This company, a Nordson company, recently introduced the xQR41 Series MicroDot™ needle valve. The valve reportedly features a 60% smaller form factor than NORDSON EFD: Needle Valvestandard valves, an exchangeable modular design for greater customization and process control, and a quick release clasp that can allow easy removal of the fluid body to replace wetted parts in seconds. The new valve reportedly can expand manufacturing opportunities for multiple applications and industries, especially those related to wireless devices, sensors, mobile phones, and other high-end electronics.

The valve’s small profile (66 mm length x 23.7 mm diameter) can enable multiple valves to be mounted closer together for greater output per batch, increasing production throughput. Applicable for automated assembly processes, the needle valve can dispense in tighter spaces and at more complex angles.
