Wet spinning line

Together with Deakin University, we jointly invested in Australia’s only research pilot scale wet spinning line. The “SSOLVE Mini” machine was developed by MAE S.p.A., Italy, to our specifications and is capacity-matched to the Carbon Nexus research scale carbonisation line. The wet-spinning line is capable of a range of flexible operations, including the following:

  • Wet-spinning
  • Air-gap spinning
  • Bi-component spinning, with two separate temperature-controlled dope mixers and twin spin-pumps
  • Capable of utilising a range of solvents including DMSO, DMF, DMAC and NaSCN
  • Precursor filament counts up to 500 filaments
  • Steam stretching and relaxing
  • Fully configurable washing and stretching baths with automated concentration control
