- Characterisation of surface finishing processes for wood manufacture
- Hendarto, Benny; Shayan, Ebrahim; Ozarska, Barbara
- This paper presents a research project that is currently underway at the Industrial Research Institute Swinburne (IRIS), with funding provided by the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Wood Innovation. This project commenced in June 2002 and is expected to be completed by June 2004. The objective of this research is to investigate the finishing processes and procedures related to wooden components in furniture manufacturing. This would involve the specification of the configuration of the major factors affecting the components finished surface quality. In particular the research will investigate the best process parameters in the sanding operation and develop procedures to achieve the highest quality of surface finish. It is envisaged that the research will lead to a systematic characterisation of the surface qualities for different wood species. The aim of this project is to minimise the requirements for sanding after wood machining operations.
