RecurDyn/MTT2D (Media Transport Toolkit 2D) helps you efficiently create and simulate a sophisticated model of flexible media being transported by a mechanical system in a 2D environment. The analysis speed is very fast when 2D analysis, and it is effective enough for models whose 3D behavior is not considered important. This toolkit can be used for analysis of copiers, printers, ATMs, etc. that handle media such as paper and film. It is widely used by many global companies related to printing equipments.



  • Automated modeling functions for Sheet, Roller and Guide


  • Fast and accurate solver specialized for 2D media transportation system
  • Modeling of the folding sheet with initial curl:
    • Sheet generation from a curve geometry
  • Automatic contact definition among Sheet, Roller and Guide
  • Friction characteristics
  • Various sensors (Distance, Speed, Event (On/Off))
  • Air resistance force and static electricity can be modeled using Nodal force
  • Automatic generation of the guides from CAD geometry (STEP, IGES)
  • Special parametric values provide access to important design parameters
  • Automatic generation of relevant outputs for a sheet feeding system
  • Guide Velocity and Soft-Nip model

Easy MTT2D Generation Using RecurDyn/MTT2D

RecurDyn MTT2D-Creation


  • Simulate the 2D movement of a sheet through a media path easily
  • Applications include devices such as a printer, copier, fax, or other sheet and film feeding products
  • Analyze the behavior of the flexible media with the large deformation
  • Analyze the cause of the malfunctions such as jamming
  • Use various sets of the basic properties of the media
    • Basis weight (or mass), size, bending property, etc.
  • Predict the dynamic torque applied to the system
  • Evaluation of the different characteristics of the sheet due to temperature and humidity extremes
    • Frictional properties (Sheet-Sheet, Sheet-Roller, Sheet-Guide)
    • Electrical properties (Nodal force can be used)
  • Various operating conditions of the complex system can be evaluated 
    • Different rotating speeds of the driving rollers and the driven rollers
    • Roller control with timing diagram (On/Off, acceleration/deceleration)
