In today’s high paced world of business, time and quality are of the essence. For USA furniture manufacturers, efficiency, precision, waste reduction and time are vital when producing high quality furniture chair parts. In order to help them achieve these goals, hardwood furniture manufacturers rely not only on skilled craftsmen, but on high tech machines such as CNC router machines and CAD software (link to NPFurniture_Article8_CAD Software).
CNC wood router working with CAD software
A CNC wood router, also known as a CNC wood milling machine, CNC wood router, CNC wood lathe, CNC router machine, CNC wood cutter, wood CNC machine or CNC woodworking machine, is a computer numerical control tool that uses computer software to drive a mechanical system.
For example, a chair and all its ensuing wood chair parts are designed using CAD software, computer aided design software. This computer program allows wooden furniture designers to create virtual 3D models of the furniture that is to be manufactured. Whether it is dining chair parts or recliner chair parts, CAD allows designers to quickly and clearly realize their vision.
Once the designer is satisfied with the 3D model on the computer, the wood cnc machine acts very much like a printer. The CAD software sends instructions to the CNC router machine that will produce a “hard copy” of the 3D model using a cutting tool instead of an ink jet. The CNC cutting machine cuts the wood piece to the exact size as per the 3D model following the CAD software’s specifications.
By inputting your wood chair parts specifications into a computer, the hardwood furniture manufacturers are able to create precise and accurate furniture parts in a short period. The CAD software controls the CNC wood router and determines the cuts to be made.

These two CNC machines are similar, yet different in the following aspects:
By using the latest technology such as CNC router machines and CAD software, the top USA furniture manufacturers ensure that all chair parts meet the exact specifications of the designer, that waste is reduced and productivity is increased.
