Woodworking for the Digital Age: Tech Innovations in the Craft

When most people think of technology, woodworking probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. However, the woodworking industry has been quick to integrate new technology to improve its results — and that’s especially true here at Gerber Wood Products.

What Tech Advances Are Being Used in Woodworking?

Currently, the biggest tech advances in woodworking are CNC machines and digital design software. These tools are generally used together, as a woodworking design will be created digitally on the computer using specialty software. The software then supplies the design code to the CNC machine, giving it the instructions on how to cut the wood.

How Gerber Wood Products Uses These Technologies

At Gerber Wood Products, we provide CNC machining and routing services for a wide range of woodworking tasks, such as beam sawing, large dimension laminating, high-speed cross cutting, custom molding and profiling, finger jointing, and more. Our machines can be used with a wide variety of wood and plastic materials.

The Benefits of Tech in Woodworking

These tech innovations provide several noteworthy benefits for our work. CNC machines are incredibly precise, allowing us to achieve cuts with tight tolerances. This equipment is also extremely efficient, enabling us to produce as few as 10 parts or as many as 10,000. Because the machines are guided by computer codes, these batches have consistent quality, regardless of how many parts are being made. We can produce more parts at a faster rate, while still getting the quality results you need.

Woodworking will undoubtedly continue to evolve in the digital age as new technologies are introduced. At Gerber Wood, we’re excited to see what the future holds, and how this evolving landscape will help us do even greater work.
