Nordson EFD has introduced a new line of manual, pneumatic and cordless guns for dispensing two-component adhesives. The guns make dispensing even the thickest materials easier and less cumbersome. A 26:1 thrust ratio enables a lighter touch to dispense more material with each trigger pull. The dispensing guns are ergonomic, lightweight and easy to load with a unique secured snap feature. They dispense two-component materials for applications such as injection into cracks, concrete anchoring, fixturing, windshield installation/replacement, and bumper repair in markets such as construction, automotive aftermarket, and aerospace.
These new guns have a longer tool life. In general, as tools get old, they can wear out and replacements must be ordered. Nordson EFD's manual line of dispensing guns have an adjustment screw that enables the drive system to be tightened, extending the tool's life and eliminating wasted motion. In addition, double grip plates and a steel trigger protect the drive system if the gun is dropped.
The pneumatic guns, which are activated by air pressure, are rated up to 120 psi operating pressure. The handle on top of the air cylinder enables easy, user-friendly maneuvering of the gun. A button just above the trigger lets the user toggle between forward and backward piston rod travel with a quick finger movement.
The cordless guns come with a reliable Milwaukee 18 volt lithium ion battery. The gun is lightweight and, like the pneumatic gun, it has a handle above the drive mechanism.
