  • Produktbeschreibung:

    The touch or comfort of a nonwoven or textile product becomes a more and more important quality parameter. Different expectations of different people, especially when they are coming from completely different parts in the world make it hard to create the right mix of soft and smooth and flexible or stiff. Additionally each type of nonwoven or textile product needs its own mix, a t-shirt needs to feel different compared to a pair of jeans, a wet wipe needs to feel different compared to a baby diaper. Humans can rank or rate different qualities of a nonwoven or textile product according to the overall haptic impression. But for a human it is hard to say, why one product is preferred over the other, is it because of a softer or smoother feel or is one a bit more flexible than the other one? Those questions cannot be answered by hand tests.

    The emtec TSA Tactile Sensation Analyzer in comparison to this measures the three basic haptic parameters micro-surface variations (determine the feeling of softness), macro-surface variations (determine the feeling of smoothness) and the stiffness. Besides the three, plasticity and hysteresis, which determine the recovery, and the elasticity (elongation) are measured objectively and individually by the device. From all these parameters, a hand feel value (touch, comfort) can be calculated by algorithms. The algorithms need to be adapted to the market where the tested product is supposed to be sold and to its application. Hand feel values, calculated by adapted algorithms, often show a correlation of up to almost 100 percent to the human perception.

The emtec TSA measures softness, roughness and stiffness of textiles and nonwovens objectively and reliably. Together with the stiffness, the elasticity, plasticity and hysteresis, which determine the elongation as well as the recovery behavior of the material, are measured. By the help of mathematical models, so-called hand feel values can be calculated, which correlate very well with the human expectation. The TSA measuring instrument and measuring method are internationally patented and protected.

  • Produktbeschreibung:

    The new TSA measures - like its previous model - the softness, smoothness and flexibility of base and finished products objectively and reliably. Moreover, specific hand feel values (HF) can be calculated from these parameters using mathematical models.

    A fundamentally improved capability of determining the sample's springback behavior has been added to the new device. Furthermore, the new TSA offers the possibility to measure two additional parameters: thermal haptics (surface thermal conductivity) and thermal insulation. A camera can take a high-resolution image of the clamped sample in order to give the user a visual impression of the material and to carry out further analyses.

    All of this data is automatically digitized and can be processed and stored according to customer-specific requirements through a cloud-based haptic database, the Virtual Haptic Library (developed in cooperation with Black Swan Textiles, USA), making it available to authorized persons worldwide in real-time (quality assurance and control). Additionally, this Virtual Haptic Library enables a search for suitable fabrics worldwide, cataloged according to haptic properties.

The new emtec TSA Tactile Sensation Analyzer not only features a high-quality design, but also convinces with extended possibilities for determining haptic comfort. Additionally, the device captures a high-resolution picture of the sample and can be connected to a Virtual Haptic database (cloud-based). The TSA measuring instrument and measuring method are internationally patented and protected.

    • Eigenschaft: tissue
  • Vorteile:
    • Vorteil: objective measurement of the softness, roughness and stiffness (results for each parameter individually available)
    • Vorteil: measurement of the compressibility, crumplability and burst resistance with special modules possible
    • Vorteil: calculation of a so-called hand feel (HF) value by different mathematical models
    • Vorteil: very good correlation with the human tactile sensation
    • Vorteil: accurate and reliable
    • Vorteil: easy handling
    • Vorteil: transportable
  • Produktbeschreibung:

    Softness, roughness and stiffness are the three basic haptic parameters, which determine the human hand feel. But, in comparison to the human hand, the device provides these three parameters as individual values. By the help of special algorithms, these three single parameters can be combined to so-called hand feel (HF) values. With the right mathematical model, a correlation to the human expectation of up to almost 100 percent is possible.

    The emtec TSA Tissue Softness Analyzer is already subject of a released TAPPI Technical Information Paper (TIP). The critically peer-reviewed technical specification document investigates the specialized measuring instrument that is able to simulate the sensory properties of the human hand when touching tissue paper products. TAPPI TIP 0808-07, titled “Objective Determination of the Haptic Properties of Tissue Products, Technical Information Paper TIP 0808-07 (2021)” covers the theoretical background of haptics, how the TSA device measures the three basic parameters for determining haptic feel, and discusses application possibilities for the paper manufacturing process and quality assurance.

Traditionally, the hand feel of a tissue product  has  been tested by the human hand, in the best case by human hand panels. The human feeling depends on several factors, e.g. personal and market specific preferences, the daily mood and the culture. A further disadvantage is the inability to feel the three basic haptic parameters, which determine the overall haptic impression of a material that is touched by the hand.  The emtec TSA Tissue Softness Analyzer objectively measures the micro-surface variations (feeling of softness), the macro-surface variations (feeling of roughness) and the in-plane...
