“Pistons are a very small, yet important part of a successful application,” Muccino said. “They prevent tunneling in thick fluids and allow better control of thin fluids for precise, repeatable dispensing outcomes.”
Nordson EFD manufactures six different types of Optimum® syringe barrel pistons designed to improve process control for different applications. Knowing which one to use and how to use it improves dispensing results to keep production running smoothly with less rework, rejects, and fluid waste.
