Lab nanofiber electrospinning machine is a bench-top electrospinning system with double spinning and yarning function that is known as one of the most efficient, convenient methods to produce fibers of a nanometric scale.Nanofibers are utilized in a wide variety of applications such as filtration and multifunctional membranes, medical usages, and military systems due to their outstanding properties.
Lab nanofiber electrospinning machine comprises of a bipolar high voltage supply and a set of collectors for different applications. The instrument also equips with a unique rotary collector through which user will be able to spin the fiber into threads and collect it in spools. The diameter of the fiber depends on various parameters but mainly flow rate. In order to make fiber in to yarn, two syringe pumps, one with positively charged spinneret and the other with negatively charged spinneret, are targeted to a funnel shaped collector from where fiber yarns are formed and rolled into spool.
Lab nanofiber electrospinning machine is a system for producing the ultrafine fiber with the diameter of 20 - 1000 nm. The nanofiber has a high specific surface area, small diameter, and large porosity. There are more than 100 kinds of polymers could be used as raw materials, and also protein, collagen, organics (PEO, DNA, PAA, PLA, nylon, polyester, acryl resin, PVA, PS, PAN, peptide, cellulose).

Metal Funnel Collector and Yarn Spool
• Metal funnel collector is a funnel shaped rotating mandrel where fiber yarns are formed and rolled into spool. A thin film web of nanofiber is first formed on a metal funnel collector and is drawn initially to a 3D cone shape. With the rotation of funnel collector, a twisted nanofiber yarn is drawn from the vertex of the cone.
