More Than 3 Times Faster Than Previous Models, Nordson EFD's Enhanced PICO Valves Will Help Manufacturers Increase Production, Improve Quality And Reduce Costs. (Photo: Business Wire)

Nordson EFD, a Nordson company (Nasdaq: NDSN), announces that they have more than tripled the speed of their PICO™ series jet dispensing systems—from 150Hz (cycles per second) up to an industry-leading continuous 500Hz, making the new and improved versions the fastest piezoelectric valves available to the global manufacturing community.

“Making our proven PICO valve technology even faster is the latest demonstration of our 50 years of commitment to developing innovative dispensing technologies that help our customers build their own products better, faster and more cost-effectively,” according to Ken Forden, Nordson EFD’s Vice President and General Manager. “The fact that the enhanced PICO valves can run continuously at such high speed will enable manufacturers to produce much more product in much less time.”

PICO systems use piezoelectric jetting technology to apply adhesives, lubricants and other assembly fluids with exceptional speed, in amounts as small as 2 nanoliters. Because PICO jet valves do not contact the substrate, they are ideal for applying precise amounts of fluid on uneven surfaces or products with small components, tight tolerances or hard-to-access areas, such as today’s mobile handsets and medical devices.

Nordson EFD’s newly enhanced PICO valves will be introduced in Booth East 48-11 at INTERNEPCON Japan, which will be held at the Tokyo Big Sight, January 16-18.

Nordson EFD designs and manufactures precision fluid dispensing systems for benchtop assembly processes and automated assembly lines. By enabling manufacturers to apply the same amount of adhesive, lubricant or other assembly fluid to every part, every time, EFD dispensing systems are helping companies in a wide variety of industries increase throughput, improve quality, and lower their production costs. Other fluid management capabilities include high-quality syringe barrels and cartridges for packaging one- and two-component materials, along with a wide variety of fittings, couplers and connectors for controlling fluid flow in medical, biopharmaceutical and industrial environments. The company is also a leading formulator of specialty solder pastes for dispensing and printing applications in the electronics industry.

Nordson Corporation (Nasdaq: NDSN) delivers precision technology solutions to help customers succeed worldwide. The company engineers, manufactures and markets differentiated products and systems used for dispensing adhesives, coatings, sealants, biomaterials and other materials, fluid management, test and inspection, UV curing and plasma surface treatment, all supported by application expertise and direct global sales and service. Nordson serves a wide variety of consumer non-durable, durable and technology end markets including packaging, nonwovens, electronics, medical, appliances, energy, transportation, construction, and general product assembly and finishing. Founded in 1954 and headquartered in Westlake, Ohio, the company has operations and support offices in more than 30 countries.
