The EU-funded NewSkin Open Innovation Test Bed project is offering unique pilot scale prototyping, upscaling, and testing facilities as well as route to market services, and access to investors, to SMEs, Research labs and industry to accelerate the commercialisation of innovative nano-surface and membrane materials and technology across Europe.

As part of the NewSkin upscaling facilities, the AIMEN team are using a laser fibre designed to guide ultrashort laser pulses, combined with a high precision 5 axes positioning system – which allows the fabrication of different textures on 3D samples, such as the cylindrical rolls used in roll-to-roll thermal imprinting. The upgrade of the roll-to-roll facility, particularly the increased width of the web that can be coated and/or textured, promotes the fabrication of functional polymeric surfaces with tailored properties.

You can apply for free access to this and other NewSkin Open Innovation Test Bed facilities through NewSkin OITB Open Call 2, with deadline on 29th July 2022, more details on the services available on platform.NewSkin-OITB.eu 

The NewSkin services offered are expected to speed-up the launch of novel nanomaterials and membranes, and commercial or personal products using these advanced materials, to boost efficiency and to support industry, especially SMEs, in better and faster development of their products.
