The TSA - Nonwoven Softness Analyzer at emtec booth no. 546 at the ANEX 2018
Emtec Electronic presents its testing device and offers measurements of samples at its booth
Emtec Electronic, a developer and manufacturer of specialized test devices for the paper, nonwoven and textile industry from Leipzig, Germany, will showcase its TSA Softness Analyzer for Nonwovens at the ANEX 2018 during the exhibition days June 6 - 8, 2018. The emtec TSA - Nonwoven Softness Analyzer can measure the three basic parameters, which determine the human feeling. These three basic parameters are the softness, the smoothness and the stiffness. By different mathematical models, a hand feel (HF) value can be calculated, correlating very well with the human expectation. Tests have shown a correlation between 90 and 100 %, which indicates a possible substitution of the subjective hand test by this objective measuring method. The TSA includes also a measurement of the elastic, visco-elastic and plastic properties. In particular, the availability of the three basic parameters offers a great number of possibilities for R&D, process and product optimization and quality assurance.
During the exhibition, the booth visitors are invited to bring their samples for measurement of the softness.
