Automotive suppliers and manufacturers worldwide specify Nordson EFD precision dispensing systems to consistently apply adhesives, sealants, grease, inks and other fluids during their assembly processes.

Many of the high-performance fluids needed to bond materials and seal exposed parts are expensive, making waste reduction an important issue. In many applications, the elimination of over-deposits can reduce material waste by 50% or more. Nordson EFD systems are designed to empty material reservoirs as completely as possible, minimizing waste. The closed-system design also reduces waste by minimizing premature curing of the materials.

When fluids are dispensed consistently, regardless of the operator or machine assembling parts, manufacturers are able to achieve better control and streamline production, reducing labor time and rework.

Cleaner application with Nordson EFD systems means less time and cost for cleanup. Many Nordson EFD customers are able to double their output while maintaining—and even increasing—the quality of their products.

Applications include:

  • Bonding rubber to rubber, weather stripping, mirror assemblies and shock absorbers
  • Marking for pass/fail status, color-coding similar assemblies and indicating whether a specific test or process has been completed
  • Greasing and lubricating springs, tracks, hinges and hardware, as well as lubricating caliper plungers in brake assemblies
  • Potting and sealing electronics and components from moisture and other environmental damage
  • Lubricating stock, dies and rolls in fin forming applications
