Our Approach

Better by Design

Optima has been established with the primary objective of developing new methods of achieving 3D weaving.

The traditional approach to 3D weaving has been to modify older 2D technology, however Optima has embraced technical developments in machine control systems and has designed and developed a next generation of 3D weaving machines which offer very significant advantages.
In particular the Optima design* offers a much more flexible weaving capability, with excellent operator controls; couped to automatic systems for quality assurance and repeatability.
In addition the compact design enables much easier installation and integration into weaving processes.
Optima recognise that 3D weaving is still in its infancy in terms of both design and deployment. We will continue to develop our design philosophy and welcome enquiries.
