In cooperation with German research during the last five years a centrifuge spinning installation was developed which provides a quantum leap in nanofiber technology.
The new line type not only represents the first commercially available nanofiber line made in Germany on a production scale, but also sets the standard for international comparison. For having opened up a new chapter in the nanofiber production technology the line received the Techtextil innovation award in 2009.
Due to the high productivity and the low maintenance requirements and based upon a compact and price effective execution this type of line will push forward the use of nanofibers in filtration, medical technology and in other areas, where new materials are in demand.
Centrifuge spinning lines with only three spinning heads provide a throughput which is 1000 times higher compared to a conventional electro-spinning installation with more than 30,000 spinning nozzles. Independent of system size, all systems from pilot to production scale incorporate the same technological advantages. For customer trials and for product developments a laboratory unit as well as a pilot line with 1m working width are available.
