UE4 use to program actual machines
Hello! Is it possible to use UE4 engine BP technology to program actual real world machines?

Well, first of all. UE4 is running on actual real world machines.
What I think you're asking is whether the visual scripting can be used for bots or tools outside of the UE4 framework. And the answer to that is: No.
BP is deeply intertwined with UE4 and you can not use it outside of it.
Though in the "real world", text based code has a huge amount of advantages. It's a scripting language and just like people don't use lua to write their software, BP would not be suitable either.

Not out of the Box, but you can add blueprint wrappers around C++ classes or libraries which can interface with the other hardware, and there are plugins to help you there if you dont want to do it from scratch
