DSS - Dimension Stability System

Modular Measuring System for the Investigation of the Dimension Stability of Paper/Board/Foils in Contact with Temperature or Liquids

DSS Dimension Stability System

  • Prediction of the converting properties of paper/board/foils concerning the dimension stability at thermal load up to 230°C
  • Measurement of the dynamics of the change in dimension of paper by means of one-sided contact with water based liquids under adjustable tension
  • Main applications:
    • Coating base paper, decor paper, newsprint paper, offset printing paper,
      label paper, ink jet paper, kraft liner etc in contact with:
      • water
      • fountain solution
      • ink jet ink
      • melamine resin
      • gravure ink
    • Runnability at professional laser printing machines and copy machines
    • Register
      • four color laser printing
      • offset printing
      • rotogravure printing
    • Fluting tendency with LWC papers
    • Staple problems at professional offset-, copy and laser printing paper
  • Special applications:
    • plastic foils,
    • pre-impregnates,
    • wall papers,
    • filter paper
  • Features
    • Modular measuring unit with modules to measure the wet stretch/heat shrinkage
    • Temperature adjustment via PC software
    • Includes measurement of paper moistness, humidity and ambient temperature
    • Change in dimension in MD and CD can be measured separately
    • Measuring results:
      • Dimension-Time-Diagram
      • Change in dimension at a selectable time point
    • Measuring range:
      • Stretching up to approx. 27%
      • Shrinkage up to approx. 5%
    • High accuracy
    • Measuring temperature: from ambient temperature up to max. 230°C (heat shrinkage)
    • Testing liquids:
      • low viscous,
      • aqueous liquids (wet stretch)
    • Efficient and user-friendly software
    • Export of the measuring data into MS EXCEL by a single mouse click
    • Easy to handle
    • Compact and robust construction
    • Non interference prone
