Nordson EFD, a Nordson company, the world's leading precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer, introduces innovative piezoelectric jetting technology that removes the barrier between speed and accuracy. EFD's new PICO Pµlse valve and PICO Toµch controller make it possible to dispense very exact, repeatable micro-deposits as small as 0.5 nL at up to 500Hz continuous, with 1500Hz maximum bursts - an industry best.
The PICO Pµlse non-contact jet valve's modular design makes it possible to jet low- to high-viscosity fluids onto any surface, including uneven and tough-to-reach substrates. Exchangeable parts provide versatility, making the valve adaptable to a wider range of applications, so it can meet changing production demands. Its innovative tool-free latch mechanism allows for easy removal of the fluid body for faster serviceability and maintenance - reducing downtime and increasing productivity. Variable stroke, improved close time, and faster full stroke open time makes Pµlse one of the most robust jet dispensing valves on the market.
Innovative Jet Dispensing System
The PICO Toµch controller features an easy-to-use intuitive touch screen interface for precise control of the PICO Pµlse valve. Users can set extremely precise operating parameters, such as ramp open and close, and stroke control to fine-tune dispensing performance. Pulse time can be adjusted in increments as small as .01 ms. Better slope control delivers more repeatable deposits while preventing turbulence and air bubbles from entering the fluid - preventing deposit variation.
"The PICO Toµch controller's intuitive touch screen interface allows precise programming of the PICO Pµlse valve setup parameters to give customers a vastly improved jetting solution," said Claude Bergeron, global product manager, Nordson EFD. "As a leader in innovative jet dispensing systems, EFD is dedicated to working closely with manufacturers to provide the best process control possible."
"Our goal is to provide equipment that dispenses the most accurate deposits at faster cycle rates, with less fluid waste and easier maintenance, to increase bottom-line profitability and help our customers stay ahead of changing market demands," Bergeron said. "Our new PICO line does exactly that and more."
