The origin and development of woodworking machinery
The oldest woodworking machine tool recorded in foreign historical materials is the bow lathe invented by the ancient Egyptians.
This ancient method has gradually evolved and developed into two or three turns of the rope on the pulley, the rope is placed on the elastic rod bent into a bow shape, and the bow is pushed and pulled back and forth to make the processed object rotate, so as to perform turning, which is the "bow lathe" ".
Early "bow lathes"
In 1777, Miller in England invented the circular saw, which began to saw wood in a rotating way, and was widely used in shipyards and other places.
the first hydraulic cylinder boring machine
In 1791, "the father of woodworking machine tools" S. Bentham began to complete the invention of woodworking equipment such as planers, milling machines, routers, and drilling machines. Their successful development provides the basis for the development of CNC machine tools.
Until the early 20th century in my country, the production of wooden furniture was still in the handicraft stage, and the processing methods were mainly traditional woodworking tools, and modern processing equipment rarely appeared.
After the reform and opening up, domestic woodworking machinery began to sprout and flourish. Today, we have about 1,200 woodworking machinery production enterprises, and about 200 above-scale enterprises, employing nearly 100,000 people and more than 6,000 engineering and technical personnel, and can provide about 1,100 woodworking machinery products in 69 categories.
