Bulletin
J.N. Smithies
1991
The dimensional accuracy with which timber is sawn is important both for its marketability and for its economic production. This Bulletin describes quality control techniques that can be used for sampling and measuring sawn timber taken from the production line in softwood sawmills. The dimensions obtained from the measuring process can be used to quantify and analyse the accuracy with which timber is being produced in the sawmill. The results obtained from the analysis of the measurements can then be used to give pointers as to which part of the production line should be examined to improve or optimise the sawing accuracy.
