Kickstarter Coil Winder Project
« on: October 31, 2012, 06:13:13 PM »
Hi
We have been working on our USB CNC Coil Winder for the last 6 months and now that Kickstarter has launched in the UK, we have submitted a project to make 100 machines.

If you have 5 minurs to check it out, then that would be great.

Cheers

Very nice work, Sean, and a good idea to use KickStarter. It sounds like the project is really taking off. Winding guitar pickups is a great idea.

Next...  the toroidal winder?

Very cool Sean. Would love to have one for winding guitar pickups etc.

So they are about 1000 GBP at the moment?

Thanks guys :)
Would love to make a toroidal winder one day, but a bit more complicated and probably not that much demand.

Designed a Rodin Starship Add-on for it today that uses 2 more steppers controlling a Pin bobbin that will allow different pin count Starship coils to be wound.
But again no idea if the demand is there, but will probably make it for a laugh and for use by myself when I get 5 minutes spare.

I do not see us getting all the funding and I think we have done well to get over 30 units now made and out the door. But it lets people know we are around as such.
The Machine does seem pricey at just below £1k but then it is still miles cheaper than a commercial winding machine and just as accurate.

There is a lot of build time that goes into each unit and usually it takes us 7-8 weeks to get 10 out the door, when you work out the profit on that, it pretty bad. But then it is the hobby market we are aiming at.

Cheers

Sean.

Well managed to get round to making the Add-on for the Coil Winder.
Please find video showing the machine winding a Starship coil

That is cool.

But...... toroids.  A good toroidal coil winder could be your fortune.

I honestly think you will have more demand for a toroid winder than for a Rodin coil winder. Call me skeptical.... but there it is.

Here is the basic idea to wind a toroid mechanically, or even manually. You make a splittable reel bobbin that will fit thru your toroid, you assemble the bobbin onto the toroid and then wind the bobbin with the exact length of wire you will wind onto the toroid... .here's where a clever mechanical arrangement is needed to hold things and rotate the bobbin so the wire comes off the spool onto the bobbin.

Then you do the reverse: you secure the free end of the wire from the bobbin to the toroid, then you "unwrap" the wire off of the bobbin onto the toroid, by rotating the bobbin, while also rotating the toroid to make the wraps even, tight and smooth. Again, a clever mechanical arrangement will hold the bobbin and the toroid at right angles and rotate them both at the appropriate speeds.

Should be easy as pi......
 ;)

Sorry about the bad photo and the miserable sketch.... I'm no artiste, just a lazy winder.

Yep agree, I did look into making one a couple of years ago, but the heads were very expensive back then.
But in saying that I have a couple of ideas now on what I could use, so watch this space :)
