Nordson EFD has released the UltimusPlus-NX fluid dispenser. This fluid dispenser provides Ethernet connection with Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) for Smart Factory and Industry 4.0 manufacturing integration.
“UltimusPlus-NX offers unmatched functionality. Its ability to be 100% remotely managed while also capturing dispense process data are a few of its unique selling points,” said Ahmed Khan, Product Line Manager, Nordson EFD. “These features will allow our customers to be more lean, more efficient, and have improved cost of ownership for their processes.”
The UltimusPlus-NX fluid dispenser allows operators to control all dispensing parameters directly from a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) or other manufacturing plant controller.
“This also allows users to scrutinize current processes and make decisions to further improve them, which is something that has never been offered before,” Khan said. “This technology is our effort to bring you two of the most important elements for future manufacturing processes: connectivity and data.”
In addition, the dispensing parameters can be accessed from a tablet, personal computer (PC), or mobile device using a remote interface. This provides added convenience by allowing users to access and adjust program parameters from any location.
