Nordson EFD helps medical manufacturers meet growing demand for COVID-19 treatment and diagnostic devices
From ventilator sub-assemblies to diagnostic test kits, Nordson EFD is putting medical manufacturers’ needs first with rapid response and delivery.
A robotic system integrator contacted Nordson EFD looking to order multiple automated dispensing systems to mass produce a small sub-assembly inside Ventec Life Systems’ unique ventilators.
Ventec’s critical care ventilators are portable and can provide front-line medical professionals with the tools they need to fight COVID-19. Ventec also manufactures VOCSN, the first and only Multi-Function Ventilator.
The sub-assembly application required bonding two components together using a UV-cure acrylic. Nordson EFD recommended its E3 automated dispensing systems and Performus X100 fluid dispensers for fast, easy setup and programming.
“Four robots left three days after the customer contacted us,” said Daniel J. Marco, application specialist at Nordson EFD. “It was great rush service from Nordson EFD. The next five robots were built and shipped the following week.”
Other high-priority applications include jetting medical reagents onto diagnostic test strips and bonding the housing of test cards for COVID-19 test kits. Nordson EFD recommended the PICO Pµlse jetting system for these applications due to its fast dispensing speed and unparalleled precision.
