What is The Best Woodworking Engraving Machine for My Business? 

Woodworking engraving machine VS hand engraving:

1. Different carving effects

The relief production of woodworking engraving machine is designed by the engraving software to design the engraving path and then input into the computer for automatic engraving. Therefore, the details of the engraving are neat and unified. Whether it is a flower plate or a cloud bead, every place is the same size, and it looks like nothing different. This is extremely suitable for mass production, making furniture manufacturing more refined and perfect. Hand-engraving can’t be compared with a woodworking engraving machine regardless of its accuracy. However, hand-engraving also has its own unique advantages. It can “pierce through the branches” to carry out multiple layers of openwork, making the carved workpiece look full of life.

2. Different engraving efficiency

Some customers also choose a woodworking engraving machine to engrave and then do the manual modification, which can make the engraving efficiency and precision higher.
