Nordson Corp. – a Westlake, Ohio-based producer of precision dispensing equipment, and a
manufacturer of electronic equipment used for testing and inspecting electronic components and
technology-based systems for curing and surface treatment processes – has introduced the Nordson®
PS metering station, a system designed to add adhesive streams to existing melter systems or to act
as a booster pump to compensate for high pressure/volume losses. According to the company, the
station maintains consistent pressure with high-viscosity materials such as butyls and when feeding
several adhesive streams concurrently.
The PS metering station has a compact layout that enables adhesive supply to be set as close
to the point of application as possible. It also offers an optional circulation port with
recirculating applicators for accurate intermittent applications, eliminating hammerheads and
inconsistent beads. A variety of adhesives can be applied at processing temperatures up to 250ºC or
pressure up to 250 bar.
Nordson offers the PS metering station in two layout versions with one to four pumps,
depending on output capacity. It may be integrated into a Nordson engineered system or retrofitted
into existing production lines. The system is suitable for product assembly applications including
textile production, filter, automotive and solar manufacturing.
