Barking

 

the stripping of bark from unprocessed timber. It is done on bark-stripping machines by means of cutting blades (machines with cutter heads), friction between pieces of the raw material (barking drums), a stream of liquid under pressure (hydraulic barking unit), or a stream of compressed air with sawdust (pneumatic barking unit). Barking improves the quality of the stock for subsequent processing of the lumber and increases the productivity of wood-processing equipment.
