If you enjoy creating new things you might be interested in a new machine called the DIWire Wire Bender which has been created to enable you to bend wire to your exact specifications.
The innovative DIWire Wire Bender is the very first CNC wire bending machine that can be used on a desktop and has been design to transform drawn curves into bent wire that can be assembled to make just about anything. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the DIWire Wire Bender project and see it in action.
The DIWire Wire Bender machine has been created by Pensa Labs and the build volume is limited only by the length of the wire. Pensa Labs explains that currently :
“nothing exists that converts lines into bent rod, wire or tubular forms quickly, accurately, and repeatably. The DIWire can bend various metals and plastics, allowing for the output to be used as the final product.
By being transportable, accessible and affordable, the DIWire fills the market gap between time-consuming hand-bending and large scale, mass production CNC wire bending, which is too expensive for custom, short-run productions. This changes the dynamics of STEM education, as well as local, mass customized, prototype and just-in-time manufacturing for industries ranging from aerospace, automotive, medical, to consumer products.”
The DIWire Wire Bender project is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think the DIWire Wire Bender is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help DIWire become a reality.
