Nordson EFD, with sales and service in over 33 countries, is an innovator and world-class manufacturer of precision fluid dispensing equipment for medical device assembly.

Since 1963, our customers find that precise, consistent application of cyanoacrylates, adhesives, epoxies, silicones, coatings and other medical assembly fluids helps them achieve a high degree of process control for critical applications involving catheters, cannulas, stents, test strips, pacemakers and surgical tools.

Since 1963, we have helped thousands of companies achieve:

  • Higher yields
  • Greater process control
  • Better product quality and reliability
  • Less rework & fewer rejects

Products include:

Nordson EFD’s PICO® xMOD™ dispense valve is a new, fully exchangeable, modular concept in non-contact and contact needle dispensing of assembly fluids.

Non-contact jet valve systems make it possible to apply fluids in volumes as small as 0.5 nanoliters at continuous speeds up to 500Hz. Because they do not contact the substrate, they are ideal for applying fluid in hard-to-access areas or onto uneven or delicate substrates where a dispensing needle cannot be used.

Each PICO xMOD component can be individually selected to accommodate particular fluids and applications. All the components are engineered to work together as a complete, integrated system that produces exceptionally fast, accurate deposits of a wide range of fluids.

EFD’s Optimum® Dispensing Components are designed as part of a complete, integrated system that improves yields and reduces costs by producing the most accurate, repeatable fluid deposits possible.

Our syringe barrels are molded from new materials that provide superior strength, exceptional clarity and chemical compatibility with a wide variety of assembly fluids.  Available in 3, 5, 10, 30 and 55 cc capacities. Our cartridges are available in 2.5 oz (75 ml), 6 oz (180 ml), 12 oz (360 ml), 20 oz (600 ml) and 32 oz (960 ml) capacities.

Matching pistons are available in five styles to ensure control for virtually any fluid in any application.  When fluid is dispensed, the close tolerance wiping action eliminates waste and residue.

Lightweight adapters are designed for fast attachment.  End caps provide a precision fit. Tip cap design simplifies attachment.

EFD’s high-quality dispensing tips are produced without burrs, molding flash or other imperfections that could affect the deposit accuracy. All tips feature color-coded SafetyLok™ hubs for easy size identification and safe, secure attachment to the syringe barrels.

All EFD Optimum dispensing components are produced silicone-free by Nordson EFD in the USA and are certified safe for industrial use.

Nordson EFD offers a wide selection of XYZ and XYZR robot systems that are fully compatible with EFD ValveMate™ valve controller systems. Consistent, accurate, repeatable and complex dispensing applications can be easily performed with Nordson EFD robots, with working envelopes that range from 200 x 200 x 50 mm to 500 x 600 x 150 mm.

Scara robot systems are also available for larger, heavier products or inline dispensing applications.

EFD’s product line also include our benchtop air-powered dispensers and automated dispense valve systems. Visit or call us at 800.556.3484 to discuss your application.
