Woodworking machines - use and safety

1 hour and 8 minutes

Corresponds to ½ day of teacher-directed learning

Description

Swedish Wood has put together eight videos about how to safely use woodworking machines.
In order to handle woodworking machines safely, it is important that you have the right knowledge and expertise. You need to know how the machine works, how to check that all the guards, screens and emergency stop features are intact, and if this is the right machine for the job you want to do.

It is essential that the operator is sufficiently trained for safe use, a risk assessment is conducted and instructions have been drawn up for each machine.

It is also important that employers know what rules apply.

The videos are aimed primarily at the following target groups:
* Small and medium-sized joinery workshops.
* Larger companies that work in the production of furniture and fittings.
* Higher education courses that involved the use of woodworking machines.

Course modules

1. Safety and security at work

In order to handle woodworking machines safely, it is important that you have the right knowledge and expertise. You need to know how the machine works, how to check that all the guards, screens and emergency stop features are intact, and if this is the right machine for the job you want to do. In addition to machine safety, it is also important to be aware of the most common risks in the wood industry, such as noise, vibrations, ergonomics, dust and chemicals.

The video address the basic requirements regarding safety and protection.
Under their health and safety responsibilities, each company may draw up its own local safety rules, which you must familiarise yourself with.

Educator: Partnership
Duration: 5 minutes (Total duration of the course: 1 hour and 8 minutes)

2. Spindle moulder

The spindle moulder has the widest range of applications of all the woodworking machines. It can be used for many different tasks, including milling all sorts of profiles on straight and curved workpieces. The spindle moulder can carry out practically every kind of milling, if you use the extensive selection of accessories for the machines. The spindle moulder is used in both the furniture and the joinery industries.

3. Wide belt sander

The wide belt sander is designed to sand flat material in large series. The machine is used for both surface sanding and equalising. With surface sanding, a consistently thick layer is sanded off the whole surface of the workpiece, regardless of whether the piece varies in thickness at all. With equalising, the workpiece is sanded to an even thickness in the same way that you plane a workpiece to an even thickness in a thicknesser.

4. Panel saw

A panel saw has the same basic design as a circular saw, where the material can be controlled either by an adjustable side fence or via a sliding table. The panel saw is a very universal saw and one of the basic workhorses in machining wood in small and medium-sized joinery workshops.

5. Mortise drill

The mortise drill is used primarily to drill long mortises for joints in furniture and fittings.

Duration: 7 minutes (Total duration of the course: 1 hour and 8 minutes)

6. Thicknesser

A thicknesser is used to plane a workpiece to particular thicknesses or dimensions. The input workpiece should have a flattened side, which is placed face down so that the cutter planes the upper face of the wood.

7. Jointer

The jointer is used in the joinery industry to joint and plane wood. This means planing one or two adjacent surfaces so that they are absolutely smooth and usually also at a 90° angle to each other. The process planes away cupping, warping and other defects. The jointers used in small or medium-sized workshops are often fed by hand. If planing large batches, the machine can be fitted with a feed system.

8. CNC

CNC (Computer Numerical Control) is a method of controlling woodworking machines by computer. A CNC machine has a multitude of uses and is able to perform most of the operations carried out by conventional woodworking machines, such as milling, drilling and sawing. It can also be programmed to create advanced 3D models and templates. This makes it a common feature of any modern joinery workshop.
