Structural Analysis of a Teat Cup Liner
This study attempts to analyze the structure of the thin-walled part in the teat cup liner for FEM by the finite-element method (FEM) and to determine the most suitable structure for it. For the first step, we prepared a specimen liner made from NBR (Acrylonitrile-Butadiene Rubber) and silicon rubber (made by ORION MACHINERY CO., LTD.) and conducted tensile and compression tests for mechanical scraping properties of rubber Data. We then analyzed the thin-walled part using SolidWorks Simulation (SolidWorks Corporation) for finite-element analysis in liner process from expression of milk into nipple massage.
