Paper Tissue Towel

Paper Tissues
Tissue paper manufacture forms a significant sector of the paper industry, with products designed for a wide range of applications and customized by embossing, printing and saturating with chemicals.

Typically more fragile than other paper products, tissue paper needs expert monitoring. Some types of surface defects may be more acceptable in certain applications, so an intelligent classification system may be required.

Soft tissue paper can be produced with a variety of textures and thicknesses, but is primarily used for toilet tissue, facial tissues, paper towels and napkins. It is also commonly utilized for packaging.

AMETEK Surface Vision systems have been successfully inspecting paper surfaces across the globe for more than two decades, with more than a billion square meters of paper monitored every day. Our solutions are trusted by manufacturers to detect, identify and visualize paper defects across a range of processes.
  • Applications +

    • Paper Coater

      Paper can be coated to introduce or enhance properties such as surface gloss, ink absorbency and water resistance. High-precision monitoring can ensure uniform coating across a smooth surface.
