Types of Textile Softness Testers

Author:QINSUN Released in:2023-10 Click:96

Softness testing is a clear indicator for many materials, such as household toilet paper, sanitary napkins, baby diapers and other products that have higher softness requirements. Some textiles also have certain softness requirements. This article focuses on What are the currently commonly used softness testers?

1. Textile hand tester
Textile hand tester:
Textile hand tester is a multi-functional measuring device which can measure softness, softness/roughness, stiffness. Elasticity is calculated as the feel, as well as the compressibility of the fabric and fibers and the resistance to bursting of the ball.
Scope of use:
Process optimization, product control, product optimization, comparison/product/* management, research and development, material selection/pulp/fiber incoming material control
Basic paper, toilet paper, fiber, textile, tissue, non-woven, kitchen paper, leather, kitchen paper
Main industries:
Fabric manufacturing and fiber, chemical supply, paper towel and fiber processing, machinery manufacturing
Replace subjective quality assessment with an objective measurement method
The Softness is the basic quality parameter of fabrics and fibers. Softness, compressibility and stiffness can also be used as well as wrinkle resistance.
There are other devices on the market that measure all individual parameters and combine the results with complex functions to ultimately obtain a value that provides a more or less reliable way to subjectively experience softness. However, previous softness evaluation methods are very expensive and not suitablenot quality assurance.
The new Textile Material Softness Analyzer simultaneously gathers all relevant parameters that impact the softness of tissue paper. In addition, it is also possible to measure softness/roughness, stiffness, elasticity as well as calculate hand feel, as well as compression. The burst rate and force of the ball can be automatically measured using high-performance computer software. . Compared to a subjective assessment, this test result is completely ideal.

2. Fabric Touch Tester
Scope of application:
Objectively evaluate the hand (touch) performance of materials by testing their softness value, suitable for fabrics, textiles, non-wovens, material softness testing flexible sheets such as toilet paper and leather. At the same time, using different accessories, elasticity/viscoelasticity/plasticity, bursting, lCompressibility, weight and thickness of the sample can also be tested.
Principle of the instrument:
The specific working principle of this new softness measurement method is as follows: The main components of the instrument are a rotor, a vibration sensor and some others sensors used to collect additional data and control the instrument. functions. To perform the measurement, the rotor is pressed against the sample and begins to rotate when it reaches its final position. The mutual contact between the rotor and the sample causes the sample to vibrate. The vibration sensor receives these vibration signals and transmits them to the analysis component. The analysis component provides pre-prepared data to the computer. Then the computer goes through complex computing methods that are used to process this data. Using a complex formula, the softness value is calculatedeated by synchronizing other measured parameters with those pre-entered by the customer (a maximum of 68 different parameters can be used).

3. Fabric Stiffness Tester
Flexible properties of fabrics are important physical parameters to allow us to study the stiffness, drape, softness and other properties of fabrics. This instrument uses bending length (two mechanical indicators, also called drape stiffness) and bending stiffness (also called bending stiffness), express \"the ability of the fabric to resist changes in shape during its bending direction\" , collectively known as stiffness. The fabric stiffness tester is suitable for rigid and flexible testing of general materials.
Applicable standards:
GB/T18318.1-2009 \"Textiles - Determination of length bending of fabric\"
ZB W04003-87 \"Test method for fabric stiffness - Inclined cantilever method\" reccommands the use of instruments.

4. Stiffness and flexibility tester
Related standards:
JIS L 1076, JAPAN TAPPI No.34, ASTM D2923-06
This machine is a measuring instrument suitable for the evaluation of stiffness and flexibility (softness) of fibrous products (especially fine fabrics such as silk, cotton and chemical fibers), paper products of various properties such as fabrics and plastic films. This is a measuring device manufactured in accordance with the Japanese industrial standard JIS L 1096 General Textile Testing Method (stiffness and softness: method E).
Place the specimen on a test bench fitted with a fine groove, and measure the resistance (g) which occurs when the specimen is pressed into the groove to a certain depth (8 mm) by the blade of the measuring device. , to evaluate the softness of the test piece.
Different from other softness measurement methods, the characteristice of this measurement method is that when the test piece is pressed into the fine groove, the test piece slides several times on the testing table, so the measured value is the sliding friction force. and pressing time. The composite strength of resistance (softness).
