Developed in the lab, ready for real life

Patented needle-free Nanospider™ technology

Nanospider™ technology is a unique electrospinning method utilizing the free surface of a polymer solution‑coated electrode in a strong electrostatic field. This technology makes it possible to produce nanofibrous material at the uniformity and throughput suitable for industrial scale manufacturing.

Nanospider™ technology uses an electrospinning electrode in the shape of a thin wire and a head to apply a polymer solution along the entire length of the wire. Nanofibers are then formed from a thin layer of polymer on the electrode under the influence of a strong electrical field.

For use in the laboratory and on an industrial scale

Based on Nanospider™ technology, we have developed two product lines for industrial use, which are also complemented by laboratory equipment for nanofiber research and development.

Laboratory equipment for efficient research of nanofibrous membranes and experimental work.

LABORATORY EQUIPMENT

Technology for defect‑free nanomaterial production for applications such as liquid filtration, HEPA filtration or battery separators.

THE INFINITY LINE

UUniversal technology for nanomaterial production used in a wide range of applications such as air filtration, performance apparel, and healthcare.

INTRODUCING THE NEW INFINITY LINE

Our lines peripherals

Air conditioning unit

  • the air conditioner sets ideal conditions inside the electrospinning chamber
  • serves for precise control of process humidity and temperature for producing nanofibers
MORE ABOUT AIR CONDITIONING UNITS

Adhesion module

  • this ensures that the layer of nanofibers applied to the substrate will adhere without delamination failures
  • used for applying liquid dispersion adhesives to various base materials with smooth and structured surfaces

Hot air dryer

  • ensures additional drying of the produced nanomaterial
  • layers of nanofibers leave the electrospinning unit with some residual moisture or solvent content, and for this reason the layer must be properly dried before winding

Winding and unwinding

  • both the unwinder and winder form steel frames with motors that drive the unwinding and winding pneumatic shafts
  • the device enables two-way rewinding of the underlying material.

We provide the equipment through an external supplier.

Polymer mixing station

  • prepares solutions of polymers suitable for electrospinning
  • it consists of a mixer, a cabinet with a heating and cooling unit, an accumulation tank and a connection point
  • the operation is almost fully automated, except solid polymers must be added manually through a funnel

TEXTEST measuring device

  • used for continuous measurement of air permeability, pressure drop, and airflow resistance on moving materials.
  • the measurement takes place in real time, and a comprehensive protocol is generated after its completion

We provide the equipment through an external supplier.
