Abstract

This paper deals with the investigation of improved methods for considering machine-material interaction during the design and production of packaging machinery. Minimum energy principles are used to create a theoretical model of the response of the packaging material during processing. The complex non-linear properties of the packaging material are encapsulated in parametric models generated through analysis of the physical measurement of the changing properties during processing. These two techniques are incorporated into a software model that represents the behaviour of a skillet during the erection process. This software model considers the material, the pack design and the machine system. The overall modelling approach is validated by comparison with a physical system, which shows a good correlation with the theoretical model.
