Services provided by the laboratory:

The laboratory supports the practical training of the students from the Faculty of Forestry. Investigations are carried out on software support and optimization of CNC woodworking processes. Also studied are the operating modes of CNC machines, the operation of cutting tools, the quality of machined surfaces of wood products, wood based materials and etc. Noise and vibration generated by cutting of different materials are measured and analyzed.

Equipment available in the laboratory:

The laboratory has a CNC router for teaching and laboratory purposes; a CO 2 cutting and engraving laser with 40W power; specialized software for compiling NC programs. For teaching and research the laboratory also has at its disposal a ROVER A3.30 CNC wood machining center (Biesse, Italy). The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for determining the quality of surfaces and for measuring the vibro-acoustic performance of machines as a result of changing cutting modes.
