The device gives reliable and objective information about the 3 basic parameters which determine the human feeling: the softness, roughness and stiffness of textiles and nonwovens. From these 3 parameters, an overall hand feel value can be calculated.
Included into the softness measurement is the measurement of the viscoelastic, elastic and plastic properties. With an extra module, the compressibility can be measured.
The individual parameters can be used for quality assurance or to optimize the production and converting process as well as the product itself
