The defects investigated were spike marks, conveyer marks, pressure roller stain, drying checks, machine gouge, and machine burn in terms of their occurrence, size, and impact on yield.
The objective of this study was to assess the importance of various manufacturing defects--spike marks, conveyer marks, pressure roller stain, drying checks, machine gouge, and machine burn--that are introduced after trees are felled and during processing into dry lumber.
Mechanical defects included in this analysis were spike marks, conveyer marks, pressure roller stain, drying checks, machine gouge, and machine burn.
Machine gouge (snipe) is a depression across the width of a board due to the machine cutting below the desired line of cut.
On average, for both lumber samples, machine gouge reduced yield by 0.5 percent for the Furniture (Table 5) and by 0.4 percent for the Panel (Table 6) cutting orders.
Manufacturing defects such as machine burn, conveyer marks, and machine gouge can be related back to drying defects, such as checks and warp that may cause board handling problems, mostly at the planer mill.
