Fibre printing

3D fibre printing

We develop and manufacture 3D printers that print many nano and micro filaments instead of a single filament. Such modification of traditional 3D printing technique requires specific know-how of creating high-voltage electrostatic field which turns polymers to nano and microfilaments.

Fibrous design of scaffolds mimics functional structures of extracellular matrixes and provides unmatched porosity, and nano- and micrometer-scaled topologies. Functionalized nano-/microstructured materials have potential in numerous biomedical applications including wound dressing, tissue engineering, drug delivery, bioactive molecules immobilization, and separation.

Fibre-made materials are competitive in price, technology is characterized by the optimum energy consumption and is environment-friendly (no hazardous waste or emissions are produced during the process).

Customized electrospinning

A novel processing technique to produce fibrous nano and micro structures from polymer melts and solutions.
Produced structures have controlled fibre diameter (100 nm to 100 µm), large surface area and high porosity. A broad range of polymers can be used as raw materials.
