Familiarity with woods is quite a common phenomenon among all of us. Per contra, how many of us are aware as to how a wood is processed? A wood undergoes several operations on itself namely, woodcutting, drilling, grinding, shaping and finishing. Old were the days where woods were processed manually by the common man. Manual operation is suitable for a small-scale job. But what about the large-scale job?
Woodworking machinery are meant for a large-scale job. It is an electrically powered wood machine, meant to operate on wood. For jobs like operating on large-scale wood, manual operation is not possible, hence, the use of woodworking machines is required.
Forms of Woodworking Machines
Accuracy and efficiency are the two major qualities required to bring out the most appropriate form of woodwork. The suitability of the machines is therefore judged before processing any wood. Let us take a stroll through some of the major machines.
- Chain/chisel mortiser – This woodworking machine is used to drill holes accurately into wooden surfaces. The drills are fabricated in rectangular or square slots to get the solicited mortise and tenon joints.
- Surface/thickness planner – A surface planer is a woodworking machinery tool that is used to level out the top surfaces of the wooden boards. These tools have different thickness facilities. Thereupon, according to the specifics of the woodworking requirement, the industry can level out and thicken or lessen the thickness with this tool, efficiently and relevantly.
- Grinder – This machinery uses an abrasive wheel to cut small chips from the woodwork. The most commonly used grinders are the blade grinders, gear type grinding tools and bench/table-top grinders. It is configured to perform kinds of tasks like sharpening, finishing, removing rough projections, cleaning, polishing and buffing the surfaces.
Once you have used woodworking machinery, the woodwork will come out as one of the finest architectures, having seen their efficiency and accuracy.
