HIFYBER nanofibers to be produced using Elmarco Nanospider™ technology
Turkey-based manufacturer Abalioglu Teknoloji built its nanofiber production capability using Elmarco’s industrial Nanospider™ equipment. Elmarco supplied
1,6 m production line with a complete set of peripherals for high volume roll-to-roll operation. The technology enables Abalioglu Teknoloji to enter the market and to deliver high performance nanofibers under their own brand HIFYBER.
Abalioglu Teknoloji is an innovative company that specializes in providing nanofiber products. “On top of Elmarco’s unique Nanospider™ technology, our 7 years of expertise and know-how in nanofiber technology delivers outstanding features such as narrow fiber diameter distribution, controlled pore size and superior adhesion, thus numerous industries can benefit from our HIFYBER materials,” says Ozdemir Aydin, Abalioglu Teknoloji General Manager.
Air filtration, liquid filtration, medical applications and also outdoor sportswear membranes can be found in the company’s focus. “Besides our focus applications we produce HIFYBER materials as tailored nanofiber products to meet customer’s specific requirements,” says Cagri Tekmen, Business Development Manager.
The nanofiber production line is based on Elmarco’s NS 8S1600U, industrial operation proven spinning unit. The unit uses needle-free electrospinning Nanospider™ technology that is designed for high volume production with long time shifts in roll-to-roll operation.
“We delivered a complete 1.6 m technology for nanofiber production, to ensure customer’s need for industrial operation and to prove our turn-key delivery capability,” says Miloslav Masopust, Managing Director, Elmarco Czech Republic. Elmarco’s turn-key nanofiber production line included adhesion treatment and Nanospider™ air conditioning unit which
are necessary for fine fiber manufacturing.
Cooperation between Abalioglu Teknoloji and Elmarco brought not only the first industrial nanofiber technology in Turkey, but also improved availability of nanofiber materials on
