Sponsored by Businesswire

, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN), the world’s leading
precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer, is pleased to introduce
its Contact
vs. Jet Dispensing
white paper.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:

As products continue to get smaller and smaller, Nordson EFD has
developed new solutions to address this growing need to apply precise,
repeatable micro-deposits of assembly fluids in production processes

“We understand the challenges manufacturers face when their process
requires bonding tiny substrates and components together,” said Peter
Langer, Business Unit Director of Valves at Nordson EFD. “The deposit
tolerance requirements are considerable. And there are a number of
variables to consider in order to choose the right dispensing method.”

This white
helps manufacturers understand the difference between two of
the most common dispensing methods. Contact
, for example, allows users to dispense extremely tiny
amounts of fluid consistently. The tradeoffs include slower cycle rates
and possible part damage due to the need for Z-axis movement of an
automated system.

benefits include highly precise, repeatable
micro-dispensing at speeds up to 1000Hz
. Jetting also meets exact deposit tolerances as small as
+/- 1%. Tradeoffs include the fact that some fluids, such as those
filled with highly-abrasive particles, cannot be jetted efficiently.

Getting an experienced fluid application specialist involved early in
the process of selecting a dispensing system can prevent many issues
that could occur later in production.
