latest technology

Entec offers two different filament winding control systems, WiMaX III and Siemens® Sinumerik. Each system offers different features, depending on what your company requires.

WiMaX III enhances the ease of use and improves the movement toward fully automated composite part fabrication. WiMaX III is backward compatible with Entec's earlier versions of WiMaX and Hyperchain.
