Gemini twin-headed bender

In 2016, AIM announced a new, sophisticated twin-headed Gemini bender! Twenty-Four (24) axis of control provide unparalleled capabilities including real, independent twin-3D head forming, “single-head” part forming, off-plane 2D and 3D bending, with “Zero” minimum center clamp length limitations. It’s wire straightener consists of two servo controlled contra rotating rotors and a gantry system with two “pick and place” arms, assures millimeter accuracy on placing and retrieving wire forms to the system while programmability allows an automatic “helping Hand” when needed. The Gemini system improves previous model production rates by approximately 40% while keeping the easy and smart programming with graphics animation and collision detection, making it easy to avoid careless programming mistakes.

AIM offers upgraded and updated 2D and 3D CNC wire bending solutions, single and double bending head machines, Fanuc robotics integration, and fully automated systems. These completely automated work cell solutions take wire from coil, form, weld and systematically arrange the finished parts.

Backed by our 10 years of robotic experience as authorized integrators of Fanuc Robotics plus partnerships with Universal and Yaskawa Motoman robotics, AIM is also here to help with any industrial automation needs! Our extensive parts handling, vision inspection, secondary welding, and press operating skills allow us to integrate current or new equipment to provide customers with high-speed, fully autonomous cells. Upon request AIM will provide free integration assessments for any type and any brand of machine.

AFE-2Dx

The AFE-2Dx line of equipment is designed around our standard AFM-2Dx line without all of the features that might not be needed from all users. It is a simplified version of our standard AFM-2Dx line and it does not have a tilting top plate. The AFM in the model number stands for “AccuForm Modular” which means that the machine can be configured in Modules. For common features please read our page Common attributes for the majority of our equipment. 

The basic version of the AFE-2Dx line has a feeder module and a bender module. Each module provides its own operation but all modules are controlled and synchronized from the same computer system. On the AFE-2Dx line, the computer system is mounted on the Feeder module.

AFM-2Dx-T

AccuForm Modular 2Dx, Tilting Table, Single Stage Bending Head 

The AccuForm Modular line consists of components that are interchangeable within the same size. The major components that comprise the AccuForm Modular line are as follows:

1) Turntable
2) Straightener
3) Feeder
4) 2 Dimensional Bender
5) Optional accessories such as punching, chamfering, threading, drilling, piercing, marking, and many others

Each AccuForm Modular CNC wire bending machine can currently have up to 32 motion axes, depending on the machine configuration. These machines take wire directly from coil, straighten it, bend it, and cut it to create wire products designed with the use of AIM’s exclusive software package.  SmartEditor® provides flexibility and simplicity in setup.  Programming is quick and easy. All you need is to enter the lengths and angles of your product, view the design, edit if necessary, and begin production!

Models offered with a turret option (-T) add one servo axis, for automatic and programmable bending tool-changer along with a second bending pin.

AFES 3Dx-TD

Our New AFES-3DxT models are here! AFES, is an updated five servo axis, turret tool changer machine with an ultra-fast servo cutter  at a very attractive price !
Multiple Mandrel Indexing Tool Head Option
All AFES-3D benders are available with the Turret Head indexing tool head option. Turret Head
machines feature not just one but TWO programmable bending pins. The hard bending pin is
used for short bend-to-bend requirements and producing parts with extremely complex bends.
The roller bearing bending pin is used for radius generation in making rings, spirals or large radius
bends.

The multi-mandrel tool cluster holds round pins, roller tools, and sharp bend dies…all of which are
user replaceable. The Servo Wire Cutter provides burr-free square cuts and is capable of
a “zero length” cut-off.
Models start from 2mm up to 13mm

  FEATURES AND BENEFITS
-SmartEditor® Windows® programming, office version available for off-line programming
-Dual processors allow concurrent part production and new part programming
-Instant Production Statistics for estimating
-“Dial-A-Service” tech support via modem or Internet
-Optional extra I/O for auxiliary equipment
-Optional STEP File Import
-Tool changeover in 8 minutes. Highest overall forming speeds in the industry
-CAD import of DXF/XYZ files directly into SmartEditor® programming software

AFCxD

The AFC in the model number stands for “AccuForm Compact” meaning the machine configuration is compact.

The basic version of the AFC-x line has a feeder module and a bender module. Each module provides its own operation, yet all modules are controlled and synchronized from the same computer system. On the AFC-x line, the computer system mounts with the bender module.
The feeder module feeds the wire through a straightener to the bender module. The bender mechanism bends the wire according to pre-programmed data and “shears” it with an integral pneumatic cutter.
As AIM is on the cutting edge of wire shop work-cell design, AIM Engineering is always developing new methods to increase the production floor flexibility.
Models are available with wire capcity  from 2mm up to 10mm
