The German manufacturer of specialized testing equipment will present its innovative softness measuring device, the TSA Tactile Sensation Analyzer, at the Hygienix 2022 from November 14-17 in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.  Leipzig, Germany, 14.09.2022 – When it comes to rethinking hygiene products, it pays to have hard data on hand. Specific, objective knowledge about the haptic qualities of wet wipes, diapers, or feminine sanitary pads, for example, can lead to the development of a more aesthetically pleasing product line geared toward the preferences of the target market. Even small changes...

emtec Electronic’s measuring devices presented by Jiu Mao Trading Company Limited at the CINTE techtextil in Shanghai, China. Between September 02nd and 04th, the CINTE techtextil, opens its doors in Shanghai, China. Our partner Jiu Mao Trading Company Limited will be on site to present emtec Electronic’s TSA Tactile Sensation Analyzer. The human feeling is a complex process realized by four different receptors inside the human skin. These receptors are responsible to feel the three basic haptic parameters softness (micro-surface variations), roughness (macro-surface variations) and in-plane...

  • Produktbeschreibung:

    The touch or comfort of a nonwoven or textile product becomes a more and more important quality parameter. Different expectations of different people, especially when they are coming from completely different parts in the world make it hard to create the right mix of soft and smooth and flexible or stiff. Additionally each type of nonwoven or textile product needs its own mix, a t-shirt needs to feel different compared to a pair of jeans, a wet wipe needs to feel different compared to a baby diaper. Humans can rank or rate different qualities of a nonwoven or textile product according to the overall haptic impression. But for a human it is hard to say, why one product is preferred over the other, is it because of a softer or smoother feel or is one a bit more flexible than the other one? Those questions cannot be answered by hand tests.

    The emtec TSA Tactile Sensation Analyzer in comparison to this measures the three basic haptic parameters micro-surface variations (determine the feeling of softness), macro-surface variations (determine the feeling of smoothness) and the stiffness. Besides the three, plasticity and hysteresis, which determine the recovery, and the elasticity (elongation) are measured objectively and individually by the device. From all these parameters, a hand feel value (touch, comfort) can be calculated by algorithms. The algorithms need to be adapted to the market where the tested product is supposed to be sold and to its application. Hand feel values, calculated by adapted algorithms, often show a correlation of up to almost 100 percent to the human perception.

The emtec TSA measures softness, roughness and stiffness of textiles and nonwovens objectively and reliably. Together with the stiffness, the elasticity, plasticity and hysteresis, which determine the elongation as well as the recovery behavior of the material, are measured. By the help of mathematical models, so-called hand feel values can be calculated, which correlate very well with the human expectation.

  • 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...
