Analyze configurations in which bouncing of the cylinders occurs in a flexographic printing press. Bouncing occurs when the cylinders lose contact with each other during the printing, resulting in unsatisfactory printing results.
Use the built-in tools to create custom components for the parts of the printing press.
Plot the vibrations of the plate cylinder and whether it is in contact with the impression cylinder.
0.5 mm bearing play: no bouncing
0.6 mm bearing play: moderate bouncing
0.8 mm bearing play: extreme bouncing
Drag components from the library browser to the modeling area to create the printing press model.
With a bearing play of 0.6 or 0.8 mm, contact between the plate and impression cylinders is lost, and bouncing occurs.
