Head of chair: Prof. Dr. Gradimir Danon

Chair development: 

The Chair of machines and apparatuses in wood processing was established on 29th August 2002. The Chair  was composed of teachers, staff and laboratory technicians from the disbanded Chair of finished wood products design and the Chair of final wood processing. At the time of establishment the Chair consisted of five teachers and six associates: prof. Dr. Petar Todorović, full prof. Dr. Milutin Marjanov, full prof. Dr. Gradimir Danon.full prof., Dr. Dragan Lukačev, Assistant Professor, Dr. Aleksandar Dedić, assistant professor, MSc Nataša Atanackov teaching assistant, Mr. Zoran Đurišić, teaching assistant, Mira Mirić Milosavljević, assistant trainee, Vladislava Mihailović, assistant trainee, Dragan Jančevski, assistant trainee and Srđan Svrzić, assistant trainee.

At that time, the Chair members covered the following subjects: Technical Physics (first year of undergraduate studies), Engineering Mechanics (first year of undergraduate studies), Fundamentals of Mechanical Engineering (second year of undergraduate studies), Elements of regulatory techniques in wood processing (second year of undergraduate studies), Internal transport in wood processing (third year of undergraduate studies), and machinery and woodworking tools (third year of undergraduate studies).

Two laboratory technicians, Mihajlo Bogdanović (Technical Physics and Elements of regulatory techniques in wood processing) and Milan Vujković (Internal transport in wood processing) were the Chair members at the time of its establishment.

At the constitutive session, the first elected Head of the Chair was Dr. Gradimir Danon full professor. The elected Deputy Head of the Chair was Dr. Petar Todorović, full professor and the elected Secretary Srđan Svrzić assistant trainee. After the expiry of the two-year mandate the elected Head of the Chair was Dr. Petar Todorović, full professor, his deputy was Dr. Gradimir Danon, full prof., and secretary Goran Milutinović, Grad. mechanical engineer. They remained at these functions until October 2010. After the retirement of prof.
