UK based 3D weaving machine manufacturer, Optima 3D, has launched a new range of weaving machines for 3D composite engineering.

The Optima Series 500 range reportedly offers improved features compared to conventional products due to its digital control systems, which allow rapid parameter and sequence changes coupled with a patent pending shuttle system.

The machines can produce woven net shapes, billets and para beams for composite applications, the company says, for a range of engineering sectors including aerospace, military, bio-medical and automotive. They are suitable for both production and R&D purposes.
