29 March 2021: RTM-Worx 3.10 released!
With improved 3D rendering, more options for shaded & contour plots, the possibility to
add custom viscosity models and boundary conditions in SALT, better error reporting and
several other enhancements, version 3.10 is the best RTM-Worx ever!
8 July 2019: RTM-Worx 3.9 released!
The most important changes and additions were made to the interactive environment:
new commands in geometry (keypoint, curve, surface and region) editors, hit
testing & selection of regions by the mouse, and rotate and zoom now anchor at
the point under the mouse cursor. There have also been some enhancements to
SALT, primarily to support programming larger applications.
JEC World 2019, 12-14 March, booth 5E80
Polyworx is exhibiting in the Holland High Tech pavillion, Hall 5 - Booth E80.

of simulations in parallel, to make it possible to match models with feedback from
sensors in real-time, even for complex 3D problems.
12 February 2019: RTM-Worx 2019 released!
Some major changes have been made to support running multiple solvers
concurrently using the SALT threading library and RtwxLib. The new solver
not only scales better, but it uses less CPU resources and got faster too!
Other enhancements are an improved DDE interface with the RTM-Worx GUI
(to allow it to be remotely controlled from SALT scripts), and many
improvements to the SALT scripting language and libraries.

METS 2011, Amsterdam RAI, 15-16-17 November, 2011
Like last year, Polyworx will exhibit in booth nr. 11.539, in cooperation with
Brands Structural Products. If you are curious how we broke our own infusion record, how we managed to infuse a 62 meter
hull (8.5m high, 10m wide) in only two shots (14000 and 8000 kg/shot respectively) in two days
with continuous fibre reinforcement and a single bag, make sure you pay us a visit! This is the
kind of technology we can supply, but we also have solutions for smaller parts. With CVI you
can not only eliminate your technical (and financial!) risks, but it is possible to engineer
a solution which best suits your requirements in terms of labour, productivity, material and
equipment cost and we can calculate this up front. Our RTM-Worx flow analysis software, which
enables CVI, has been enhanced: new import facilities and several customized solutions
(implemented using our SALT technology).

METS 2010, Amsterdam RAI, 16-17-18 November, 2010
Polyworx will exhibit in booth nr. 11.539 , in cooperation with
Brands Structural Products. RMK in Tuzla, Istanbul, Turkey established a world record in April this year: infusion of 6.3 tonnes of
vinylester resin in a single shot for the Oyster 125' hull and we developed the technology to make it work!
First time right and due to the experience that RMK built up with infusions for the Oyster 100', it was not
only the largest, but also simply the best infusion they have done. We have also infused two North-Line 42'
hulls for Jachtbouw Zevenhuizen, not just a sandwich, but with all the stiffeners included in a single shot,
saving two weeks time in the mould. Pay us a visit if you want to be at the leading edge of infusion
technology as well and are interested in doing so with our support to eliminate your risks, either by
licensing our flow simulation software (with proven accuracy, so it can replace all your in-mould trials
by injections on screen) or using our consultancy services. If you still need to decide whether infusion
is a feasible technology for your project, or if you are building a large yacht and have to choose between
aluminium or composite, we can offer you a free cost estimate that includes labour and materials.
Or if you are just curious what is going on: we are in booth nr. 11.539 and will be happy to tell
you all about it!
JEC Composites Show 2010, Paris Expo, 13-15 April, 2010
Polyworx will exhibit at the JEC Composites Show, booth nr. N82. We finished the core
of our new SALT platform for high level scripting in RTM-Worx! In addition, we have been quite
busy redefining the meaning of 'large infusions', with the Oyster 100' and 125' projects (check
out the Oyster 100' infusion pictures )
and developed a technology to infuse structures of more than 6 meters high in multiple shots
without removing the bag! Want to know more? Pay us a visit in booth N82.
METS 2009, Amsterdam RAI, 17-18-19 November, 2009
Polyworx will exhibit in booth nr. 01.404, in cooperation with

show pictures now from the infusion of the Oyster 100' hull (3600 kg) and deck (1250 kg),
a project we are doing for RMK in Tuzla, Turkey. Not only large boats, but also smaller boats
can be done economically with infusion. We developed a calculation method that allows us to make
close estimates of the material cost and manhours for an infusion project. If you
want to be up to date with state of the art in infusion technology, make sure you pay us a visit!

Brands Structural Products. CVI technology enables infusion of large complex structures, and the largest parts that
have been infused worldwide, have been done with our technology. We are developing a new
system to infuse moulds in cooperation with several material suppliers. Because the demands
on moulds are even higher than the requirements for the parts made with it, it only makes
sense to build the molds with the best technology for composites construction available!
Just pay us a visit in booth nr. 01.603, or send us an email for more information.

a very nice example what can be done with the combination of RTM-Worx and the MSC Laminate Modeler;
- Infusion of several yacht hulls and decks: Standfast 43' (carbon/epoxy), Prinz 40' fly (glass/polyester sandwich),
Classicon Yachts 20 meter powerboat hull (glass/epoxy) and more!
More about those projects will be added to the website in the near future. In the meantime,

Prediction of Product Properties
At the JEC Composites Show in Paris, April 2003, MSC Software and Polyworx
have presented a new software solution that allows you to decrease costs and increase the accuracy of your parts!
- Import the model created in MSC Laminate Modeler in RTM-Worx to save lots of time and take the
fabric deformation into account (as it will change fabric porosity and permeability);
- Export results from the RTM-Worx temperature & curing analysis to MSC Nastran for accurate prediction
of deformation due to thermal stresses! This very powerful capability does not just give you the ability
to predict springback, but also to study the effect of process parameters and increase the accuracy of your parts!
Anaglyph has launched the new Laminate Tools (LT) 2.0.
Using LT in combination with RTM-Worx greatly enhances the communication with other engineering software packages.

Black Metal or Black Art? 2003
A Review of Virtual Product Development Techniques for Composite Materials & Components
Wednesday, March 12, 2003
Williams F1 Conference Centre, Grove, Oxon, UK
Hosted by MSC.Software, "Black Metal or Black Art? 2003" is a free technology seminar designed to
provide a state of the art review of virtual product development techniques for composite materials and
components. Polyworx will contribute with a presentation of the advanced process simulation that is
possible with the combination of the MSC Laminate Modeler and the Polyworx RTM-Worx software, which
will be illustrated with applications in boatbuilding (the Maxi Jena 80' carbon/epoxy racer) and
vacuum infusion of wind turbine rotorblades by LM Flasfiber A/S, Denmark.

Controlled Vacuum Infusion Technology
Because we provide software tools for new technologies, it is very important that we have knowledge of
the injection process itself: it is the most important component of our support. From there, it is a very small step
to actually implement the technology for our customers. This is exactly what recently happened with the
Controlled Vacuum Infusion technology. Right now, we are doing several projects, which range from extended
support in combination with a (temporary) license to the implementation of the technology to produce large
composite parts (epoxy, polyester, vinylester resins and glass, carbon and kevlar reinforcement) - which
includes knowledge transfer, testing of materials, measuring the permeability of the reinforcement, assistance
with acquisition of equipment and materials, developing the infusion strategy and coordination of the
