Elmarco and ITRI, Taiwan cooperate closely for the commercialization program of Nanofibers for various applications
Elmarco, the world recognized producer of machines for industrial scale nanofiber production, and Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) in Taiwan announced that both parties will work very closely in order to speed up the commercialization of various nanofiber integrated products into the market.
Elmarco and ITRI held a technical seminar about application research of nanofiber technology on February 18, 2011 at ITRI campus in Hsinchu City, Taiwan. The invited audience included many professionals from both industrial and academic fields in Taiwan.
The latest development in nanofiber research and the wide range of applications were discussed and shared by all attendees. The seminar included a demo of Elmarco‘s NS Lab equipment, which enables nanofiber material research and development activities using the cutting edge Nanospider™ production technology.
ITRI further decided to introduce Elmarco‘s NS Production Line 1000, in order to speed up research programs as well as technology transfer to its industrial partners for their commercialization programs.
Elmarco‘s NS Production Line 1000 is one of the latest models optimized for non water soluble polymers such as PA6, PAN, PES or PVDF. The production line was installed at ITRI research center in Hsinchu City in September 2011. This will allow nanofibers to be produced on an industrial scale for a number of applications.
"We are very pleased that ITRI has chosen Elmarco as the equipment supplier for its program for commercialization of nanofiber related products into the market. We believe that this relationship will lead to a quick and successful commercialization program in Taiwan," said Kaz Nomoto, President & CEO of Elmarco Ltd.
