Electrospinning is a delicate process in which material properties, electric field strength, flow rates and other parameters need to be balanced to achieve optimal results. Moreover, the ambient temperature and relative humidity have a significant impact on the process. In our quest for process control and reproducibility, IME Technologies provides a climate-controlled electrospinning machine. This is shown in the following publication:

Putti, M., Simonet, M., Solberg, R., & Peters, G. W. M. (2015). Electrospinning poly(ε-caprolactone) under controlled environmental conditions: Influence on fiber morphology and orientation. Polymer, 63, 189–195. DOI: 10.1016/j.polymer.2015.03.006
