NORDSON EFD: Disposable Static Mixer
The OptiMixer™ is a new two-component disposable square static mixer that provides process control and efficiency in dispensing two-part materials. The static mixer can reportedly improve product quality in assembly and repair processes in automotive, aerospace, construction, and maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) industries.
The mixer features a patent-pending design that is reportedly 20% shorter than comparable mixers on the market, enabling operators to work closer to the application without sacrificing mix quality. This can allow for more precise, repeatable dispensing of two-component sealants and adhesives. It also can result in 30% less retained fluid, which reduces material waste while increasing job quality and productivity.
OptiMixer can be attached to most large volume (> 200 ml) multi-ratio cartridges, including EFD’s u-TAH™, Side x Side, and Coaxial cartridges. Its innovative design allows its use in a range of applications, such as dent repair, bumper repair, chemical anchoring, panel bonding, gasketing, insulation, crack injection, undercoating, and installing fixture fasteners.
“Using proprietary fluid simulation software, we have optimized the mixing capability of our new static mixer in a much shorter length without compromising performance,” said Anthony Martucci, global product line manager.
