Nordson EFD Offers New Manual, Pneumatic, and Cordless Guns for Dispensing Two-Component Adhesive Materials
Press release date: April 29, 2014
East Providence, RI USA -- Nordson EFD, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN), the world's leading precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer, introduces a new line of manual, pneumatic, and cordless guns for dispensing two-component adhesives. The guns make dispensing even the thickest materials easier and less cumbersome. A 26:1 thrust ratio enables a lighter touch to dispense more material with each trigger pull. The dispensing guns are ergonomic, lightweight, and easy to load with a unique secured snap feature. They dispense two-component materials for applications such as injection into cracks, concrete anchoring, fixturing, windshield installation/replacement, and bumper repair in markets such as construction, automotive aftermarket, and aerospace.
Nordson EFD has recently established a relationship with Albion to supply the guns, broadening Nordson EFD's product offering. The dispensing guns come in a wide variety of sizes, two-component ratio options, and loading capabilities.
"I am very excited to have Albion as our cartridge gun supplier," said Anthony Martucci, product line manager, Nordson EFD. "I have always admired the Albion business both as a customer of ours and as a knowledgeable source of information for the two-component market. These tools offer legendary quality and state-of-the-art engineering which will assure optimal performance of EFD cartridges, mixers, and other products for the end user."
These new dispense guns have a longer tool life. In general, as tools get old, they can wear out and replacements must be ordered. Nordson EFD's manual line of dispense guns have an adjustment screw that enables the drive system to be tightened, extending the tool's life and eliminating wasted motion. In addition, double grip plates and a steel trigger protect the drive system if the gun is dropped.
The pneumatic guns, which are activated by air pressure, are rated up to 120 psi operating pressure. The handle on top of the air cylinder enables easy, user-friendly maneuvering of the gun. A button just above the trigger lets the user toggle between forward and backward piston rod travel with a quick finger movement.
The cordless guns come with a reliable Milwaukee 18 volt lithium ion battery. The gun is lightweight and, like the pneumatic gun, it has a handle above the drive mechanism. The battery has a digital display that shows the charge level. These guns also feature a speed control dial on the drive mechanism, which assures that the adhesive is dispensed with the proper speed.
