LEIPZIG, Germany, Aug. 21, 2013 (Press Release) -During the MIAC exhibition (Lucca, Italy) in October, emtec Electronic will arrange a Tissue Workshop together with the Center of Paper Quality Lucense for the first time. On Thursday, October 17, interested persons from the tissue industry (pulp and tissue producers, chemical suppliers as well as tissue converters) are invited to attend this workshop right next to the MIAC exhibition area at Lucense SCpA.

The emtec TSA Tissue Softness Analyzer, which will be introduced during the workshop, is on its way to become an industrial standard worldwide, because it opens completely new and exciting options for process optimization, complaint management, product development and QA. From 09:00 to 11:00 am there will be a presentation about the TSA and the "subjective vs. objective determination of the tissue handfeel". After the presentation it will be enough time to discuss the device in detail, to speak with our experts and to measure any kind of tissue samples.

At the end of the production process, the softness respectively the handfeel of the tissue has to be determined to assure the quality of such products. On the one hand, subjective handfeel panels exist for this task and on the other hand the TSA Tissue Softness Analyzer gives objective and reliable results. These two positions have to be considered but also to be combined, to reach the best results for the tissue quality in terms of softness. Also important to clarify are the terms "softness" and "handfeel". Is it the same? Or is there a difference? Answers and explanations will be given on October 17 during our Tissue Workshop at Lucense SCpA in Lucca.
