A wire is used in a wide array of industries. We are talking about stainless steel hospital equipment like frames and handles, automotive support wires and other structural frames. While manual wire bending has been around for a while, technology has made everything better. For instance, thanks to Computer Numerical Control (CNC) technology, precision wire bending has been made possible. Today, people are able to have a wire cut and bent to their specific standards.
This is what you need to know about CNC wire bending process
The CNC bending machine is automated and consists of a steel hoop machine and a straightening system. How do they work? Well, the straightening system is comprised of two sets of rolls that are adjusted vertically and horizontally through automation. There also are traction wheels that are powered by a servo motor, whose job is to straighten the steel bars with the utmost precision.
This is how. The slowing level is composed of gears which bend the disk wheel. As a result, the curved surface is able to enter a center to suit different orientations. Note that the input and output ratio is balanced thanks to the presence of reducer and the brake motor. These work to control the bending speed by making it stable and accurate.
Before the wire bending process begins, the operator ensures that all the machine parts are in good working condition and have been adequately lubricated and maintained. The screws need to be in place to ensure that the machine works as intended. CNC wire bending is a fully automated procedure. That means that the operation of the machine are controlled by the CNC system.
