emco IAS Press Marks Tester
The emco IAS Press Marks Tester is the industry standard for detection and control of the embossing of cigarette papers.
The optical appearance and functionality of cigarette papers are changed by linear embossing, which is known as Press Marks. The parameters are determinated by the Press Marks Tester with the original algorithms of Dr. Hermann Praast (Darmstadt).
The Press Marks Tester is the industry standard for detecting and controlling the embossing of cigarette papers.

The emco IAS Cocklingtester is used to determine local tensions (bubble content) and global tensions (waviness), which are permanently visible after wetting.
The emco IAS Scarredness Tester is used to determine and evaluate recessed areas in the paper which, as a result of the paper technology, influence the optical impression of the paper surface.
The emco IAS Mottling Tester determines the optical inhomogeneity of printed and unprinted papers on an area of 30 mm x 30 mm. Mottling is the printing unevenness in solid tone areas.
The emco IAS Calender Blackening Tester is used to characterise the negative optical impression of SC papers caused by the supercalender.
The emco IAS Missing Dots Tester was designed to determine imperfections in halftone prints.
