AGUILERA, ALFREDO; INZUNZA, LUIS; ALZAMORA, ROSA  and  TAPIA, LUIS. Production cost evaluation in portable bandsaw mill operations. Bosque (Valdivia) [online]. 2005, vol.26, n.2, pp.107-114. ISSN 0717-9200.

New technologies in portable bandsaw mill operations for small and medium size production scale shows several advantages face to traditional saw practice in the country. The main importance aspects are better yield of raw material, lowness surface roughness of sawn timber, great equipment mobility and versatility in cutting programs. However, production costs involved in each operation is a fundamental aspect to consider, because determine his feasibility. The study developed shows a detailed production costs analysis in different scenarios, for bandsaw mill operations, reflecting consistent results in computer program developed for this study, concerning technical and economical feasibility in real operations.
