EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nordson EFD, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN) and leading precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer, introduces a new Better Dispensing™ How-To Video series. These three highly educational videos presented by EFD application specialist, Tom Muccino, provide best practices for choosing between contact dispensing and non-contact (jet) dispensing, and how to select the best jetting valve for a manufacturing application.
“One of the main differences is that with jetting, your valve never touches the surface of the part. Instead, your fluid “flies” or “jets” out of the valve, which is above the part,” Muccino explains in the first video. “This makes jetting perfect for fragile or complex parts.”
Nordson EFD provides a wide range of contact and non-contact (jetting) valve systems to manufacturers. While contact dispensing valves provide more versatility in terms of the range of fluids that can be dispensed, jetting systems open the door to faster dispensing up to 1000Hz (deposits per second). Knowing which is best for an application can influence production time and accuracy.
After identifying if jet dispensing is right for an application, videos two and three explain the technologies offered. Nordson EFD offers both pneumatic and piezoelectric jetting valves.
Here is a brief outline of the Better Dispensing videos:
- The first video advises when users would choose contact dispensing or jet dispensing based on an application.
- The second video describes two types of jetting technology: pieozoelectric and pneumatic, and how to choose between them.
- The third video looks into the differences between two types of piezoelectric valves including the new PICO® XP jetting system, which is designed to maintain consistent micro-dispensing results regardless of changes in temperature during high volume manufacturing applications.
These new Better Dispensing How-To videos are the fourth series of educational videos from Nordson EFD. The goal is to provide best practices to help manufacturers improve dispensing processes to achieve greater throughput while reducing rejects, rework, and fluid waste.
