Assessing the potential of wood welding for Australian eucalypts and tropical species

Abstract : The wood welding potential of Australian and tropical species has been investigated. Optimized parameters for Eucalyptus saligna, Eucalyptus pilularis, Corymbia maculata, Ochroma pyramidale, and Tectona grandis were determined using a standard tensile strength test. The results confirmed the importance of density in the optimisation process. The grain direction also proved to have a significant impact on the welded joint strength of species featuring large wood rays or vessels in diagonal and/or radial pattern. Wood welding could therefore be an alternative for such species where gluing is required.
