Nordson EFD, a Nordson company and the world’s leading precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer, announces that its sustainable Film-Pak® cartridge for packaging and dispensing two-part fluids has been nominated for Product of the Year by Assembly Magazine.
This is the inaugural year for the New Products Award program created for The ASSEMBLY Show, which takes place October 23-25, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois. There are 12 nominees in a variety of product categories ranging from industrial fluid packaging to automated assembly systems. During the show attendees will vote for their favorite new product through the event mobile app. Attendees can see Film-Pak at Nordson EFD Booth #531 during the show.
“It’s an honor just to be nominated by the Assembly Magazine editors,” said Stephen Suchanek, Global 2K Product Line Manager, Nordson EFD.
“Film-Pak truly is next-generation fluid packaging. It provides the same quality mix performance as standard cartridges, but with one crucial difference — it reduces packaging waste volume by more than 85%.”
Film-Pak uses proprietary film-based technology that compresses into a uniquely-designed lid as the cartridge is emptied. Only the lid is thrown out after the fluid is dispensed. In fact, seven fully-collapsed Film-Pak cartridge lids replace one traditional cartridge in landfills.
In addition, Film-Pak is compatible with most two-component static mixers, dispense guns, and spray systems. Specialized dispense guns designed with built-in Film-Pak retainers are also available.
