Abstract

A sawing simulation software was evaluated by comparison with a real situation in the industrial sawing of maritime pine (Pinus pinaster Ait.) stems. At an operational sawmill sawing yields were measured for the conversion of logs with two sawing patterns: production of boards and production of boards and lumber. The simulation used the WoodCIM® optimisation software with similar sawing set-ups and dimensionally matching virtual logs obtained from cross cutting of 3D mathematical reconstructions of maritime pine stems. The virtual maritime pine stems and the sawing simulation software showed potential to evaluate the impact of raw material and process characteristics on the production performance. The simulated sawing yields corresponded closely to the industrial yields for the production of boards (57% volume yield). For production of lumber and boards, the simulation allowed to obtain a higher volume (45% vs. 53%). The negative impact of resin production on the sawing yields was estimated by comparing the industrial yields of resin tapped trees with matching virtual logs and showed a loss of 11% sawn wood volume, increasing with log diameter.
