Product Updates


OpTiBlend 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 is only used with data files from the HiRes FQA [serial nunbers starting with LDA02].

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.

New HiRes FQA Applications:

  • Tissue Paper: A new publication is available that discusses the relationship between fiber curl and important tissue properties such as strength, bulk and softness.

  • Plastic Composites: The use of cellulose fibres in plastic composites is steadily increasing. The impact of fiber dimensions on composite properties is the subject of a new short presentation.
