Tapered Dispense Tips Provide Fast, Bubble-Free Application of Thick Assembly Fluids

March 28, 2006
EFD’s tapered dispense tips provide fast flow and minimize bubbles when dispensing thick or particle –filled fluids like epoxy, silicone and brazing paste. Precision molded polyethylene tips feature a tapered hubless design that provides smooth, unrestricted application of thick fluids and reduces rework and rejects by preventing the formation of bubbles that could cause variations in the size of fluid deposits. The color-coded tips are available in 6 sizes (0.060” to 0.010” ID) to handle a wide variety of fluids and applications. All sizes feature EFD’s double-threaded SafetyLok™ design for secure attachment without the risk of tips blowing off, especially when using higher dispensing pressures for thick fluids. Tips are available in two styles: UV-blocking translucent tips for benchtop applications, and rigid opaque tips for automated applications or light-sensitive fluids. Both styles are packaged in lint-free, see-through boxes of 50 that are lot numbered to simplify process control. EFD, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Nordson Corporation, the world’s leading producer of precision dispensing equipment. Nordson and EFD systems apply adhesives, sealants and other assembly fluids to a broad range of consumer and industrial products during manufacturing operations, helping customers meet quality and productivity targets.
