Applying an understanding of the material thickness properties of paperboard to a multibody dynamics analysis makes it is possible to simplify the machine construction and prototype phase of a paperboard forming press. The method involves integrating an empirical multi-dynamics simulation model using commercially available software to save time in design. This work concentrates on effect of thickness in pressing force of 4 different SBS-coated paperboards. Required pressing force is measured utilizing a linear servo driven press and the data is plotted into into Matlab as polynomial surface function and is then utilized in multi-dynamics program Adams by Simulink-interface. The obtained results are then compared with actual experimental data from prototype crank-rod operated press construction. The presented semi-empirical practical method with light computation time can be utilized for various fibre materials and pressing techniques to streamline the overall design phase.
