Renishaw goes big on nanofiber (pdf)
To help with ongoing personal protective equipment (PPE) shortages, Ontario-based nanofiber manufacturer, BIG-nano, has collaborated with Renishaw to create a local supply chain for protective masks using additive manufacturing (AM). BIG-nano developed a fine liquid blowing technique for the production of nanofiber, allowing it to more easily scale production at affordable costs. Renishaw used one of its RenAM 500Q system located in Canada to build a novel titanium nozzle for the liquid blowing process, capable of producing N99 quality fabric, while reducing maintenance costs and downtime.
