Title (EN) FEEDBACK-BASED SYSTEM FOR BENDING WIRE AND FORMING SPRINGS
(FR) SYSTÈME BASÉ SUR LA RÉTROACTION POUR COURBER UN FIL MÉTALLIQUE ET FORMER DES RESSORTS
Abstract:
(EN) Feedback-based systems and methods for bending wire are provided. The systems and methods may allow for modification of wire bending based on feedback received from one or more feedback-generating elements (e.g., image-capturing device(s), computer processing device(s), vision systems, etc.) used for monitoring one or more characteristics of a wire (e.g., shape, size, dimension, angular configuration, etc.) to determine, and provide to various wire-bending components of the system, appropriate modifications to the wire-bending process. Modifications to the wire-bending process may occur in real time without stopping the wire-bending process. Furthermore, a wire may be bent into a sinusoidal wire structure for forming springs for use in various applications.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés basés sur la rétroaction pour courber un fil métallique. Les systèmes et les procédés peuvent permettre la modification de courbure de fil métallique sur la base d'une rétroaction reçue depuis un ou plusieurs éléments de génération de rétroaction (par exemple, un ou plusieurs dispositif(s) de capture d'image, dispositif(s) de traitement informatique, systèmes de vision, etc.) utilisés pour surveiller une ou plusieurs caractéristiques d'un fil métallique (par exemple, forme, taille, dimension, configuration angulaire, etc.) pour déterminer, et fournir à différents composants de courbure de fil métallique du système, des modifications appropriées du processus de courbure de fil métallique. Des modifications du processus de courbure de fil métallique peuvent se produire en temps réel sans arrêter le processus de courbure de fil métallique. En outre, un fil métallique peut être courbé en une structure de fil métallique sinusoïdale pour former des ressorts destinés à être utilisés dans différentes applications.
