“This year marks 50 years of commitment to developing innovative technologies
that help our global customers build their own products better, faster and
more cost-effectively,” according to Ken Forden, Nordson EFD Vice President

are a good example of our focus on understanding and anticipating the fluid
management needs of the companies and industries we serve. We more than
tripled their speed so they can operate continuously at up to 500 cycles per
second – making them the fastest piezoelectric valves in the industry. This

more product in less time than ever before.”
