The paper industry is a highly automated industry that includes many different production steps, in which a variety of machine components are used. In a paper machine, where the pulp is being transformed into paper, rotating components such as bearing-mounted rollers play an important part in driving the wire with the pulp through the process. In this type of industry with a serial layout, the failure of a single roller or bearing could lead to the stoppage of several production steps, with costly consequences as a result. To ensure and optimise asset availability, a condition-based maintenance (CBM) strategy could be implemented. However, CBM is dependent on an appropriate condition monitoring (CM) technique to detect a physical phenomenon that defines the state of critical components or systems. For the development of CM techniques, it is therefore important to understand and model the physical behaviour of the system in question. In this paper, the behaviour of a roller in a paper machine is analysed using the finite element method (FEM). The physical model was compared with vibration measurements collected from an online monitoring system and an experimental modal analysis.
