    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    The paper presents an approach of evaluating the moulding process for production of paper bottlesusing Computed Tomography (CT). Moulded Pulp Products (MPP) are made of a formed, dewateredand dried mixture of pulp fibers and water. Modern industrial pulp moulding is datedback to the year 1903 when a patent for MPP production was acquired by Martin L. Keyes1. Withan increasing demand for environmental friendly products, researchers are now focusing on investigatingadvance manufacturing process for production of MPP2.
