Emtec will provide live demonstrations of its TSA Tactile Sensation Analyzer at the 2021 Techtextil North America in Raleigh, NC/USA, from August 23-25, 2021. The TSA provides an objective measurement of haptic characteristics of a fabric.
The measurement of softness, roughness and stiffness and the calculation of the hand feel value are done quickly and reliably. The device can be used very well in research and development, quality assurance, and product optimization. Using a sound spectrum analysis and tiny, rotating paddles, the TSA simulates the corpuscles of the human hand that are responsible for haptic sensation, such as detecting softness, smoothness, and stiffness.
At the event, representatives from emtec Electronic GmbH, Leipzig/Germany, will give demonstrations on the TSA and answer questions about the device. They will demonstrate how the unique design of the equipment enables it to differentiate between 3 different parameters and arrive at a numeric value for a sample’s hand-feel based on softness, smoothness, and stiffness. In addition, the exhibit will illustrate current applications for use in production, including R&D, process and product optimization, quality assurance, troubleshooting, and benchmarking.
