The paper focuses on the problematic of coaxial electrospinning with a wire spinning electrode. Despite the wide usage of wire spinner in the industrial sector, only basic research has been made in the field of possible coaxial technology application. In the paper, the new concept of the wire spinner, reflecting the polymeric two-layer formation, is introduced. The design is supported by electrostatic analysis of the problem using FEM method. The manufactured testing device was experimentally verified and the results were evaluated. The electrospinning process stability and the final product were analysed and the potential of the application was discussed.Keywords: wire electrode, core/shell nanofibers, coaxial electrospinning, electrostatic analysis
