Planing and moulding operations carried out within the woodworking industry make extensive use of rotary machining. Cutter-marks are produced on the timber surface which are generally accepted as unavoidable. More noticeable surface defects may be produced by such factors as cutter-head imbalance, and until recently most research has concentrated on removing these defects. When a high quality finish is required, a further machining operation, such as sanding, is often required to remove cutter-marks. What is required, is a modified machining process which combines a surface closer to the ideal fixed knife finish, whilst retaining the flexibility, practicality and cost effectiveness of rotary machining.
