A wood processing machine is a device that performs various operations on wood, such as cutting, peeling, crushing, or shaving. Some common types of wood processing machines are:
– Wood debarker: This machine removes the bark from logs or branches by rotating them against a sharp blade or a ring of teeth. The bark is then separated from the wood by a conveyor belt or a drum screen. Wood debarking improves the quality and efficiency of subsequent processes, such as sawing or chipping.
– Wood crusher: This machine reduces the size of wood materials by using a rotating shaft with hammers or knives attached to it. The wood is fed into the machine through a hopper or a conveyor belt and then crushed into small pieces or chips. Wood crushers are used for making biomass pellets, briquettes, or charcoal.
– Hammer mill: This machine grinds wood materials into fine powders by using a high-speed rotating hammer and a screen. The size of the powder can be adjusted by changing the screen size or the hammer speed. Hammer mills are used for making wood flour, animal feed, or compost.
– Wood shavings machine: This machine produces thin and uniform wood shavings by cutting wood with a sharp blade or a planer knife. The wood shavings are then collected by a blower or a cyclone. Wood shavings are used for bedding, packaging, or insulation.
