Apr 03, 2013

Nordson EFD, a Nordson company (Nasdaq: NDSN), will celebrate its 50th anniversary throughout 2013 with participation in numerous North American and international trade shows, a global advertising and public relations campaign, and special customer incentive programs.

Thousands of manufacturers throughout the world use the company's dispensing equipment to apply controlled amounts of the adhesives, lubricants and other fluids used to assemble a wide variety of products, ranging from small medical devices to mobile phones to commercial aircraft.

"This year marks 50 years of commitment to developing innovative technologies that help our global customers build their own products better, faster and more cost-effectively," according to Ken Forden, Nordson EFD Vice President and General Manager. "The recent enhancements to our PICO™ dispensing systems are a good example of our focus on understanding and anticipating the fluid management needs of the companies and industries we serve. We more than tripled their speed so they can operate continuously at up to 500 cycles per second - making them the fastest piezoelectric valves in the industry. This will help high-volume manufacturers who run their production lines 24/7 make more product in less time than ever before."
