WEAV3D to Participate in Upcoming Plug and Play Mobility Program

We’re excited to announce Plug and Play recently selected us to participate in its Mobility accelerator program, which focuses on emerging automotive technologies. The program recognizes the promise of our composite forming technology.

Lightweight, Cost-Effective Composites

Designed for high volume production, our composite forming machine processes continuous, fiber-reinforced thermoplastic tapes—allowing you to vary weave pattern, lattice density and tape-type and enabling complete control over part strength and stiffness.

We combine these lattice structures with injection molding or thermoforming processes—creating lightweight, stiff structural composites that cost as much as 50 percent less than carbon fiber composites formed using traditional methods.

Our structural composite technology is a good fit for the automotive industry, as it reduces weight while maintaining high-strength and -stiffness properties required by vehicle components. While automotive applications have been our initial focus, our technology applies more broadly to other structural composites applications as well.

About the Plug and Play Program

Plug and Play’s three-month business development programs—which also include Materials and Packaging, Energy, Sustainability, Construction and more—consist of various workshops, mentor meetings and networking events.

As part of the Winter 2019 program, we will graduate this December at the Plug and Play Winter Summit, where we’ll make an onstage pitch in front of over 500 investors and other industry leaders.
