East Providence, RI USA — Nordson EFD, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN), the world's leading precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer, will be demonstrating several fluid dispensing techniques to improve medical device assembly and laboratory processes at MD&M East, in booth #2021.

On display will be Nordson EFD's PICO® xMOD exchangeable modular valve mounted on a 4-axis robot demonstrating needle hub bonding. All parts of this valve can be easily and quickly exchanged and replaced, reducing downtime. The system operates at unprecedented speeds of up to 500Hz with excellent process control for high dot-to-dot consistency.

Nordson EFD's 754V aseptic dispense valve mounted on a 3-axis robot simulating filling vials with reagent will also be displayed. This valve features a smooth fluid flow path that is free of any entrapment areas. FDA-compliant wetted parts make the valve suitable for clean-in-place and sterilize-in-place medical assembly processes. 

In addition, Nordson EFD is honored to be a finalist for the Medical Design Excellence Award (MDEA). The winners are being announced at a ceremony being held during MD&M East. Nordson EFD was recognized for designing and supplying the Digit Power dispenser, which is being used by Dentsply International, LD Caulk Division, to manufacture the Aquasil Ultra Cordless tissue managing impression system. The MDEA competition is the MedTech industry's premier awards program. It fosters innovation by honoring the highest caliber medical devices on the market today.

"Being recognized with Dentsply Caulk as an MDEA Finalist is a great honor for us," stated Craig Blum, Nordson EFD business manager - Fluid Formulators. "This device was the result of a great collaboration between our two companies. Dentsply supplied the idea of what they wanted to accomplish and we used our expertise to design a device that would get them there. This product has already been well-received in the dental market, so the buzz created by this honor will help drive more awareness of what it can do for the dentist. It is just one example of how Nordson EFD works with customers to customize a specific solution for their dispensing requirements."

MDM East is being held June 10-12, 2014 at Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, New York, NY.
