EFD: Programmable Dispenser

June 1, 2000
This company’s 2000XL-PR5 dispenser provides complete fluid control in critical medical-assembly operations where thin fluids like solvents and cyanoacrylates are applied. Typical uses include securing marker bands to heart catheters, attaching balloons to angioplasty catheters, and bonding medical-grade tubing and fittings. The unit’s precise adjustments for time and pressure provide a high degree of process control, and the digital readouts for all dispenser settings simplify process documentation. Once initial parameters have been set, consistent microdeposits as small as 0.008 inch can be produced.
