Bendilicious develops simplified but versatile robotic automation processes of non standard rod bending for the prototypical purposes in architecture and product design. We are the team that loves to create by bringing steel alive. Up to the limits of imagination.
***

We incorporate all means of design and production that oscillate between digital bits and constructible atoms, mass customisation and mass production, craftsmanship and automation. Therefore we like robots, but we don't refuse to work with manual bender too. We are not afraid of welding torch or metal saw, but we would love to develop automation of those processes.

We like challenges, that is what keep us going!

OUR OFFER

FABRICATION DEVELOPMENT

We want to merge back design and making by liberating design-to-construction processes of over constrained industrial systems. We developed simplified technological solutions of robotic rod bending for non repetitive processes that are not only approachable, but also versatile.

MATERIAL BEHAVIOUR

We look closely how metal rods behave and incorporate material constraints into our design process.

We tame metal and bring it alive.

 

WORKSHOPS

We offer educational workshops to universities and private organisations around the topic of robotic rod bending. Check our list of past and future events! We are also happy to collaborate, specially to develop varied design strategies applied to robotic rod bending technology.

SYNTHESIS

We believe that the whole is more than the sum of its parts and we try to implement this at many levels. We try to combine design strategies, fabrication and material engineering in one continuous workflow. We also happily collaborate with specialists from other fields in order to build up our expertise. We want to merge back design and making by liberating design-to-construction processes of over constrained industrial systems by developing simplified and approachable processes.

 

 

PROCESS DESIGN

We have designed our process from the scratch. We know the workflow, equipment needs, and implementation requirements for a robotic rod bending methods. We have iteratively designed, fabricated and tested numerous robotic tools necessary for this process and we do not mind sharing this knowledge with you. If you are working with ABB 1200 or 4600 robots- you can directly order tools in our store. In other case- we can design the tools according to your needs and the knowledge we have.

 

 

DESIGN STRATEGIES

We are using using computational design and structural analysis tools that satisfy our needs for explorations and bring answers to sophisticated design needs in the field of non repetitive rod bended structures. We look at the big and small scale- from architecture to product design objects, installations, art pieces for special request, as well as fast prototyping for complex structures and other non-standard requests.

MEET THE TEAM THAT LOVES TO CREATE

in 2016 we have done:

lines of code written in RAPID

TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT

We wanted to merge back design and making by liberating design-to-construction processes of over constrained industrial systems.  But first, we needed to have a close look  at  industrial processes of rod bending in order to overcome it  by developing simplified solutions with the use of robotic arm. We have designed our process from the scratch. We know the workflow, equipment needs, and implementation requirements for a robotic rod bending methods. We have iteratively designed, fabricated and tested numerous robotic toolheads and bending stations necessary for this process.  If you are working with ABB 1200 or 4600 robots- you can directly order tools in our store. In other case- we can design the tools according to your needs and the knowledge we have.

We are looking forward for future developments of other processes accompanying rod bending technology. We will soon have a closer look at automated welding and assembling.
