Electrically heated small-scale spinning machine used for proof-of-principle (PoP) experiments.
This equipment is ideal for exploring the ‘spinnability’ of polymers. Also it allows users to get first fiber samples to analyze properties to get a feeling of the potential.
Different types of screws are available in order to process different kinds of polymers. Extrusion temperatures up to 400 °C can be used. Performance polymers like PEEK have successfully been spun on this machine.
Round spinneret Ø60 mm. with 1 – 100 holes in various sizes. Throughput maximum 2,5 kg/hours. Winding speed usually up to 350 m/min, but the spinning machine can be adapted in order to run up to 2000 m/min.
