16 Dec 2010

East Providence, RI -- Nordson EFD (Nasdaq: NDSN) has introduced two new products designed to increase output and profitability for manufacturers in the estimated $10 billion* product assembly market.

The new ValveMate™ 7100 and ValveMate™ 7140 dispense valve controllers use Nordson EFD’s latest dispensing technology to apply accurate, repeatable amounts of the adhesives, lubricants and other fluids used to assemble many of today’s advanced products, such as medical devices and portable electronics. Major markets include the life science, electronics and automotive industries.

The two new controllers are designed for single-valve installations.

For multi-valve applications, Nordson EFD offers the ValveMate™ 8000 Valve Controller, which can operate up to four dispense valves, and the ValveMate™ 8040 Spray Valve Controller, which can operate up to two spray valves.

Thousands of manufacturers around the world use Nordson EFD dispense valves to improve their automated and semi-automated fluid dispensing processes. Valve controllers offer an extremely accurate and cost-effective way to regulate the dispensing cycle and keep assembly lines running at maximum speed, without the need for time-consuming programming or mechanical adjustments that require the production line to be shut down.

Nordson EFD designs and manufactures precision dispensing devices for applying controlled amounts of the adhesives, sealants, lubricants and other assembly fluids used in almost every manufacturing process. Nordson EFD products are available through a worldwide network operating in over 30 countries.
