EFD(R) Introduces Optimum(TM) Dispensing Cartridges



    Engineered Fluid Dispensing Systems increase throughput, improve yields,
and reduce production costs

    EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I., November 13 /CNW/ - EFD, Inc., a subsidiary of
Nordson Corporation (NASDAQ:   NDSN), introduces the new Optimum Cartridge
System, the new addition to their Optimum family of dispensing components.

    EFD's new Optimum cartridges have been designed as a complete, integrated
system that provides significant advantages over what is currently available
in the marketplace today.

    Optimum cartridges feature a new design and construction that eliminate
the costly waste that occurs from cracking and splitting with competitive
products. They are made of a new polypropylene resulting in exceptional
clarity that allows the user to easily identify trapped air or contaminants
that could affect production results. The proprietary ZeroDraft(TM) design
ensures that the internal diameter of the cartridge is consistent from top to
bottom, with no variations that could affect process results.

    During use, cartridges are secured in new, see-through ergonomic
retainers that permit easy visual confirmation of fluid levels. Backward
compatibility has been maintained to allow Optimum cartridges to be used with
most retainers on the market today.

    The new Optimum cartridges are available in clear and light-blocking
configurations. Capacities include 2.5 oz (75ml), 6 oz (180ml), 12 oz (360ml)
and 20 oz (600ml). All components are patent pending.

    Optimum pistons are engineered and molded to mate perfectly with the
cartridge walls. Their consistent dimensions and fit prevent leakage during
filling and storage, and the precision wiping edge eliminates waste as fluid
is dispensed, further reducing production costs.

    Cartridge end caps feature a new pushbutton design that provides an
air-tight seal at the top of the cartridge, while threaded; self-venting
outlet caps prevent leaks and keep air from being introduced into the fluid.

    EFD, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Nordson Corporation. Since 1963
EFD has designed and manufactured precision dispensing devices for applying
controlled amounts of the adhesives, sealants, lubricants and other assembly
fluids used in almost every manufacturing process. EFD's products are
available through their worldwide network operating in over 30 countries.
