DEVELOPMENT OF A MEASURING AND CONTROL UNIT FOR AN INTELLIGENT ADJUSTMENT OF PROCESS PARAMETERS IN SAWING

Abstract

Sawing frozen wood differs significantly from sawing unfrozen wood. Temperatures below zero degrees result in an increasing hardness of wood, rising cutting forces and a progression of tool wear. Currently, the adaption of process parameters due to different wood temperatures is based on operator experience, leading to overloaded saw blades, hence causing considerable economic damage by increasing production downtime. This paper presents the development of a measuring and control unit featuring an integrated database of processing values enabling operators to use most suitable process parameters, thus extending the service life of circular saw blades and increasing the performance of sawmills.
