Rod and pipe bending is widely used for various industrial purposes. Most of the rod bending machines are hydraulic or screw based that require a lot of time and energy for bending rods. So here we propose a compact and pneumatic based rod and pipe bending machine that bends pipes and rods as per angle set by user. Our system uses pneumatic piston, pipes, valves, hinges, supporting frame and electronics mechanism to achieve accurate bending. We use pneumatic piston attached to a movable bed that is attached to the supporting frame using hinges for vertical movement. This bed is used to support the materials to be bent. We then use the supporting frame to mount the rod support and holders. We now use electronic sensors to get reading of the bending angle. User is allowed to select the angle at which bending is needed. As per users settings made the system operates the pneumatic system once user starts bending process. The system now operates the pneumatic cylinder automatically until desired bending has been achieved. This machine demonstrates the concept of fully automatic pneumatic bending system.
