New Nordson EFD Performus X Series Fluid Dispensers are Built Tough for Industrial Use

05 Mar 2018

Ideal for syringe barrel dispensing of glue, oil, grease, epoxy, cyanoacrylate, solder paste, and other assembly fluids, the new benchtop fluid dispensers deliver reliable performance.

East Providence, RI USA – March 5, 2018 – Nordson EFD, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN), the world’s leading precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer, introduces Performus™ X Series fluid dispensers that deliver reliable benchtop dispensing control for general applications in the electronics, life science, consumer goods, and automotive industries. The new air-powered (or pneumatic) fluid dispensers reduce production costs and improve yields through controlled application of assembly fluids dispensed using syringe barrels and reduced operator-to-operator variability.

The Performus X100 features a 0-100 psi (0-7 bar) pressure regulator for applying low- to high-viscosity fluids such as glue, oil, grease, silicone, sealant, cyanoacrylate, UV-cure adhesives, and dispensing paste such as SolderPlus® solder paste. The Performus X15 features a 0-15 psi (0-1 bar) pressure regulator for greater control when dispensing low-viscosity or thin fluids such as solvents.

“Our new Performus X Series combines the top features from the Performus line in terms of ease of use, reliability, and performance,” said Vlad Konopelko, Global Product Line Manager ─ Dispensers, Nordson EFD. “Design improvements include metal housing for increased physical protection, making the units more durable for industrial assembly applications. We also made the units easier to service in post-warranty scenarios.”

The housing also acts as a faraday cage for improved EMI/RFI protection, and the unit features a chassis connection for grounding to shunt leakage current and enhance system electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection.

In addition, both the Performus X100 and Performus X15 feature a Steady, Timed, and Teach mode of operation. The Teach function makes it simple to program the time required for the desired fluid deposit amount. Vacuum control keeps thin fluids from dripping between cycles. The dispensers feature digital time and pressure display, and can easily switch between psi and bar units of measurement. A comprehensive selection of replacement parts make the units easy to maintain and service in the field. Performus X100 and X15 also feature an I/O connection and universal power supply.
