Micro dispensing with xQR41V Needle Valve
14 May 2019
The valve features a 60% smaller form factor than standard valves, an exchangeable, modular design for greater customization and process control, and a patent-pending Quick Release (QR) clasp to replace wetted parts in seconds.
With a smaller profile of 64 mm length x 23.7 mm diameter (2.50” x 0.93”), operators can mount several xQR41V needle valves close together for greater output per batch.
Ideal for automated assembly processes, the smaller form factor makes it easier to dispense in tight spaces and at more complex angles. It also results in a smaller wetted path, resulting in less retained fluid volume, which minimizes fluid waste.
The design of the xQR41V makes it suitable for use with all Nordson EFD dispensing tips, including general purpose and SmoothFlow™ tapered tips.
Its modularity allows it to be configured with a BackPack™ valve actuator or low-profile mounting block and 90° or straight fluid inlet fittings so operators can adjust the valve to meet different application requirements. The BackPack actuator allows high-speed cycle rates exceeding 60-80Hz. Modular parts are available pre-installed on new valves or can be ordered separately to retrofit onto existing valves.
