Nordson EFD Features New Jet Dispensing Technology at MD&M West, Booth #2835

The PICO Pµlse non-contact jet valve and touchscreen controller offer medical device companies greater dispensing capabilities for superior process control.

East Providence, RI USA – Nordson EFD, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN), the world's leading precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer, will feature its industry-leading piezoelectric PICO® Pµlse™ jet valve and Toµch™ controller at MD&M West in Anaheim, California on February 9-11, 2016 in Booth #2835. This non-contact jet dispensing technology combines superior control, speed, and accuracy with an easy-to-use, intuitive touchscreen interface to provide increased productivity, product quality, and profitability.

The PICO Pµlse jetting system's innovative design delivers best-in-market speed with extremely accurate, repeatable micro-deposits as small as 0.5 nL at 500Hz continuous, and bursts up to 1500Hz. Using the Toµch controller, operators can quickly and easily set precise dispensing parameters to meet the specific tolerances of their application's requirements.

Medical device OEMs in particular have benefitted from the ability to use an intuitive touchscreen interface to set specific ramp open and close parameters, stroke control parameters, and pulse time in increments ≥ 0.1 ms. By eliminating the barrier between speed and accuracy, the PICO Pµlse has enabled OEMs to experience greater efficiency, quality, and patient outcomes.

"Our goal in creating the PICO line was to innovate the next generation in piezoelectric non-contact jet dispensing technology, and that's precisely what we've done," said Claude Bergeron, Nordson EFD global product manager.

"The Toµch controller's intuitive interface gives manufacturers precise programming of the PICO Pµlse valve setup parameters to dispense the most accurate deposits at faster cycle rates. For our customers that means reduced waste and maintenance costs, increased profitability, and the confidence that they'll stay on the leading edge amidst changing market demands," Bergeron said.

Nordson EFD application specialists will be at the booth to answer any questions about our PICO line and other fluid dispensing technologies, such as our Ultimus™ V benchtop dispenser, Optimum® line of syringe barrel reservoirs and dispense tips, contact dispense valves, and semi-automation options. They will be assisting customers in evaluating the best system to meet their specific requirements.
