Abstract [en]

Rip-sawing following the curvature of a crooked log means advantages for yield. However, the possibility to saw in a narrow curve with a circular saw blade is limited because of the inherent flat geometry of circular sawblades. For a double arbour circular saw the situation is even more problematic because the two blades have a certain overlap and thus the two arbours are not positioned in the same horizontal position. In this study a theoretical geometrical study of the creation of a kerf with a single circular sawblade and with a double arbour circular saw with two sawblades is viewed upon. Input parameters in the study for the double arbour saw are blade diameter, overlap, margin between blades, cant height, curve centre horizontal position and curve radius. Output is the geometry of the kerf that is cut by the teeth. Theoretical results for stiff saw blades show that the kerfs become in general curved and inclined (tilted) in the vertical direction and also that the width of the kerfs for double arbour saws become wider at the top and bottom of the cant than in the middle. Sawing takes place not only in the front part of the blades but also on the back of the blades (back sawing). Parts of the cutting edges of the teeth are cutting when back sawing and not the whole of the width of the teeth. A result is that boards that are cut out of the cant get varying thickness along their width because of the varying kerf width. A comparison with experimental thickness data from four test sawings at a sawmill indicates that the theoretical results are valid and that curve sawn boards become thinner than straight sawn boards.
