Product miniaturisation gets a big help

25 May 2008

As medical devices, electronics, mobile phones and many other products continue to put more features into smaller packages, manufacturers need new ways to apply adhesives, coatings and other assembly fluids in smaller, more precise amounts than before.

At National Electronics Week, EFD, a subsidiary of Nordson, will be introducing its solution to this problem; the PicoDot jet dispensing system.

As PicoDot systems do not contact the substrate, they enable manufacturers to deposit controlled amounts of fluid on hard-to-access areas, uneven surfaces, or in applications where a conventional dispensing needle cannot be used; and at speeds up to 150 dots per second. Multiple PicoDot system configurations make it possible to dispense a wide variety of low (50-1000mPas), medium (50-200,000mPas), and high (1000-500,000mPas) viscosity fluids in a wide range of manufacturing applications.
