TSA - Tissue Softness Analyzer

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 stiffness of any kind of tissue paper (base material and finished products). 


Benefits

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

Product description

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.
