Machine Control
McClean Anderson's Flexwind machine control system is a PC based system that makes filament winding simpler, faster and more accurate. Since the system is PC-based, users can develop and edit programs right at the control with SimWind part development software - even while winding!

Software
McClean Anderson's SimWind is an advanced offline software programming tool used for designing and modeling complex filament wound structures. During part program development, winding simulations can be rendered with ease, allowing the users to analyze a multitude of winding scenarios in a matter of seconds.
