Abstract

This work investigates the influence of wedge shape and depth of pressing on creation of stresses, as well as the influence of these stresses on quality of wood surface during wood embossing. For the identification of stresses, SolidWorks software was used, through which a simulation was made for the progression of monitored stresses which occur when pressing the wedges with various shapes to different depths of pressing. Based on these findings, it was possible to monitor factors that were modified so that embossing would achieve the desired shape and dimensionally stable surface without undesirable quality defects.
