Discover what gives SNC the competitive edge
The SNC BEST® (Ball ElectroSpinning Technology) is our patented high-throughput nanofiber production platform.
Unlike traditional needle electrospinning where the number of jets is limited by the number of installed needles, the free-surface spinning nature of SNC BEST® allows jets to self-arrange and self-optimize, drastically increasing throughput.
Advantages vs. Needle Electrospinning
SNC BEST® offers several advantages over needle electrospinning:
No Needle Requirement:
Needles are prone to clogging, inconsistent flow, and limited control over fiber properties. SNC BEST® eliminates these problems by directly ejecting the polymer solution through a free liquid surface.
Enhanced Process Control:
Higher Production Rates:
SNC BEST® allows easy control over various process parameters such as flow rate and electric field strength, resulting in more precise control over fiber properties like diameter, alignment, and morphology.
SNC BEST® allows the jets to self-arrange and self-optimize, enabling faster polymer jet acceleration and increased fiber production
Versatility in Substrate Selection:
Since there is no needle involved, SNC BEST® allows for a wider range of collectors to be used, including non-conductive materials such as foils, papers, fabrics, or even rotating drum for diverse applications.
SNC BEST® has a much simpler setup than needle electrospinning systems which translates into easier experimentation and scalability.
Reduced Risk of Contamination:
Needle electrospinning systems may introduce impurities or metal ions into the polymer solution, which can affect the properties of the resulting fibers. SNC BEST® mitigates this concern, making it suitable for applications where purity is critical.
Ball Electrospinning in Action
Incorporating SNC BEST® (Ball ElectroSpinning Technology) within a multi-ball manufacturing machine allows for incredible production capability and scalability. The result? 100's of meters of nanofiber per day, with tailored nanofiber characteristics and ISO certified quality standards.
