In 1995 the company started with one device and four employees within the paper industry. Its founder and General Manager, Mr. Giselher Gruener developed a new measuring device for liquid penetration PDA Penetration Dynamics Analyzer to predict the gluing, printing and coating behavior of paper and board. Beside other developments the company introduced the first objective softness measuring device in 2006 to the tissue industry.
The emtec TSA Tissue Softness Analyzer is probably the biggest success in emtec’s history. This success story is likely to continue in the textile and nonwovens industry, where manufacturers, chemical suppliers etc. have similar concerns, the haptic properties of a textile or nonwoven product are of utmost importance for consumers. A further milestone was the introduction of the emtec ACA Ash Content Analyzer in 2012, which allows the determination of the total ash content as well as the individual minerals and fillers in paper and board nondestructive within seconds.
The latest innovation for the pulp and paper industry is coming from a close partnership with AFG Analytics GmbH. The improved and new designed CAS touch! Charge Analyzing System and FPA touch! Fiber Potential Analyzer have been introduced in 2016. The two updated and upgraded test devices didn´t change their measuring principle, but with their small size and light weight, it is easy to carry them, the touchscreen enables an easy and intuitive handling and with the PC software deeper analyses of the tested material are possible. In the meanwhile, the company has around 32 employees and offers 13 different devices with several modules in more than 80 countries with a global sales network of 32 independent representatives. All devices of the emtec product range are self-developed and unique on the market.
