CNC Wire Bending

What is CNC Wire Bending and how is it useful? The acronym “CNC” stands for Computer Numerical Control. CNC Wire Bending is the process of bending wire using a machine that has a computer memory.

CNC bending machines work with pre-existing machines to fabricate and mass-produce bends in wire. Machines can program the pre-existing machine to bend wire in very specific ways.

CNC Wire Bending machines, which are generally automatic, can be made to have a single or double head, and can be made fully electric. They can also be equipped with integrated load and unload capabilities.

They accept many types of wire, such as aluminum and stainless steel, to fit the needs of the consumer. Bends can be set to custom angles. They may come with one or more reversible bending heads. They have clockwise or counterclockwise rotation and variable radius.

Double-headed bending machines are well-suited to performing machining operations on a medium and long workpieces with many bends. Symmetrical and/or closed workpieces also work well. These are generally used in automotive, appliances, internal and external furnishing, shop and supermarket equipment and military sectors.

CNC Wire Bending machines may be ordered with accessories like chamfering, pressing, decoiling, marking, end forming, drilling, marking or threading components. Both 2D and 3D machines are available, and they can both expand to accommodate accessory modules.

CNC Wire Bending machines have many advantages. Electric wire bending machines, in particular, run more inexpensively because they require about half of the energy consumed by electro-hydraulic machines.

All CNC Wire Bending machines save money through efficiency increase, by easily recreating the programmed design on a robust and continuous basis. It also decreases the number of workers needed to complete a function. The CNC Wire Bending machine produces highly accurate parts and it is more functional than a 3D printer.

Accessories can often be built in-line, allowing for turn-key end product manufacturing. This machine is super beneficial to a number of markets. In addition to those already mentioned, CNC Wire Bending supports numerous other OEM manufacturing applications, such as air and space, household appliances, lawn and garden, construction, HVAC, storage and material handling.
