Use of Almond Shell Powder in Modification of the Physical and Mechanical Properties of Medium Density Fiberboard
This study evaluated the effects of almond shell powder content as an extender, as well as the effects of varying paraffin contents, temperature, and press time on the properties of medium-densityExpand
Evaluating the machining characteristics of oil palm lumber.
A series of machining experiments were carried out using a CNC multi-function machine, to evaluate the sawing, routing and boring as well as the tool wearing properties of the oil palm lumber. TheExpand
The effect of machine parameters on the surface quality in planing of rubberwood.
Some machining defects such as fuzzy grain, torn grain and chip marks often occur in Rubberwood lumbers in the planning process, and it decreases the machining yield. To understand and optimizeExpand
Tool wear characteristics of oil palm empty fruit bunch (OPEFB) particleboard
Abstract A series of machining experiments on the oil-palm empty fruit bunch (OPEFB) particleboard were carried out using a CNC router, to evaluate the tool wearing properties of the composite inExpand
Dust-emission from abrasive sanding processes in the Malaysian wooden furniture industry
A series of sanding experiments were carried out in a large dust tunnel, using an orbital sander with an aluminum oxide abrasive of 150 grit size, on twelve different hardwood species. DustExpand
Thin particleboard quality: effect of particle size on the properties of the panel
Particle size and press time are always two effective factors in the manufacturing of particleboard. In this work we have investigated the effect of these factors on thin particleboard. ExperimentalExpand
Characterization Of Machining Defects In Wood Planing Operation
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of some machining factors on the machinability of selected Malaysian hardwoods and to quantify the major types of machining defects in theExpand
Characterizing Surface Defects of Solid Wood of Dark Red Meranti (Shorea sp.), Melunak (Pentace sp.) and Rubberwood (Hevea brasiliensis) in Planing Process
The machining parameters affect surface quality and usually, wood planing process is heavily influenced by external parameters. External parameters concern mainly the machining process parametersExpand
