Texture Analyser TMS Touch


The Food Texture Analyser model TMS touch is an affordable, stand-alone system.

Designed specifically for quick and easy food texture testing.

Texture measurements normally reserved for the laboratory, can now be brought to the factory floor to instantly determine consistent standards within raw and finished product, saving time, resources and money.

Controlled by an easy-to-use LCD touch screen and TL-Touch software, the TMS-Touch requires minimal operator training and doesn't require a computer for testing.

Tests are performed at the push of a button and regularly used tests can be saved as 'Favourites' for instant test recall and set-up, plus there is password protection to safeguard data and test set-ups.

Dr Mawele Shamaila, Nestle USA

“Nestle purchased a texture system in 2006. Since then I have recommended the texture system to several vendors in North and Central America. Staff were able to develop a simple training manual and procedure for the texture system allowing easy training in short period of time.  Since we bought the equipment we have had no problems and feel very secure knowing that we can count on their support and service.”
