Industry’s Fastest Piezoelectric Jet Valves
- Created: Friday, 01 March 2013
Nordson EFD, East Providence, RI, has more than tripled the speed of its PICO™ series of piezoelectric jet dispensing systems— from 150Hz (cycles per second) up to an industry-leading continuous 500Hz, making the new and improved versions the fastest piezoelectric valves available to the global manufacturing community. PICO systems are used to apply adhesives, lubricants, and other assembly fluids in amounts as small as 2 nanoliters. They are ideal for applying precise amounts of fluid on uneven surfaces or products with small components, tight tolerances, or hard-to-access areas, such as medical devices.
