Arduino controlled CNC Coil Winder Answered
Arduino controlled CNC Coil Winder
This open source project that I am working on. Is an Arduino controlled CNC Coil Winder machine.
Since I have the need for precise coil winding, a CNC winder machine is the solution.
Machines like the one I am trying to build cost around $4,000-$9,000.
I am building a machine with the same quality for under $300. Is hard to believe but is possible.
The problem: Get rid of CNC software.
I think that Arduino can do the job here. I am able to make it work with an standard CNC solution, but the problem is that I don't want to interact with a computer at all, and I am pretty much sure that an Arduino application can do the job.
My progress is on the 85%. I have the mechanical part ready to go. Is the Arduino part where I am stuck.
So far, I can keep going on with CNC software, but that is not my goal.
I'll probably work on the Arduino solution later, but I'll really appreciate help with an Arduino solution.
This is an Open Source Share-Alike 3 project.
Edit: The picture bellow is from a commercial Coil Winder and the only purpose is to illustrate what kind of machine I am building.
