"At BLC we believe that leather making is the applications of science and process control. We believe that an essential element of producing consistent leather is understanding key metrics. To this end we have worked closely with MSA Engineering Systems Limited in the design and development of their ST300 Softness Testers and SG300 Substance Gauges. Recently MSA has made two significant developments in their leather measurement equipment. This is the launch of the only calibratable substance gauge and the addition of real time measurement on their digital softness gauge. This development enables softness readings to be sent directly to a PC for in-line statistical process control, ideal for tanners in the automotive and footwear sectors that need consistency."
