Emtec test devices allow a detailed evaluation of paper and board characteristics

Emtec Electronic at MIAC 2019 in Lucca, Italy

Leipzig, Germany 06.09.2019 – From October 09th to 11th, the German developer and producer of innovative testing equipment, emtec Electronic GmbH, will present a variety of its test instruments. The application of this equipment enables an efficient process and process control from the wet end to the finished product and helps to achieve the best possible quality with the lowest possible cost.

The state-of-the-art charge measuring systems for the wet end in paper and board production are the CAS touch! and the FPA touch! (small, light and easy to handle).

The use of both instruments in the production process helps to optimize the consumption of chemicals, to stabilize the process, to improve the product quality and to reduce costs.IMG 1373

Besides this, the emtec ACA Ash Content Analyzer aims to overcome the disadvantages of the traditional combustion method. The innovative lab instrument replaces combustion with x-ray technology, enabling the non-destructive measurement of individual mineral fillers in paper and board. Time consuming test procedures are no longer necessary and the data are available quickly. In comparison to the combustion method, not only the total ash content can be measured. With the ACA it is possible to measure the content of the individual fillers and pigments with an accuracy of up 0.1 – 0.3% (abs.)

In addition to the three devices mentioned above, further products, e.g. the emtec TSA Tissue Softness Analyzer can be seen and discussed at our booth. Very interesting is a new developed test method, which allows the measurement of hand sheets with the device.

For more information, please visit our booth (booth no. 171), where you can meet our area manager for the region, Philipp Sievers.

Emtec Electronic measures the Softness of Wipes in Atlanta

From June 25th to 27th the WoW World of Wipes 2019 takes place in Atlanta, Georgia, USA and the German company emtec Electronic will attend. At booth no. 409, the company will present its popular TSA Softness Analyzer, together with its American representative Technidyne Corporation.

At the beginning of this year, emtec Electronic celebrated a great success: the 300th TSA Softness Analyzer has been sold. The device is now used in 48 countries, in each part of the world. Beside the tissue and textile industry, also the nonwovens sector enjoys the advantages that accrued by the application of the softness measurement device.73

The TSA Softness Analyzer enables an objective and reliable evaluation of the softness, roughness and stiffness of wipes and other nonwovens. From these three parameters, an overall hand feel value can be calculated, adapted to a certain market and product. This hand feel value can be used in the quality control, for example. The advantage of the three single parameters appears in a huge amount of chances in the optimization of the production and converting processes, and in the development of new products with certain haptic properties.

Included into the softness measurement is the measurement of the viscoelastic, elastic and plastic properties, which are represented by the elasticity, plasticity and hysteresis. With an extra module, the compressibility can be measured.

For the first time emtec Electronic will attend Paper Vietnam 2019

The pulp and paper industry will meet at the international exhibition and conference Paper Vietnam 2019 in Ho Chi Minh City from June 26th to 28th. Emtec Electronic, the German developer and producer of innovative testing instruments, will attend for the first time. Together with the Southeast Asian representative CLC Certified Lab Consultant, the company showcases a variety of its innovations at booth no. P65.

For the FPA touchCAS touch Websitewet-end in paper and board production, the smallest, lightest and most-modern charge measuring systems are the CAS touch! and the FPA touch! The use of both instruments in the production process helps to optimize the utilization of chemicals with the target to stabilize the process, to improve the product quality and to reduce costs.

Besides this, the EST12 emtec Surface & Sizing Tester is shown. A useful tool to determine those surface properties of paper and board, that are relevant for the converting process, in particular the surface hydrophobia (sizing) as well as the surface porosity. Both parameters help to predict the converting behavior while printing, coating and gluing and enable the optimal runnability during the converting processes of paper and board.
