The Kid Should See This

The fastest wire bending machine in the world

Advertised as the fastest wire bending machine in the world, the AFE-2D6 ULTRA CNC Wire Bender from Automated Industrial Machinery, Inc can create a variety of perfectly bent shapes in a ridiculously short amount of time: hooks, zig zags, squares, circles, and more.

The precise, repetitive nature of wire bending is pretty fascinating to watch, even when the machines aren’t operating at record speeds. Check out a demo video showcasing “wire production with robot integration and an automated secondary press operation.”

Next: Watch Arthur Ganson bend wires into gears by hand.

Plus, watch more machines, including these battery organizing robots, this carrot peeling machine, this farfalle pasta making machine, and this gardening robot that transplants pansies.
