Nordson EFD Features New Jet Dispensing Technology at MD&M West

Reading time ( words)

Nordson EFD, a Nordson company, 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.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
