model, a correlation to the human expectation of up to almost 100 percent is possible.

    The emtec TSA Tissue Softness Analyzer is already subject of a released TAPPI Technical Information Paper (TIP). The critically peer-reviewed technical specification document investigates the specialized measuring instrument that is able to simulate the sensory properties of the human hand when touching tissue paper products. TAPPI TIP 0808-07, titled “Objective Determination of the Haptic Properties of Tissue Products, Technical Information Paper TIP 0808-07 (2021)” covers the theoretical background of haptics, how the TSA device measures the three basic parameters for determining haptic feel, and discusses application possibilities for the paper manufacturing process and quality assurance.

Traditionally, the hand feel of a tissue product  has  been tested by the human hand, in the best case by human hand panels. The human feeling depends on several factors, e.g. personal and market specific preferences, the daily mood and the culture. A further disadvantage is the inability to feel the three basic haptic parameters, which determine the overall haptic impression of a material that is touched by the hand.  The emtec TSA Tissue Softness Analyzer objectively measures the micro-surface variations (feeling of softness), the macro-surface variations (feeling of roughness) and the in-plane...
