Nordson EFD Wins Golden Mousetrap and Service Excellence Awards
Nordson EFD, a Nordson company, has recently been honored with both the Golden Mousetrap Award and the Service Excellence Award (SEA). The Golden Mousetrap Award was presented for Nordson EFD's Square Wave™ 745NC high speed, non-contact dispense valve for the photovoltaic (PV) industry, while the SEA recognized Nordson EFD for excellence in the crucial area of customer service.

The Square Wave 745NC was developed to apply controlled amounts of liquid flux to the narrow solder-coated metal ribbon that is used to connect adjoining PV wafers. Its accurate, controlled flux application prevents flux residue from collecting on light-absorbing cell surfaces, reducing their power-generating capability.

"This year marks 50 years of EFD commitment to developing innovative technologies that help our global customers make superior products," said Ken Forden, Nordson EFD vice president and general manager. "Winning the Golden Mousetrap Award is a testament to the innovation of our people who consistently strive to solve the dispensing challenges of our customers, and the Service Excellence Award supports our worldwide reputation as a customer-focused organization. We are truly grateful for this recognition."

The annual Golden Mousetrap Award is sponsored by Design News magazine and is presented for products judged by the Design News editors to be innovative, exceptional, and cutting-edge. The award was presented at the Pacific Design & Manufacturing Show in Anaheim, CA.
