Emtec Electronic presents its popular TSA Softness Analyzer at the INS 2019

on .

Recently, the German company emtec Electronic GmbH celebrated a great success: at the beginning of this year the 300th TSA Softness Analyzer has been sold. The device is now used in 48 countries, in each part of the world. At the INS International Nonwovens Symposium 2019 in Vienna, Austria from June 12th to 13th, the company will present its popular softness testing instrument to the nonwovens industry at booth no. 22.73

The TSA Softness Analyzer enables an objective and reliable evaluation of the softness, roughness and stiffness of 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.

The German company emtec Electronic GmbH will attend the international trade fair Techtextil 2019 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany from May 14th to 17th. At booth no. C77 in hall 3.1, the company will present its innovative softness testing instrument for textiles and nonwovens:73

The TSA Softness Analyzer gives reliable and objective information about the three basic parameters, which determine the human feeling: the softness, roughness and stiffness of textiles and nonwovens. From these three parameters, an overall hand feel value can be calculated.

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 availability of these individual parameters helps to optimize the production and converting process as well as the product itself. Additionally, the data can be used in the R&D, incoming control, quality assurance and troubleshooting.

On April 11th, the German company emtec Electronic GmbH will present its TSA Softness Analyzer at the IDC International Detergency Conference in Düsseldorf, Germany. Mr. Alexander Grüner will speak about the original background and the new insights of the measurement method in his presentation “Objective measurement of the haptic properties of textile materials”.73

The TSA Softness Analyzer is already used in the tissue, nonwoven and textile industry and gives reliable and objective information about the three basic parameters, which determine the human feeling: the softness, roughness and stiffness. From these three, an overall hand feel value can be calculated, adapted to a certain market or 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.
