Engadget Expand NY 2014: Pensa Labs



Pensa Labs, maker of the first desktop CNC wire bender, began shipping its first production units today. After funding a $100,000 Kickstarter campaign in one day, Pensa Labs got to work immediately on manufacturing the best possible machine for an eager “Maker” community.

“We are on a mission to put a desktop wire bender in every fab lab in America”, said Marco Perry, co-founder of Pensa Labs. “We beta tested our units in a range of applications – rapid prototyping, short-run production, model making – and applied all of what we learned into our first-run production units.”

DIWire is the first desktop CNC wire bender. A new archetype for desktop manufacturing and rapid prototyping, DIWire transforms drawn curves into bent wire that can be assembled to make just about anything. Its fast and accurate output has allowed users to make antennas, jewelry, architectural models, design prototypes, furniture, lighting, robots, and signage.

“It’s an entirely new form of desktop manufacturing and fills the market gap between time consuming hand-bending and large scale production,” said Chris Abbruzzese, Director of Sales for DIWire. “We are finding that this is a solution that engineers, designers, and makers have been waiting for.”
