Electrospinning tools are completely automatized devices for fiber fabrication via electrospinning technique and others. Their design and programmable software allow to control and automatize every parameter with high accuracy and reproducibility. These tools are used to obtain micro and nanometric fibers for multiple applications such as biomedical coatings, tissue engineering and many other kind of smart coatings.
Nadetech ND-ES Lab Electrospinning Unit is a completely automatized equipment for fiber fabrication via electrospinning technique. Its design and programmable software allows to control and automatize every electrospinning parameter with high accuracy and reproducibility. ND-ES Lab Electrospinning Unit is used to obtain nanometric fibers for multiple applications such as biomedical coatings and all kind of smart coatings.
Endless range of exciting applications for 2D and 3D ultrafine-fiber polymer composites with tunable porosity, controllable fiber thickness, high specific surface area, functional capacity and customed morphology.
Electrospinning consists on the deposition of fibers on a substrate through the application of a high voltage between a polymer solution and the sample. The polymer solution, usually disposed inside a syringe with a specific needle gauge, forms a jet driven by the electrostatic potential and is deposited on the substrate, that is connected to 0 potential (ground). The thickness of the resulting fibers can vary from the micrometer to a few nanometers. The thickness depends on some variables that must be precisely controlled in order to obtain a satisfactory coating.
The most important factors of the electrospinning process are the nature and viscosity of the solution, the applied voltage, the collector distance, the flow rate, the syringe gauge and the time of deposition. Rotatory collectors are also used to obtain coherent fiber directions.
