LaBoMaP Wood Materials and Machining Topic 1 WMM

Topic 1: Control of primary wood processing

The WMM team has an expertise recognized by the scientific community in primary wood transformation (peeling and milling): optimization and control of cutting parameters.

  • The main topics of this research domain are: Wood cutting instrumentation and modeling. Several PhDs were perfomed, devoted to measure and to model the cutting forces for peeling and milling.
