This is a coil winding machine to make it easier to wind coil around an object. I have been wanting to make one of these for a while and since there are some projects coming up with coils, I thought this was the best time.
The machine is a very simple design with 3D printed and laser-cut parts with aluminum extrusion as the basic frame. The coils get made using Nema17 motors, all controlled by the PLEX controller with Stepper motor drivers stacked on the Controller.
how the machine works
The machine is very simple, once the object is mounted, wire attached, turned on and homed, the user selects the parameters required and selects run. The machine will then start running. As the objects rotate, the Slide will go back and forth to evenly spread the wire.
This machine could be controlled with GCode but is currently not.
