Modelling and numerical analysis of the thread rolling process used in food mechanical engineering. K. Kukielka, L. KukielkaThe article describes the problem of modelling and numerical analysis of the external thread roll-ing process which can be used in the food mechanical engineering. Modern modelling method and nu-merical analysis of the process with computational model of the stress, displacement, strain in the thread was shown. Exemplary results of numerical simulation of strain for different conditions of the external round and metric threads rolling process are presented. Obtained results enhance the design and develop-ment proper construction of the tool to provide technical requirements and property of the screw, simultaneously increase the tool life, quality of product and process productivity.
