Nordson EFD’s New ValveMate 9000 Precision Valve Controller Offers Next Generation Dispense Valve Functionality

EFD, a Nordson company (NASDAQ:NDSN),
the world’s leading precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer,
introduces the new ValveMate™ 9000 state-of-the-art precision valve
controller. The intricate microprocessor circuitry ensures the
dispensing of precise, accurate, and repeatable amounts of the
adhesives, lubricants, and other assembly fluids used in many of today’s
advanced products, such as medical devices, automotive components, and
portable electronics. The ValveMate 9000 incorporates advanced features
such as Auto-Increment mode that adjusts dispensing parameters after a
certain number of shots or a specific elapsed time.
The ValveMate 9000 offers independent dual-valve control programming,
each with 24 watt temperature controllers for J-type thermocouples. Each
channel can drive a remote high-speed solenoid valve up to 500Hz. At
such fast dispense speeds, the high voltage can potentially damage the
dispense system, so the ValveMate 9000 incorporates a clever solution
with a unique spike-and-hold functionality. When properly set, the
spike-and-hold function allows the controller to spike the voltage for a
user-specified spike time and then throttle the voltage down to a
user-specified hold voltage after the spike time expires.
In addition, two electronic pressure regulators (EPRs) provide stability
in the fluid reservoir by maintaining consistent dispensing with
full-to-empty pressure control. This allows the system to compensate for
periodically changing conditions, such as fluid viscosity changes, and
can be used to alter the dispensing patterns and create deposits of
Unlike existing controllers, the ValveMate 9000 offers the ability to
remotely program the set-up parameters of the dispense station from the
host PC or programmable logic controller (PLC). This feature enables
adjustments to be made quickly and easily on-the-fly, without stopping
the production line.
controllers offer an extremely accurate and cost-effective way to
regulate the dispensing cycle and keep assembly lines running at maximum
efficiency, without the need for time-consuming programming or
mechanical adjustments that require the production line to be shut
down,” said Claude Bergeron, EFD global product line manager. “The
benefits of controlled fluid dispensing include higher yields, greater
process control, better quality, less rework, fewer rejects, and lower

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years?
This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things.
And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage.
Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.
