Pensa Labs announces the launch of D.I.Wire PRO, its newest CNC wire bender, at Fabtech. Developed by Pensa, a Brooklyn-based design and invention firm, the D.I.Wire PRO offers the kind of power, speed, and precision that professionals never thought possible from a desktop machine.
Originally built as a design solution for the invention firm’s prototyping needs, this next generation D.I.Wire has a patented bend mechanism that delivers smooth, tight radius curves — from fine orthodontic retainer wire to 3/16” stainless steel parts applicable to jets, cars, home appliances, furniture, robotics and more.
“We learned a lot from users of our original machine and incorporated those lessons into the D.I.Wire PRO”, said Marco Perry, co-founder of Pensa Labs. “Customers told us that they wanted to be able to perform smooth, 180 degree bends in a wider variety of materials and diameters. This machine satisfies this need and provides professional-level precision and accuracy in the process.”
D.I.Wire PRO bends wire diameters ranging from 0.028″ to 0.1875”, making it a versatile tool for rapid prototyping and short-run production. Fully customizable but affordable, the D.I.Wire PRO bridges the gap between time-consuming hand-bending and expensive large-scale, mass production CNC wire bending.
“Now, our customers don’t have to stop and setup a full-fledged production machine to bend out a few parts,” said Perry. “D.I.Wire PRO really opens up a world of new possibilities for fab shops, especially when combining it with other digital fabrication equipment.”
