OptiMixer features a patent-pending design that is 20% shorter than comparable mixers on the market.

Nordson EFD, part of precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer Nordson, has developed a disposable square static mixer that can dispense two-part materials.

OptiMixer can improve product quality in assembly and repair processes in automotive, aerospace, construction, and maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) industries, the company says.

It features a patent-pending design that is 20% shorter than comparable mixers on the market, enabling operators to work closer to the application, making it easier to have more precise, repeatable dispensing of two-component sealants and adhesives. It also results in 30% less retained fluid.

OptiMixer can be attached to most large volume (> 200 ml) multi-ratio cartridges, including EFDs u-TAH, Side x Side, and Coaxial cartridges. It is suitable for dent repair, bumper repair, chemical anchoring, panel bonding, gasketing, insulation, crack injection, undercoating and installing fixture fasteners.

‘Using proprietary fluid simulation software, we have optimized the mixing capability of our new static mixer in a much shorter length without compromising performance,’ said Anthony Martucci, global product line manager, Nordson EFD. ‘Mix quality is critical to the performance of the adhesive bond.’
