MagPi Forming Machine
No machine before has simplified the labor-intensive task of creating arcs of a specified radius.
The user loads the material to be bent onto the horizontal bed while the machine’s work surface is in the lowest position. Roller clamps are placed over the material and secured to the machine’s movable arms.
Arms pivot at different points, transforming from a flat surface into an arc of a gradually decreasing radius until the desired radius is achieved. After the adhesive has cured, or the material has cooled, the clamps are removed and the formed arc is finished. The user then returns the machine to the flat position and prepares the next arc.
