Bamboo is a sustainable and environmentally friendly material that has the potential to improve the global decline of natural resources. Bamboo is very popular in the countryside of almost all Southeast countries, particularly in Vietnam. Its ability can replace some kinds of wood in decoration and household goods. Bamboo grows up rapidly and can be harvested within 3 to 5 years of planting, in the meanwhile, the harvesting time of other hardwood trees must be from 8 to 10 years or longer. The inherent characteristics of bamboo are lighter than other wood materials and have a value in social and environmental benefits. Its advances in manufacturing technology have created high-value products such as bamboo flooring and bamboo furniture that can substitute for wood flooring and wood furniture. According to the biology studies, the bamboo has the characteristics that can replace the natural wood, but the direction of development from the stage of cultivation to the stage of finished products has not been exploited thoroughly. The production of bamboo plywood will become a great potential for the bamboo plywood industry in Vietnam. Generally, the fabrication of bamboo plywood depends on the following processes such as cutting, grinding to powder or pulp, drying, and pressing processes. In cutting and grinding processes, the trivial remains of bamboo after use, shoots… can be chopped and ground to a powder that is dried and pressed into bamboo plywood by a specialized machine similar to the production of artificial wood particleboard (PB). Bamboo powder drying machine plays a very important role in the production process of bamboo plywood. The function of the machine is drying bamboo powder to get the technical required appropriate moisture before pressing it into the standard bamboo boards. This article presents a design of bamboo powder drying machine with simple structure, long life, medium productivity, and price suitable for medium and small scale production of the Vietnam market. The first bamboo powder drying machine that was manufactured in DCSElab and its products is considered to respond to the technical requirements of customers.
