Nordson EFD’s new Backpack Valve Actuator can help companies produce more products in less time by cycling select EFD dispense valves 2-3 times faster than previously possible. In addition, the faster valve actuation allows production of the smaller fluid deposits required in assembling many of today’s advanced products, such as medical devices and portable electronics.

Incorporating advanced miniature solenoid technology, the Backpack mounts the solenoid used to open and close the valve directly on the valve’s air cylinder, rather than on a separate fixture.This makes it possible to achieve valve actuation speeds as short as 5-6 milliseconds and cycle rates as high as 800 per min. In contrast, typical valve actuation speeds and cycle rates are 15 milliseconds and 400 cycles.
