These components are designed specifically for precision fluid applications used in manufacturing mobile devices, wearables, medical devices, fiber optics, automobile electronics, and other products.
The new ESD-safe (aka electrostatic dissipative) dispensing components provide the highly accurate, consistent, and repeatable micro-deposits required as electronic devices shrink in size with an increasing density of electronic components.
Nordson EFD’s Optimum ESD-Safe dispensing components prevent static buildup that can damage fragile substrates, such as semiconductors and printed circuit boards – minimizing costly rejects in the electronics manufacturing process.
The new ESD-safe line includes:
- 27-gauge SmoothFlow™ tapered tips for dispensing micro-deposits of high-viscosity fluids
- 3cc, 5cc, 10cc, 30cc, and 55cc black syringe barrels
- Adapter assemblies available in all sizes
These new components are an addition to our current ESD-safe offering, which includes:
- 18-gauge, 20-gauge, and 25-gauge SmoothFlow tapered dispensing tips
- 30-gauge general purpose dispensing tips for high-to-low viscosity fluids
- 33-gauge chamfered dispensing tips for low-viscosity fluids
All of our new ESD-safe components are made from an inert, non-carbon, non-surface-migratory material that’s safe to use with sensitive fluids. They meet industry standards for electrostatic dissipative components, including a static decay rate of less than 2.0 seconds and surface resistivity of less than 1 x 10^12 ohm/sq. These standards ensure static will not be transferred while dispensing.
“As component densities become smaller, it is becoming even more critical for finer, repeatable dispensing that is ESD-safe for electronic manufacturing to prevent costly rework, rejects, and operator safety concerns,” said Brian Dodier, Global Product Line Manager – Dispensing Components, Nordson EFD.
The entire Optimum ESD-Safe line is also certified safe for industrial use and manufactured in silicone-free facilities in the U.S.
Other benefits of the Optimum line include:
- Dispensing tips free of flash and burrs for repeatable, accurate deposits
- Syringe barrels featuring Zero Draft™ walls that prevent blow-by
- Zero taper syringe barrels for consistent full-to-empty dispensing
- Stringent tolerance and quality standards for the most reliable results
