Electrospinning unit (Deposition on collector with movement on X,Y, Z axis; 0-25 kV)

Location: Laboratory of Electrospinning and Mechanical Testing
Responsible: João Canejo

The electrospinning system is a home-made apparatus designed for the deposition of non-woven membranes from polymeric solutions. This apparatus uses a computerized system to control the position of the target, allowing the correction of the target position during deposition. The software allows the programing of movements of the target in the X, Y and Z axis. This equipment is very versatile and can be used for the deposition of non-woven membranes with, or without, preferential alignment of the fibers.
•    Maximum deposition area: 30 x 30 cm
•    Power supply: 0 – 30 kV
