Nordson is the world's leading manufacturer of fluid dispensing and powder dispensing systems, as well as technology-based systems for surface treatment and curing, and equipment to manufacture nonwoven fibers. With unmatched technological expertise and a global support system, Nordson has helped medical device manufacturers worldwide to improve the accuracy, reliability and cost-efficiency of their operations.
In the life sciences industry alone, we've worked with more than 1,000 companies, designing process solutions that meet the unique requirements of these high-technology markets. From assembling medical devices to coating pharmaceuticals, Nordson provides the tools to make your processes run smoother, faster and more cost-effectively.
Nordsons' EFD systems are widely used in the assembly of medical devices. For years, manufacturers have used our bench-top dispensing systems to bond together pacemakers, catheters, blood filters and many other devices associated with dialysis, anesthesia delivery, ventilators, respirators and disposables. In addition, our automated valves apply precise, minute amounts of cyanoacrylates, UV-cure adhesives and two-part epoxies for needle-hub bonding, syringe assembly and catheter manufacturing.
Many medical device manufacturers also employ Nordson's hot melt adhesive dispensing systems in their operations. These reliable systems bring speed, precision and cost-efficiency to the assembly of many products, including kidney dialysis equipment, ostomy bags and blood filters. Nordson also supplies systems for surface modification of medical devices using plasma and for UV curing.
High reliability and reproducibility are also crucial in the manufacture of medical devices. Manufacturing challenges include the ability to effectively bond non-compatible materials (e.g., Teflon® to plastic), apply coatings to hydrophobic materials with low wettability characteristics, and contamination removal. Plasma systems from March provide processes to increase bond strength, wettability, hydrophobicity and biocompatibility. Plasma cleaning removes organic materials that prohibit desired bond strength.
As new coatings are developed and win regulatory approval, trust Nordson to provide accurate, reliable application equipment to dispense them. EFD, a Nordson subsidiary, offers a complete line of low-volume, low-pressure spray valves to coat various medical devices, including drug-eluting stents, prosthetics, guide wires and medical syringes. These valves are also used to apply a variety of protein solutions to point-of-care test strips.
As always, Nordson holds its products to the highest quality standards. Our experts will work with you to design a system that meets your specific needs. From concept to completion, our team stays with you to assure your satisfaction and productivity.
