August 28, 2013 - Suited for non-contact and contact needle dispensing of assembly fluids, PICOŽ xMOD™ Valve uses piezoelectric actuation technology for continuous operation at speeds of up to 500 cycles/sec. Deposits as small as 2 nL can be produced accurately at production speeds, and non-contact jet valve makes it possible to apply fluid in hard-to-access areas or onto uneven or delicate substrates. All 5 major components can be removed and exchanged within seconds, eliminating production downtime.

Nordson EFD's PICO xMOD Exchangeable/Modular Dispensing Valve Improves Productivity and Reduces Cost

Press release date: August 26, 2013

East Providence, RI USA -- Nordson EFD, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN), introduces the PICOŽ xMOD™ Valve, a new and exciting fully exchangeable and modular concept in non-contact and contact needle dispensing of assembly fluids.

Nordson EFD's PICO xMOD valve system technology uses high-tech, robust, durable piezoelectric actuation technology for continuous operation at speeds of up to 500 cycles/second. The PICO xMOD can produce deposits as small as 2 nanoliters, at high production speeds, with exceptional deposit accuracy and superior process control. The non-contact jet valve makes it possible to apply fluid in hard-to-access areas or onto uneven or delicate substrates for applications in electronics, automotive, life sciences, solar, and a range of other industrial dispensing applications.

All five major xMOD valve components - the Piezo Actuator (PA), the Valve Seat (VS), the Fluid Body (FB), the Cartridge ball/stem assembly (CR), and Heater Set (HS) - are fully interchangeable and easily assembled for each specific application and quickly disassembled for easy cleaning, repair, or maintenance. Each part can be removed and exchanged in seconds, eliminating production down-time and significantly increasing productivity.

"Our new PICO xMOD offers the only tool-free release and installation of the Valve Seat assembly," explains Claude Bergeron, product line manager, Nordson EFD. "Wetted parts are conveniently and quickly exchanged and serviced. If a part fails, just the worn part needs changing, eliminating the expense of a whole new valve assembly. The ability to swap one xMOD component part for another lets the manufacturer toggle between different applications and fluids, offers flexibility, makes a significant reduction in production down time, and saves time and money."

Each EFD PICO xMOD component can be individually selected to accommodate particular fluids and applications. All the components are engineered to work together as a complete, integrated system that produces exceptionally fast, accurate deposits of a wide range of fluids.

Industries and Applications for PICO xMOD Dispense Valve include:
Wireless and Display
UV cure adhesives for bonding (camera modules, keypads, microspeakers, touch pads, and display edge sealing)
Hydrophobic fluids for protective treatments
COG (Chip on Glass) and TAB sealing
Electronics
UV adhesives on mobile speaker membranes
Fluxes and conformal coatings
Life Sciences/Medical Devices
Adhesives for bonding needles to hubs
Bonding of disposable medical device components
Automotive
Oil and grease dispensing on electrical connectors, gears, and other small part assemblies
Marking and color coding of parts with ink
UV adhesive to bond automotive electronic components

Nordson EFD's PICO xMOD uses the same precision and high quality parts as all Nordson EFD's PICO valves, maintaining the same high level of dispensing repeatability and precision, while also adding the various benefits of modular exchangeability.
