MDF engraving is one of the main CNC projects of our woodworking engraving machine. The real CNC wood projects involve wood products, wood CNC machines, CNC milling machine manufacturing and so on. Now widely used in the furniture industry. The CNC wood carving project mainly includes solid wood furniture carving, solid wood art mural carving, MDF paint-free door carving, kitchen window door carving and other furniture industry applications. CNC woodworking projects in the mold industry CNC projects include carving various wooden molds, such as automobile molds and aviation wooden molds. CNC wood project in the musical instrument industry. The CNC project includes carving 3D curved musical instrument surfaces and cutting musical instrument shapes.

MDF CNC router IGOLDENCNC has many models of wood CNC router suitable to engrave and cut MDF boards. For MDF craft lovers, we have hobby/desktop wood CNC router, which has small size but high precision. For MDF furniture making enterprises, the ATC or multi-process or multi-spindle wood CNC router which has high speed and stable performance can meet their needs. Here I recommend 3 types of MDF CNC routers, which are respectively suitable for hobbyists, small MDF products making factories and large output furniture making enterprises.
