Innovative products, superior quality, experienced technical support and on-time delivery have made Nordson EFD the recognized leader in precision fluid dispensing technology. In today’s competitive global environment where products are becoming ever smaller and more complex, manufacturers are constantly challenged with finding new ways to apply the adhesives and other fluids used to build them with greater precision and at faster speeds.
With extensive experience in hundreds of industries, EFD is meeting these challenges through a combination of innovative new products and enhancements to our existing dispensing technologies
Two recent examples are the UltimusTM V high precision dispenser and the OptimeterTM.
Many modern manufacturing processes involve 2-part epoxies or other fluids that change viscosity. Keeping the amount of fluid applied consistent as it gets thicker or thinner, or as the volume of fluid in the syringe reservoir decreases, is often critical to maintaining output and product quality. EFD’s Ultimus V and Optimeter resolve both these issues.
For fluids that change viscosity, the Ultimus V dispenser provides the ability to store and then automatically adjust dispensing parameters to keep the amount of fluid applied constant as it gets thicker or thinner
Once the fluid curve has been programmed into the Ultimus V dispenser’s memory cells, air pressure will automatically adjust after a set time interval or number of shots to keep the size of the fluid deposit uniform as the viscosity of the material changes. Electronic control of dispense time, air pressure and vacuum, along with digital display of all dispenser settings, brings exceptional accuracy and process control to critical tabletop and automated dispensing applications.
When using thinner fluids, the patent pending Optimeter is specifically engineered to work with the Ultimus V dispenser to provide an even greater level of control. Used in place of a standard syringe barrel adapter, the Optimeter features a unique design with a tapered pin that ensures consistent shots by automatically increasing air flow as the volume of material in the syringe barrel decreases.
In keeping with EFD’s commitment to the global manufacturing community, users have the option of displaying menus and prompts in English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean or Spanish, and setting the dispensing parameters for each job in standard, metric or SI units.
EFD product lines include air-powered and positive displacement dispensers for applying controlled amounts of adhesives, lubricants and other fluids during benchtop assembly processes; low-maintenance dispense valves for automated production lines; and disposable syringe barrels, pistons and tips engineered to provide maximum fluid control with no drip, mess or residual waste. Other products include solder pastes for electromechanical and surface mount assembly, XYZ dispensing systems for automated tabletop processes and Nordson EFD is the world’s leading manufacturer of precision dispensing systems and disposable components for applying controlled amounts of the adhesives, sealants, lubricants and other assembly fluids used in almost every manufacturing process.
Since 1963 EFD has been providing quality products, experienced technical support and superior customer service to thousands of companies throughout the world.
When manufacturers are able to put the same amount of fluid in the same place every time, they gain a competitive advantage through:
• Higher yields
• Greater process control
• Better product quality and reliability
• Less waste and rework, fewer rejects
• Lower production costs
Sales and service of Nordson EFD products are available in more than 30 countries
