Optima 3D, the UK based 3D weaving machine manufacturer, has announced the launch of its Optima Series 500 3D weaving machines. Optima 3D has designed and developed this range of “next generation” weaving machines, for the rapidly developing 3D composite engineering market.

The Series 500 range has been designed to offer 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 shuttle system, the company reports.

Prototype machine trials including field testing have now been completed, and the first production machine, an Optima 500/150/1, is in the final stages of commissioning prior to its public debut at ITMA 2019, Barcelona.

“Our vision for designing and creating the new Series 500 was to look with a fresh pair of eyes at 3D weaving machine technology; to produce a machine that delivers real benefits to our customers, a machine that is simply better by design,” commented Peter Bryant, Optima 3D’s Chairman.

“This has resulted in the Series 500, 3D weaving machine which can cost effectively deliver both high quality and consistency. We are passionate about using cutting edge technology to enhance our machine and produce the best results for customers.”
