The name Value activation refers to the basic understanding of wood, where at present there are properties that are not fully exploited, but with help of a new sawing pattern could be fully utilized. The basic idea lies at an industrial level producing radial sawn timber with good profitability and with lesser and mostly a controllable moisture movement. In short it implies an activation of values of timber that has not been exploited in ordinary industrial production to date.
This paper gives one example how the basic ideas in the concept of Value activation can be implemented in the industry. A new manufacturing system, the PrimWood Method, producing radial sawn timber, well adjusted to the conditions of the Swedish hardwood sawmill industry is presented. The manufacturing system generates knot and defect-free hardwood products with vertical annual rings.
Utilizing the proposed manufacturing system in the Swedish hardwood sawmill industry imply an increased focus on hardwood in consumer products, which gain both forestry, sawmill industry and the wood manufacturing industry.
