A particleboard mat-forming and conveying system has been designed and built which will handle a wide variety of furnish sizes and shapes. It consists of a conveying line, a mat-forming head, and continuous mat weighing machanism. Mats with uniform density have been produced from a wide variety of particle geometries including drum-cut wafers, disk-cut flakes, ring-cut flakes, hammermilled particle, and planer shavings. The ability to form mats from such varied furnishes makes the system very useful in a laboratory setting.
