Technidyne PROFILE/Plus® Grammage

The PROFILE/Plus® Grammage follows the gravimetric method of paper grammage testing in accordance with industry standards including TAPPI T410 and ISO 536. 


Brought to you by Technidyne, our specialist optical, surface, and physical property testing brand, the PROFILE/Plus® Grammage gives you automated grammage measurement of paper and board.  

Basis weight, substance and ream weight are all terms the paper industry has used in the past to define the mass per unit area of paper and board products. Today the most commonly used term is ‘Grammage’ and is most often expressed as grams/meter². 

A complete grammage profile provides key information about the operation of the paper machine. It gives you better, more stable production. And it allows you to more easily verify and calibrate on-line sensors, saving time and money. 

The Technidyne PROFILE/Plus® Grammage has an isolated measurement chamber. It has automatic coupon removal and detailed profiling capability. It gives you fast and accurate results. Plus the Profile Plus includes a paper feed for automated profile testing. 

Precision engineered paper grammage testing

The PROFILE/Plus® Grammage uses a specially designed and engineered punch and die assembly to accurately collect each sample. Once the sample is prepared it’s transferred to a weighing scale to determine its precise weight. Then the proper conversion factors are applied to determine the sample’s grammage. 

High-precision sample scale

The PROFILE/Plus® Grammage has the latest in paper grammage weighing technology. It gives you accurate and reliable data for fast and repeatable results. 

Automatic sample removal

The PROFILE/Plus® Grammage removes the sample from the weighing scale after each measurement. This allows the scale to always operate to its highest accuracy.  

The external sample catcher makes disposal of cut specimens easier and more efficient. 

Automatic zero point

The Profile Plus features an automatic zero point. This resets the scale after each test to increase precision and improve repeatability. 

Isolated measurement chamber

The PROFILE/Plus® Grammage has a weighing chamber that is isolated from outside influences. This ensures proper measurement conditions, unaffected by air currents and factors that could disrupt the process. 

User defined paper grammage testing 

 The PROFILE/Plus® Grammage lets you develop product specific testing profiles. Each profile can be customized for specific grades, machines, or customer needs. They’re stored for fast and easy retrieval. 

Quality paper grammage testing – as standard!

The PROFILE/Plus® Grammage meets or exceeds the requirements of many international standards, including:

The Industrial Physics testing portfolio

In today’s world of strict standards and high demands, the data needed to assess whether a product meets customer specifications is essential. You can count on our industry-leading Profile Plus machines when the strength and appearance of your paper products is important. 

We make a wide range of paper testing devices and accessories. Have a look at the ACA PERMI POROSITY, it’s the best tool to balance your process stability and product quality. 

Then there’s the Emtec DFA – Dynamic Filtration Analyzer which  quickly determines the influence of chemicals on the filtration characteristics of fiber suspensions by an automatic analysis of drainage and retention. 

Knowledgebase information station

We like to share the lessons we’ve learnt over many decades of making paper testing machines and devices.  

Perhaps you’d like to read a couple of blogs we’ve published? First up, there’s this blog on how to optimize your paper testing lab process step-by-step. Alternatively, this whitepaper paper outlines different types of sample preparation for paper testing.
