- Needleless electrospinning is expected to produce nanofibers with a large productivity. In this study, a sprocket wheel disk was used as spinneret to electrospin nanofibers. The sprocket disk shows reliable electrospinning process. In comparison with the conventional disk spinneret, which has no sprocket on the edge, the sprocket wheel produced more uniform nanofibers with smaller fiber diameter. The electric field analysis results indicated that the sprocket wheel generates higher intensity of electric field.
