The company starts the celebration of its 25th anniversary in October in Lucca

The German company emtec Electronic GmbH develops, produces and sells testing technologies worldwide and celebrates its 25th anniversary starting at MIAC 2020 in October in Lucca, Italy at booth no. 103. The company is proud of what has been achieved over the past few decades and looks back on successful businesses as well as great partnerships.emtecLogo 25years foremtecwebsite

In 1995 the company started with one device and four employees within the paper industry. Its founder and General Manager, Mr. Giselher Gruener developed a new measuring device for liquid penetration PDA Penetration Dynamics Analyzer to predict the gluing, printing and coating behavior of paper and board. Beside other developments the company introduced the first objective softness measuring device in 2006 to the tissue industry. The emtec TSA Tissue Softness Analyzer is probably the biggest success in emtec’s history. This success story is likely to continue in the textile and nonwovens industry, where manufacturers, chemical suppliers etc. have similar concerns, the haptic properties of a textile or nonwoven product are of utmost importance for consumers.

A further milestone was the introduction of the emtec ACA Ash Content Analyzer in 2012, which allows the determination of the total ash content as well as the individual minerals and fillers in paper and board non-destructive within seconds. The latest innovation for the pulp and paper industry is coming from a close partnership with AFG Analytics GmbH. The improved and new designed CAS touch! Charge Analyzing System and FPA touch! Fiber Potential Analyzer have been introduced in 2016. The two updated and upgraded test devices didn´t change their measuring principle, but with their small size and light weight, it is easy to carry them, the touchscreen enables an easy and intuitive handling and with the PC software deeper analyses of the tested material are possible.

In the meanwhile, the company has around 32 employees and offers 13 different devices with several modules in more than 80 countries with a global sales network of 32 independent representatives. All devices of the emtec product range are self-developed and unique on the market.

Visitors can register for free and visit emtec Electronic at the booth no. 24 in the machinery hall. The company showcases their emtec TSA Tactile Sensation Analyzer, that is able to measure haptic properties of fabrics as real softness, smoothness/structure, stiffness, compressibility, “crumple-ability”, the deformation and recovery.

If visitors are attracted by the innovative testing device, they have the chance to chat with a sales person directly at the virtual booth or send an email to the respective person.

The best practice for process and product optimization

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 stiffness. In the brain all three are combined to an overall impression of the haptic quality (hand feel or touch).TSA

The emtec TSA Tactile Sensation Analyzer is a testing device that measures these parameters objectively and independently. By special mathematical models, a hand feel value can be calculated, adapted to a certain market and product. Furthermore, the elongation and recovery characteristics can be measured with the device. The availability of the single parameters is helpful in the R&D, process optimization and trouble shooting, the calculated hand feel value is useful in the incoming control and quality assurance.

At this year’s CINTE techtextil China, emtec Electronic´s partner Jiu Mao Trading Company Limited will present the TSA Tactile Sensation Analyzer at their booth in the German Pavilion (Hall N1). Interested visitors are invited to bring their own samples for live testing.

Max Liu, General Manager of Jiu Mao Trading Company and his colleagues are looking forward to showcase the emtec innovation at the trade fair and to introduce the features and handling: “The emtec TSA is part of a major technological advance that we have seen in recent years. This innovation was simply not there before. Nowadays, it opens up new possibilities for reliable and fast controls for our customers. The quality of emtec products speaks for itself and naturally appeals to many visitors at conferences and trade fairs.”, Mr. Liu explains.
