Which cutting technology is suitable for woodworking?

The spectrum in woodworking ranges from classic applications such as timber construction, furniture production or interior design (floor/wall/ceiling) to the manufacture of toys or model making. In all of these applications, wood is not only separated by cutting: Precise molded parts and inlays are produced, wooden products are personalized or printed components are cut out.

In the woodworking sector, solid wood, plywood or fiberboard and veneers are most often used.
