|Abstract:||Finger-jointed softwood lumber is widely used in manufacturing of structural or non structural applications such as glued laminated lumber and prefabricated wood I-joists. Black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) B.S.P.) is the most frequently used species for finger jointed engineered wood products in Eastern Canada. However, some of the key machining parameters must be adjusted according to the properties of the wood in order to obtain a surface quality suited for the finger jointing process. The main objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of the cutting speed and chip load on the ultimate tensile strength (UTS) of finger jointed high density black spruce wood. Four different cutting speeds and three chip loads were used as variables. A feather profile was selected with a polyurethane-based adhesive and an end-pressure of 3.45 MPa. A factorial analysis showed a statistically significant interaction between cutting speed and chip load on the UTS. The cutting speed was the most significant variable affecting finger-jointed high density black spruce. The influence of chip load on UTS was lower, being apparent only at 3260 m/min cutting speed. Results indicated that suitable finger-jointing could be achieved within a range of 1860 m/min and 3960 m/min of cutting speed with a chip-load between 0.51 m and 1.27 mm. However, the best result was obtained at 3260 m/min cutting speed and 0.89 mm chip-load. These results need to be validated by performing running mills to verify for tool wear behaviour.|
