Nordson EFD introduces new jet dispensing technology

Nordson EFD, a precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer, has introduced a new fast and accurate piezoelectric jetting technology.

EFD’s new Pico Pulse valve and Pico Touch controller make it possible to dispense exact, repeatable micro-deposits as small as 0.5nL at up to 500Hz continuous, with 1500Hz maximum bursts.

The Pico Pulse non-contact jet valve’s modular design makes it possible to jet low- to high-viscosity fluids onto any surface, including uneven and tough-to-reach substrates.

Exchangeable parts provide versatility, making the valve adaptable to a wide range of applications so it can meet changing production demands.

Its tool-free latch mechanism allows for easy removal of the fluid body for faster serviceability and maintenance, reducing downtime and increasing productivity.

The Pico Touch controller features an easy-to-use touch screen interface for controlling the Pulse valve.

Users can set precise operating parameters, such as ramp open and close and stroke control, to fine-tune dispensing performance.

Pulse time can be adjusted in increments as small as 0.01ms.

Better slope control delivers more repeatable deposits while preventing turbulence and air bubbles from entering the fluid, preventing deposit variation.
