The principle of a particleboard airflow forming machine is to pave sizing shavings by pneumatic separation. The shavings scattered in the airflow field of the paving machine are accelerated and further separated. The coarse shavings with larger diameters fall closer to the air inlet, while the fine shavings with smaller diameters fall farther away, forming slabs with gradually changing structures on the transport conveyer belt.

This study takes a self-developed particleboard airflow forming machine as an example, and the working principle is shown in Fig 1. The sizing shavings enter the measuring bin through the conveyor. When the amount of shavings in the measuring bin reaches the rated loading, the positive pressure fan and negative pressure fan are started. When the airflow field in the paving box is stable, the motors for the scattering roller and diamond roller are started simultaneously. Once the pavement instruction is sent out, the measure motor and the motor of the dispersal roller in the measuring bin are immediately started to achieve the blanketing and paving of the shavings. The positive pressure air volume generated by the positive pressure fan passes through the uniform air volume device and enters the vertical damper and the horizontal damper. The shavings falling into the pavement box are blown over under the action of the positive pressure fan and move to the tail of the pavement box with the flow. Because of gravity, coarse shavings settle faster than fine shavings. A part of the coarser shavings falls on the diamond roller directly under their own weight and are reverse transported to the outside of the pavement box falling on the transport conveyor belt, which plays the role of secondary separation.
