A New Feeding Device of Electrospinning Design for the Micro-Structure of Bone Scaffold Prototyping
In order to solve the problem that bone cells can not adhere to the pore wall, the paper introduces a new method that combines RP method with electrostatic spinning method is used for the preparation of a comprehensive new bone scaffold technology, and pays close attention on the automatic control of process parameters, the feeding speed. According to the model of feed speed and the diameter of nano-fibers, a theoretical guidance is given to the real-time control of feed speed, and a new feeding device, including the configuration software iFIX, a microcontroller, a sensor and stepping motor, is presented. It can give a real-time effective control of the feed speed, which provides a theoretical and technological basis for the quality of scaffolds prototyping.
