EFD(R) Introduces Optimum(TM) Product Line



    The New Standard--Engineered Fluid Dispensing

    EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I., November 12 /CNW/ - EFD, Inc., a subsidiary of
Nordson Corporation (NASDAQ:   NDSN), introduces the new Optimum Component
Product Line.

    In developing Optimum, EFD has taken a new approach and employed
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software to engineer a new, comprehensive
family of disposable components that bring fluid dispensing and filling
processes to a higher level of reliability to meet the stringent demands of
today's cutting edge manufacturing processes.

    By ensuring that the same amount of material is dispensed on every part,
every time, EFD systems improve product quality and reduce waste, rework and
process variations, which helps companies lower their production costs while
increasing throughput and profitability.

    Optimum Components Available:

    --  Syringe Barrels - Provide even, laminar flow of watery low viscosity
fluids to thick viscous materials during both the filling and dispensing
processes. The internal CFD- enhanced geometry eliminates any opportunity for
"dead spots" that could trap air bubbles during filling or dispensing.

    --  Pistons - Revolutionary new design channels fluid during the filling
process to eliminate air entrapment. Precision molded to mate perfectly with
syringe barrels and wipe them clean as fluid is dispensed, eliminating costly
waste and simplifying disposal.

    --  Adapters, End Caps and Tip Caps -The Optimum adapter installs easily
and incorporates a safety feature that eliminates the chance of accidental
blow-off. The new end cap incorporates a unique pushbutton for error-free
attachment and an air-tight seal. Tip caps have a special venting feature to
ensure that no air is pushed into the fluid during the installation process.

    --  Compatibility -Backwards compatibility has been maintained to ensure
that the Optimum system may be used with existing mounting fixtures, adapters
and EFD's extensive line of precision dispensing tips.

    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.
