emtec Electronic presents one-stop-shop for measuring textile haptics, thermics, and optics at AATCC Summit


One of the leading innovators for specialized testing and measuring equipment presents its latest invention at the AATCC Textile Discovery Summit 2023 from September 12-14 in Greenville, South Carolina.

Leipzig, Germany, 21.08.2023 – Don’t let the small size fool you – the TSA Tactile Sensation Analyzer from emtec Electronic packs a punch when it comes to convenience. Weighing in at approximately 30 pounds, this easily portable haptic testing device has been recently redesigned to include extended measurement capabilities and a virtual online database to easily digitize, compare, and subsequently reproduce fabric samples from anywhere in the world.

“We expect the TSA to satisfy the industry’s need for accurate and reliable data on the parameters governing a fabric’s comfort factor and to integrate these parameters onto a digital platform,” explains emtec Founder and General Manager Giselher Gruener.

Extended measurement capabilities and digitization service bundled into one device 

Much like its predecessor, the new TSA Tactile Sensation Analyzer allows manufacturers to objectively measure the softness, smoothness, flexibility and deformation/recovery of samples. These subjective traits determine the way a material feels to the touch. The TSA then calculates specific hand-feel values based on the target market, and enables a reliable comparison of fabric samples.

The redesigned TSA includes the ability to measure thermohaptics, shedding light on how warm or cool a fabric feels to the touch. In addition, a high-resolution camera captures an image of the sample, showing in detail the fabric structure, weave, as well as any visual embellishments. This allows for easy digitization and reproduction of optical properties.

Analyze, digitize, categorize: Store sample data in an online database for easy sourcing 

Significantly, the TSA now features a cloud-based Virtual Haptic Library that allows for automatic digitization and categorization of all sample data. The license-based database digitizes, processes, and categories sample data according to specific haptic and optical traits. Developed in cooperation with Black Swan Textiles, the Virtual Haptic Library can be accessed in real-time by authorized personnel from anywhere in the world, enabling efficient quality assurance and control regardless of location. The Library can also be used as an online marketplace, making it easier for textile professionals to find, compare, and reproduce samples with certain haptic requirements.

The TSA Tactile Sensation Analyzer will be available to order in 2024.

www.textilesresources.com is not just a blog, but it is my passion towards textile/apparel/fashion industry. After having studied at NIFT (National Institute of Fashion Technology) at Gandhinagar campus, and associated with NDBI (National Design Business Incubation) at NID (National Institute of Design) Ahmedabad campus, I started my long journey into this field. Since 2006, I had worked for various corporates either into B2B, B2C, SaaS or AI base products/concept/services related to mostly textiles/apparel/fashion industry, and having main responsibilities are sales/revenue generator and bd. During July2023, a thought came in my mind to launch a knowledge-based website, you can also call it a blogging site, wherein users can read latest news and happenings and articles about global textiles/apparel/fashion and stay abreast. At the moment, this site is having mainly two features: News and Articles, going forward I shall also add Interviews (text/audio/video) Trade Fair calendar (this calendar is being updated as per the organizers schedule, however I request to crosscheck with organizer before any decision) , therefore, I have launched this venture in July2023, and thanks to the visitors, the site is growing every day. We have recently launched a new feature as Business Directory wherein the suppliers/manufacturers can create their profile and upload products for better exposure.
