Proceq RQ8000 Paper Roll Quality Tester

The RQ8000 Roll Quality Tester is designed for fast and accurate measurement of paper roll and machine roll hardness profile.
This hand-held measurement device includes hardness measuring unit and distance encoder. Paper reels with non-uniform hardness profile may cause problems when printed or converted.
RQ8000 is the fastest and the most accurate system to detect reels that need to be excluded in printing or converting processes.


30 impacts per second monitored 100’000 times ensure ultra high measurement accuracy , enabling live detection of the smallest roll defects and even profile control.

Versatile, suitable for various types of materials from standard paper up to thin composite rolls films.
