Abstract:
Global Engineering Society Places Nanofiber Technology on Prestigious List

Society of Manufacturing Engineers Recognizes Local FibeRio Technology

Edinburg, TX | Posted on March 20th, 2010

In its most recent publication of Manufacturing Engineering magazine, the Society of Manufacturing
Engineers recognized the implications of Forcespinning Technology™ to the fabrication of nanofibers by placing it on its list of "Innovations That Could Change The Way You Manufacture." FibeRio Technology Corporation's ForceSpinning™ technology is a revolutionary alternative to the incumbent nanofiber manufacturing process, eliminating safety concerns, reducing usage of corrosive solvents and dramatically reducing manufacturing costs.

The list is compiled through an extensive validation process by the SME's Innovation Watch Committee, a diverse and respected group of manufacturing professionals. New manufacturing technologies and processes are chosen for their cost savings, efficiency, and green manufacturing components, all of which apply to Forcespinning Technology™.

Forcespinning Technology™ utilizes centrifugal force to spin nonwoven fibers with nano scale diameters. This is a disruptive shift away from the use of electrostatic force, which is fundamental to the incumbent technology called electrospinning. Without electrostatic force, an entire new realm of possibilities opens up. Metals and conductive polymers as well as polymers that already have commercial biomedical and filtration applications can be processed in high yields simply and safely. Forcespinning Technology™ operates with very high performance in melt spinning and with substantially higher concentration levels in solution spinning, which dramatically increases yields and reduces cost.

FibeRio Technology Corporation ­ The Force For Nanofibers ­ is transforming the materials market by incorporating Forcespinning Technology™ into equipment and manufacturing processes that will provide researchers with versatile production capabilities for ground breaking research and provide the nonwovens industry with dramatically increased system level production capacities that will escalate the commercialization of nanofiber applications.

Nanofibers have very high surface area and superior mechanical properties compared to traditional microfibers. Current applications include dust and liquid filtration as well as medical wound care. Extensive research is underway to broaden the range of applications into tissue engineering, drug delivery, energy storage, and aerospace materials.
