Researching the Influence of Carton Stiffness on the Hopper Design of Packaging Machine


Article Preview

Through studying carton stiffness, the hopper design of packaging machine is improved. By using the elastic-plastic theory and finite element stress analysis method, the hopper baffle design of automatic tea packaging machine is optimized in order to reduce the requirements of equipment for paper, solve the problem that automatic packaging machine stop work. At the same time, the stress analysis of carton is taken through the ANSYS to derive that the suction of sucker satisfy the requirements of carton stiffness or not, the carton appear plastic deformation in the force process or not.
