Elmarco, based in Liberec, Czech Republic claims to be the world’s first company—and the only company—to manufacture machines for the mass production of nanofibres. The machines are called “Nanospider” and come in two versions: a laboratory-scale version and an industrial-scale version.

A key element of Elmarco’s business strategy is to cooperate closely with technology companies, technical universities, other educational institutions and non-government research organisations. Notable educational institutions with which Elmarco cooperates include the Technical University of Liberec (TUL), where the Nanospider was invented, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and North Carolina State University (NCSU).

Nanospider machines use electrospinning to produce nanofibres. These fibres can be used to manufacture materials for a wide variety of applications, including: air and liquid filtration; sound absorption; medical textiles for wound dressings, tissue engineering and drug delivery; personal diapers, napkins and wipes; cosmetic textiles; protective garments; and reinforced composite materials such as plastics, metals, ceramics, thermal insulation composites and biocomposites.

For the future, Elmarco has plans to expand by building a new production facility in Liberec. This will house its research and development business unit, a pilot plant and a showroom. The company may also consider mass production of nanofibres, in addition to supplying the machinery which produces them.
