This relationship, which has a significant impact, can be seen in the context of production and design for the furniture and crafts industry," HIMKI General Chairperson, Abdul Sobur, explained.

According to him, there are several points of influence of technology, can increase the production efficiency and process precision.

Secondly, designers can experiment with new materials, shapes, and construction methods, knowing that modern machines can execute their ideas with precision.

Third, sustainability. Advanced machines can optimize material use, reducing waste.

The fourth point is skilled worker. Although machines have automated many processes, skilled worker is still very important in the furniture and crafts industries. Craftsmen are needed to program and operate CNC machines, as well as adding finishing touches, assembly, and quality control.

In short, explained Sobur, machining technology has changed the furniture and crafts industry by enabling mass production, increasing efficiency and precision, encouraging innovation and customization, contributing to sustainability efforts.
