Nordson EFD’s New ValveMate 9000 Precision Valve Controller Offers Next Generation Dispense Valve Functionality
|By Business Wire

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

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
