Nordson EFD Introduces New Automated Fluid-Dispensing System

Noria news wires

Nordson EFD recently introduced a new series of automated fluid-dispensing systems for streamlined integration into manufacturing operations.

The Pro Series has a smart vision camera that captures detailed component part images and converts them into high-resolution digital files. The vision system is integrated with EFD's new DispenseMotion software, which simplifies setup and facilitates programming with an on-screen preview of the dispensing path.

The dispense tip can be driven to the precise point needed. True three-dimensional motion control allows easy programming of dots, lines, circles, arcs, compound arcs and complex patterns.

The Pro4L Series also includes laser height sensing that detects height variations on the surface of a product and makes corrections to the dispensing height to prevent uneven deposits and tip or workpiece damage.

The new systems are specifically designed and configured for precise fluid dispensing using syringe barrel and valve systems. The platform sizes can handle a broad spectrum of applications and work as standalone systems or as part of an automated solution.

"Nordson EFD's new Pro Series automated dispensing system 'thinks,'" says Nordson EFD product manager Kelvin Fernandez. "Programming is going to be much faster because it's simple to learn and it's easier to visually see your dispensing path, as you set the parameters. And with the closed-loop system, it's constantly checking to make sure that your dispensing process stays in control."
