Emtec test equipment enables a very exact evaluation of the relevant paper and board properties

Elof Hansson and emtec Electronic at ACOTEPAC 2020 in Cali, Colombia

From February 12th to 14th emtec presents its innovative measuring instruments for the pulp, paper and board industry at the ACOTEPAC conference (booth no. 56). The use of these devices enables a more efficient and reliable process and quality control from the wet end to the finished product and helps to achieve the best possible quality at the lowest possible costs.FPA touchCAS touch Website

At the ACOTEPAC interested visitors can take a look at the Charge Analyzing System CAS touch! and the Fiber Potential Analyzer FPA touch!, two devices, which measure the particle charge and the surface charge of fibers. The easy handling, light weight and small size makes them an ideal partner. What the FPA touch! achieves with high accuracy in the laboratory, its “big brother”, the Fiber Zeta Potential Analyzer Online FPO achieves directly in the production process, to which it is directly connected. Up to four fully automatic measurements per hour are possible. The results can be provided online, but can also be transferred to the computer system of the mill. The permanent control allows an immediate reaction, in case it becomes necessary.

Together with our Colombian partner Alberto Marin, from Elof Hansson, our area manager, Daniel Ohndorf, will attend the conference of the Colombian papermakers once again in 2020. Besides the wet-end test devices CAS touch! and FPA touch!, the EST12 emtec Surface & Sizing Tester will be presented at the booth. By the help of the device, the surface sizing or more general the surface hydrophobia and the surface pore structure of paper and board can be evaluated. Both parameters have a big influence to the converting relevant quality characteristics printability, coatability and gluability.

Emtec Electronic with innovative testing instruments at TITAS 2019 in Taipei

IMG 6133Leipzig, Germany 23.09.2019 - For the fourth time, the German company emtec Electronic GmbH will present its innovative testing equipment to the textile industry, together with the Chinese and Taiwanese representatives Mr. Max Liu (Jiu Mao) and Mr. Chiang (TechOne). Please visit our booth no. L527a to have a look at the device and to get a detailed explanation of:

The TSA – Tactile Sensation Analyzer. The device enables an objective evaluation of the softness, roughness and stiffness of a textile fabric. 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.

The FPA and CAS touch! are two instruments, which are very interesting for the textile industry as well. The FPA measures the surface charge of the fibers (zeta potential), which provides information about the efficiency of the interaction of certain additives with the textile fiber. The CAS touch! is able to show how long and stable certain additives stay on the textile fiber.

Objective measurement of softness – now even possible with hand sheets

Emtec Electronic at Tissue World Sao Paulo, Brazil

Leipzig, Germany 06.09.2019 – With the emtec TSA Softness Analyzer, the objective measurement of the three basic parameters that determine the human feeling is already possible and the method is well accepted in the industry. At the Tissue World Sao Paulo, Brazil, from October 22th to 24th, the company will present its well-known softness testing instrument and some very helpful upgrade possibilities on the device at booth no G13.

The human feeling is a very complex process and realized by four different receptors in the human skin. This makes it difficult to measure for an objective testing device. The hand feel, which is the perceived feeling by a human when touching a piece of tissue is determined by three basic parameters, the softness (micro-surface variations), the roughness (macro-surface variations) and the in-plane stiffness. With the emtec TSA it is possible to measure these parameters objective and independently. From the three measured values, a hand feel value can be calculated, which correlates very well with the human expectation. The measuring results of the device allow an efficient process control and process optimization, QA, incoming control, R&D, trouble shooting and so on.

Besids the TSA, interested visitors can have a look at the CAS touch! Charge Analyzing System and FPA touch! Fiber Pozential Analyzer, two devices, which measure the particle charge and the surface charge of fibers. The easy handling, light weight and small size makes them to an ideal partner especially for chemical suppliers. 

Together with our Brazilian partners from Elof Hansson, area manager Daniel Ohndorf will be at the booth to discuss the devices and to introduce very exciting TSA news. Special changes at the device and in the measuring method allow to measure the influence of different fiber mixes (long/short fiber ratio for example) to the tissue softness by testing hand sheets. Especially tissue makers, chemical suppliers and pulp producers should be interested.

Visitors are welcome to bring samples to the booth for quick tests, which can give a first impression of the possibilities of the device.
