The paper presents a novel approach for utilizing rotary-cut veneers for the building product 'Ultra High Performance Plywood (UHPP)'. In contrast to common planar veneer-based products with rectangular cross-sections, UHPP combines high mechanical properties of laminated veneers with a high yield production processes (peeling and moulding process). The innovation features a forming process to produce light-weight construction elements with special focus on load-bearing optimized cross-sections. This paper provides a comprehensive literature review on different forming processes with special focus on veneer moulding, parameters limiting the formability of veneers and reports on laboratory based manufacturing processes.
