NewSkin partner ALPhANOV’s Girolamo Mincuzzi has written a nice article in issue 105 of The Laser User on the use of ultra-short pulse (USP) lasers for upscaling the nanotexturing process. In the article Girolamo describes two pilot lines available in ALPhANOV’s facilities for nanotexturing, one for large surfaces with high throughput (on roll-to-roll) and the other for nano-texturing an injection mould used for polymers – in his example the moulds were for producing plastic reservoirs with anti-bacterial qualities for dishwashers. These facilities are making significant steps towards mass production of nanotextured surfaces which will open the way for the manufacturing of nanotextured products.
