OpTiBlend will be launched at Exfor 2010. This software option estimates the mass ratio of pulp species in an unknown blend, of up to 5 different components, with an accuracy better than 1%. It can only be used with data files from the HiRes FQA [serial numbers starting with LDA02]. Older Classic FQA models [serial numbers starting with LDA96] may be upgraded to the HiRes FQA model.

The OpTiSurf measures the surface roughness size and intensity on tissue papers, nonwovens and soft compressible sheets. Tissue paper applications were presented at several technical conferences in 2009.

OpTiPro (Optical Pattern Recognition) software quantifies the intensity, size and orientation of patterns in paper. The OpTiPro uses images from the Paper PerFect Formation Analyzer or the Paprican Micro-Scanner.

Contact OpTest for more information.
