Abstract

The model for the analysis of vibrations of paper in a printing device is presented. It is assumed that paper performs transverse vibrations as a membrane having stiffness due to static tension in its plane. The first eigenmodes are determined. It is shown that the eigenfrequencies of transverse vibrations of the analyzed paper can be controlled by the static tension in the plane of the paper. The model for the analysis of stability of paper in a printing device is presented. It is assumed that paper moves with constant velocity in a given direction. The analysis is performed using a plate-bending element with the contribution of the forces of inertia from the convective accelerations. This results in the eigenproblem determining the critical velocities and stability eigenmodes. The stand was made for obtaining the experimental investigations. Using it the nodal lines of the standing waves were determined and using projection moiré the eigenmodes were determined. The obtained results are used in the process of design of the elements of the printing device.
