With the rapid development of furniture market in current years, woodworking machinery is getting popular. The demand for efficient, effective and environmental friendly woodworking machinery is increasing due to the raising labor cost and competition. Comparing with the traditional machinery, CNC woodworking machinery has better performance on production efficiency, timber utilization, optimization of production process and safety. It can also fulfill the requirement of enterprises to increase production effectiveness, to save labor cost and to motivate product competitiveness. China’s “The 12th Five Year Plan” clearly stated the developing direction of industrial robot and related components, leading the industry to move from labor intensive to automation, numerical control, energy-saving and emission reduction in order to meet the future trend. The Plan has further promoted the development of CNC machinery.

In addition, there is strong export of woodworking machinery in China. The major exporting markets are third world countries, Southeast Asia and South Asia regions, while better quality products will even export to American and European market. However, with the fierce competition in furniture market, machinery importing countries has strong request on the effective and efficient equipment in order to fulfill the personalized needs of people. At this point, CNC machinery has the significant advantage to the traditional equipment. In developed countries, numerical control technology is widely applied to woodworking machinery. Therefore, it is the direction and the trend for woodworking machinery to move forward to numerical control.
