Abstract. The measurements of vibrations of rollers and their segments in transverse direction to the axis of rotation of folding device were carried out in this work. The displacements of rollers and of their segments originating during the process of rotation in transverse direction to the axis of rotation were determined. Based on experimental results plane strain problem was investigated. Also bending vibrations of the rotating element in a folding machine were investigated. Supplementary stiffness from the static loading caused by centrifugal forces was taken into account. Eigenmodes were calculated. Comparison of experimental and numerical investigations is performed.
Keywords: folding, roller, rotating element, plane strain problem, centrifugal forces, vibrations, eigenmodes, plate bending problem, measurement of displacements, renewal of the roller.
