Abstract [en]

Wood industry continues to strive to reduce production cost and increase productivity to maintain competiveness. Hence, knowledge of the effect of wood cutting parameters on power consumption would enable increase energy efficiency, thus, reduce operating costs and enhance profitability. Also measurement of power consumption gives knowledge of other specifics such as: tool edge wear, occurrence of catastrophic failures and other parameters which affect the quality of the sawn boards and the momentary efficiency of the break-down process. In this study, power consumption during sawing of Pinus sylvestris L. using double arbour circular saw was investigated. Both climb-sawing and counter-sawing were considered. The experiments were carried out, under normal production, in two Swedish sawmills. The relationship between cutting parameters and calculated power consumption is discussed. The experimental power consumption increased 11-35% during an 8 hour shift mainly due to increase of the tooth radius. Further, this study also showed the climb-sawing had higher power consumption than counter-sawing.
