RecurDyn MTT2D (Media Transport Toolkit 2D) helps the user efficiently create and simulate a sophisticated model of flexible media being transported by a mechanical system in a 2D environment. RecurDyn MTT2D automates the entire process for kinematic and dynamic analysis including contact problems caused by components of 2D flexible media systems. Also, RecurDyn MTT2D performs fast calculation optimizing the analysis process and analysis method of the solver.

  • Providing Sheet, Roller (fixed/Movable/Pair), Guide (Linear/Arc/Circular) shapes
  • Automatic definition of contact among the Sheets, the Rollers, and Guides along the media path.
    2D contact)
  • Automatic definition of contact between Rollers and Rollers(2D contact)
  • Automatic definition of contact between Sheets and Sheets(2D contact)mtt2d_-1.jpg
  • 2D flexible media transport system solver (Fast solver using specialized and optimized solver)
  • Guide velocity function, Soft-Nip model, Linear characteristics of frictional forces
  • Creating the curled and folded sheet in the initial state
  • Supporting Distance, Speed, Event (ON/OFF) Sensors
  • Definition of air resistance, absorption forces, and electrostatic forces by nodal forces
  • Automatic creation of Guides from 2D CAD data (STEP, IGES)

You can easily simulate the 2D movement of a sheet through a media path.
Applications include devices such as a printer, copier, fax, or other sheet and film feeding products.
RecurDyn/MTT2D automates the definition of a sheet (whether paper, film or any other flat media) as well as idealized rollers and guides.
World-class capability to analyze flexible sheets that undergo large deformations with linear material properties, including contact with guides & rollers

You can evaluate the potential for jamming given

  • different sheet size, weight and stiffness
  • different sheet properties due to temperature and humidity extremes
  • different sheet velocity due to misalignment of drive-driven roller sets
  • different roller velocities due to gap, wear, etc.


  • Fast & easy modeling
  • Speed & stability of the simulation process
  • Contacts are automatically defined
  • Predefined groups of model entities simplify the model generation process
  • Special parametric values provide access to important design parameters
  • Automatic generation of relevant outputs for a sheet feeding system
  • Ability to define multiple sheets with the same contact properties that move along several paths
  • Modeling of a folding sheet with curl radius
