Expertise in Chocolate Industry Transferable to a Variety of Customer Applications
ME NewsWire / Business Wire
EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I - Tuesday, October 8th 2013
Nordson EFD, a Nordson company (NASDAQ:NDSN), the world’s leading precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer, is working with a growing number of customers who are dispensing pre-heated chocolate with its Performus® dispensers and other EFD dispensing equipment. As the holiday season approaches, many manufacturers are gearing up for high-volume production and the need for precision dispensing systems becomes more apparent.
Conventional chocolate decorating processes are extremely labor intensive, relying on the user to manually repeat the exact deposit sizes needed for the specific application. This leads to higher cost and lower production efficiency. When the Nordson EFD Performus is incorporated into the production process, chocolate manufacturers are able to consistently dispense precise amounts of pre-heated colored chocolate in an assembly line to create the additional layer of detail found in complex figures. The Perfomus dispensers offer a range of operator controls, including a digital timer, vacuum control to prevent fluid dripping, and a variety of pressure regulators that meet the dispensing requirements used in the food industry.
Nordson EFD equipment has also had similar success with the following food-related applications:
Precise injection of liquors into chocolate
Consistent dispensing of toppings and glazes
Accurate mold lubrication, such as spraying cooking oil
Efficient lubrication of blades and cutters during cutting operations
"As Nordson EFD expands its product line, we are discovering more applications through working closely with our customers,” states Eric Meul, European business development director. "To date, our valves can be found in the most diverse food applications -- dispensing oil to act as a preservative in sardine cans, spraying aroma in chewing gum, and as a release agent in the high-volume baking process. We are excited to find new opportunities within the food and beverage industry.”
