Volume yield and quality of timber when using Star-sawing technique


Hans Holmberg and Dick Sandberg


Volume yield and quality are investigated when starsawing logs of pine (Pinus silvestris L) and spruce (Picea abies Karst). Topdiameters of timber were for pine sorted in two classes 260-300 rnm and 300-340 mm. Spruce timber were sorted in one class with top diameters between 290 and 340 mm.

The investigation shows a volume yield considerably higher for starsawing compared to conventional techniques. This investigation, carried out on a simple testplant, yields 68 %calculated from top volume of log. Volume yield calculated from a cone with top and root diameters is 56 %. With sideboards included these numbers will incerease with one percent. The triangular profiles is 47 % of the total volume and the rest 53 % are quarter sawn boards.

The volume yield of spruce is about one percent higher than for pine. The difference is assumed to depend on more pronounced taper of the log in spruce, wich allows easier positioning of the log.

Quality is determined with a method developed especially for quarter sawn timber.
