EFD(R) Announces New Auger Valve System

    Ensures Accurate Fluid Control for Higher Yields, Less Waste, Reduced

    EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I., March 7 /CNW/ - EFD, Inc., a Nordson company,
announces the Auger Valve System.

    Auger Valves are available in:

    --  Brush and brushless motor configurations

    --  Fixed head version for lines and stripes

    --  Sliding head / footed tip assemblies to compensate for surface
planarity irregularities and provide consistent dispense gap height for

    --  Micro-adjust foot usable with disposable tips. Adjustable for both
standoff height and foot position.

    --  8-pitch and 16-pitch auger assemblies


    --  ValveMate(TM) Controller that regulates the feed pressure, dispense
time and auger speed

    --  Ultra(R) Dispensing Tip Kit for maximum fluid control

    --  Optional Ultra(R) TT, XYZ Dispensing Robot is available as a tabletop

    --  EFD's SolderPlus(R) pre-filled solder syringe barrels or cartridges.

    By combining screw-feed principles with precise time and dispensing
controls, the auger valve system provides accurate, repeatable deposits of
thick, particle filled fluids. Additionally, the system offers precise control
of very small deposits with the use of a sliding head for machine over-travel
and micro-adjustable gap control featuring a contacting foot.

    The Auger Valves are designed to be used with the ValveMate Controller
(for brush style motors only) or the Ultra TT Dispensing Robot (for all auger
series valve control). During operation, air pressure is applied to the
syringe and the particle-filled fluid moves into the path of the auger. As the
auger rotates the material moves along the threads and out to the dispensing
tips. The ValveMate Controller regulates the feed pressure so that there is
enough pressure to keep the valve primed with material without forcing it past
the auger while controlling the dispense time and the auger speed.

    "The system is designed to make precise, repeatable deposits of
particle-filled materials, solder pastes, silver epoxies and thermal greases,"
states Peter Lambert, President of EFD. "The fast, tool-free release of wetted
fluid path components, combined with the adjustable foot design makes this a
unique and user friendly system."

    EFD's new Auger Valve System is available through their worldwide network
operating in over 30 countries. For more information, contact EFD at
