What distinguishes the new SchmidtHammer?

Advantages & Features of the Proceq PaperSchmidt PS8000

The Paper Schmidt is the first rebound hammer that is used specifically to test the winding hardness of film and paper rolls. A new measuring principle and an extremely flexible firing pin enable previously unachieved accuracy and repeatability when determining the roll profile. The robust design of the Paper Schmidt ensures a longer service life of the device under the difficult operating conditions in the paper industry.
Special functions such as predefined tolerances simplify the interpretation of the measurement results significantly.


  • The device has an extremely flexible firing pin and works according to a revolutionary measuring principle that is independent of the angle of impact. This makes the Paper Schmidt the leading device in its class when it comes to testing roll profiles.
  • The paper roll profile is immediately shown on the integrated display.
  • The user interface is extremely intuitive and at the same time language-independent.
  • The device automatically calculates the average hardness of the paper roll, the span and the standard deviation.
  • In addition, maximum and minimum values ​​can be set in PaperSchmidt. Exceeding or falling below these preset values ​​is displayed immediately.
  • The PaperSchmidt is characterized by a high-quality, robust design. A sealing system and specially treated firing pins increase the life of the device significantly compared to other rebound hammers. At the same time, this reduces maintenance costs in industries where the device is used intensively.
  • The device is easy to program for individual user requirements.
