Radially sawn timber - the Primwood Method for improved properties
2005 (English)In: European Journal of Wood and Wood Products, ISSN 0018-3768, E-ISSN 1436-736X, Vol. 63, no 2, p. 94-101Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

A new manufacturing system, the PrimWood Method, has been proposed to improve the utilization of wood. A basic concept within this method is the sawing pattern called star-sawing, which produces timber with both rectangular and triangular cross sections. This method facilitates an efficient production of radially sawn timber with vertical annual rings, without juvenile wood. The sawn timber produced in the PrimWood Method is used to produce high quality, knot-free solid wood panels with vertical annual rings. In this process, part of the timber is finger-jointed to form knot-free lengths which are glued together into a block. This block can then be divided according to thickness into thinner panels with vertical annual rings. The PrimWood Method has been tested in an industrial plant. The manufacturing system was designed for a sawing capacity of about 30,000 m3 logs, which corresponds to 16,800 m 3 of star-sawn timber per shift per annum. The production of solid wood panel was then designed to give a volume of 5,800 m3 per annum.
