The aim of this project was to determine if there were any international advances in Machine Stress Grader (MSG) accuracy checking techniques and or procedures that could be adopted/adapted to enhance current industrial MSG Accuracy Check methods.

The review focused on documenting international MSG practices with particular emphasis on controlling the grading accuracy of flat-wise bending type stress grading machines. The study tour focused on viewing first hand current MSG practices in the US and Europe.
