February 2, 2024 (press release) –

emtec Electronic GmbH, a leading manufacturer for specialized measuring and testing devices, is set to showcase innovative solutions at the Tissue World Miami from January 31 to February 02 in Miami Beach, Florida, addressing prevalent challenges in the pulp and paper industry.

As an exhibitor at the Tissue World Miami, emtec Electronic will spotlight its newest products designed to tackle industry-wide issues such as resource waste in the wet-end and the precise determination of advanced haptic parameters. Among the showcased solutions will be the redesigned TSA Tactile Sensation Analyzer, which will be presented alongside other testing solutions at Booth E73.

First time the emtec FPO Fiber Potential Analyzer Online will be on site in Miami. It constantly provides relevant process data to the mill´s control system or a data cloud, accessible from anywhere globally. The FPO works fully automatic, performing sampling, measuring, and cleaning with a very low maintenance effort, and can be installed at various points in the paper machine, and is able to sample from two different points. It measures the fiber surface charge (zeta potential), streaming potential, conductivity, pH value, and temperature. Providing real-time data, it enables the industry to further digitize and automate the papermaking process and path to industry 4.0.

One further innovation provided by emtec is the new designed and revised TSA Tactile Sensation Analyzer, originally known as TSA Tissue Softness Analyzer, established in the meanwhile as industrial standard within the tissue industry. Beside the well-known haptic parameters such as softness, smoothness and flexibility, the new TSA now incorporating additional testing parameters such as friction, drape, surface thermal conductivity and thermal insulation, alongside high-resolution imaging for a visual impression. A noteworthy addition to the redesigned TSA – fitting the topic perfectly – is the introduction of a virtual haptic database, the Virtual Haptic Library, developed in collaboration with Black Swan Textiles. This cloud-based database digitizes, processes, and categorizes sample data according to specific haptic traits and makes the results globally accessible. This not only facilitates real-time global quality assurance but also can serve as an online marketplace.

Visitors to Tissue World Miami are encouraged to visit emtec Electronic at booth E73 and engage with Antonio Trampler (emtec), Alexander Gruener (emtec) and Rodger Segelstrom from North American partner company Industrial Physics / Technidyne to gain further insights, discuss ideas and take a look at the innovative solutions.
