Outdoor enthusiasts are always on the lookout for high-performance, durable recreational clothing that
goes the extra mile in terms of comfort. When designing a garment’s tactile properties, it pays for
manufacturers to have objective data on hand. Quality markers of com-fort, such as softness,

At the Outdoor Retailer Summer Show, German manufacturer emtec Electronic will showcase the tried-
and-true TSA Tactile Sensation Analyzer, that already offers a unique approach to softness
measurement by simulating the sensory capacities of the human hand via sound and deformation

fraction of the time needed for traditional hand-panel testing methods – a mere 90 seconds is
Originating in the tissue paper industry under the name Tissue Softness Analyzer, the TSA has since
become an established industry standard for haptic measurement worldwide. Its measur-ing principles
and practical application have been featured in a Technical Information Paper (TIP 0808-07 (2021))
from the Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry (TAPPI).
Adapted to the needs and wishes of the textile industry, the new device not only features a high-
quality design, but also extending additional measurement functions leading to a more advanced
understanding of material properties. Additionally, a new method for digitization of-fers a lot of
advantages for all users.
Attendees of the Outdoor Retailer Summer Show are encouraged to stop by the emtec booth to get
more details about the functionalities and application possibilities of the proven TSA and the new
device talking with Alexander Gruener (Business Development Manager, emtec) and Rodger
