Wood veneers have been in use since ancient times;however, they were produced with the help of Saws. The process of Sawing is now seen as ineffective because of the Saw and the width of it’s blade that tends to chip off and wastes a lot of wood in this process. In todays time, the process has completely changed and a modern veneer peeling and slicing machine has now become very common.
The processing of logs is now being conducted with the help of veneer peeling and slicing machines. The trunk is set in motion and is rotated very quickly on it’s axis. Now, a knife is pushed on to the entire wooden log that continuously peels off the veneer.
There are a few variations in the process of veneer peeling; One of the most common oneis adding of patterns on the veneer being produced. An optimal process for this is that of the production of single layers of plywood that are used for packaging fruits in boxes. The thickness of the cut of veneer can be between 0.5mm to 1mm.
Veneer peeling through machines ensures an efficient processing of logs, is optimal for production of single layers of plywood and is used in coating of fine surfaces or production of block board veneers. The efficiency in production is and has always been the top priority of Starwood Veneers and Lumber. By virtue of state of the art veneer peeling machines, Starwood veneers is known to be the market leader ofbest quality veneers.
