  • Substitution of the subjective quality assessment by an objective measuring method
Features:  
tsa.jpg The softness is a fundamental quality parameter of tissue and fabrics. It may be characterized by e.g. smoothness, compressibility, stiffness and “crumpleability“.
There are other instruments on the market which are measuring all those single parameters. The results may be linked by complex functions and summarized to one value, which characterizes the subjectively felt softness in a more or less reliable way. However, previous method of evaluating softness is very expensive and not suitable for quality assurance.
The new Tissue Softness Analyzer TSA simultaneously gathers all single relevant parameters which have an influence on the tissue softness. Additionally it is possible to measure the elasticity, compressibility and ball burst strength. Parameters for that values will be automatically calculated by a high-performance PC software.
The correlation of the measuring results to the subjective assessment is excellent.
