Optima 3D, the UK based 3D weaving machine manufacturer, has announced it will hold a VIP Weave Demonstration event to showcase its Optima Series 500 3D weaving machinery. The event takes place from the 25-28 February 2020 (10.00-16.00 hours) at the company’s Huddersfield, United Kingdom, facility.

Optima 3D designed and developed its ‘next generation’ weaving machines, for the rapidly developing 3D composite engineering market and will showcase the machines’ capability at the event.

“The Series 500 range offers many advanced features over conventional offerings particularly in versatility, operation and control. This has been achieved by the comprehensive use of digital control systems allowing rapid parameter and sequence changes coupled with an innovative patent pending shuttle system,” the company said in a statement today.

“Optima 3D machines feature innovative technology, and offer exceptional versatility, capable of producing high quality woven net shapes, billets and para beams for  composite applications, allowing use of the highly durable composite products in several engineering sectors including aerospace, military, bio-medical and automotive.”

“Powered and controlled by cutting edge digital technology, each machine allows automatic control plus touch screen management of all machine settings also enabling pattern and machine data to be stored and printed, vital for industry accreditation regarding quality assurance and safety regulations,” the company adds.

 “The Optima approach allows users a greater flexibility in their component design than ever before, making the Series 500 suitable for both production and R&D purposes. The compact Optima design allows a complete 3D weaving system to be easily installed; equally, it’s extremely competitive price now makes a complete R&D 3D weaving system significantly more attainable,” Optima 3D concludes.
