Computer Controlled Drum Electro-spinner

An electrospinner is a machine normally used to create micro/nano-scale fibres. This is performed by exploiting an electric force generated by a large potential difference. This causes either solutions or molten material to be stretched and pulled from the 'emitter' to the 'collector'. The collected fibres will be orientated in a random distribution, however, by turning the collector into a drum and rotating the drum at high speed the fibres will become more aligned.

Random orientated fibres collected at 0 RPM

Aligned fibres collected at 3500 RPM
