Nordson demonstrates its technology, people and service at FABTECH 2019.
By Christina Mahlenkamp
This year at FABTECH, Nordson is immersing visitors in what we call the Nordson experience. Whether you’re a longtime Nordson customer or you’re brand new to the finishing world, visit Nordson’s booth (B13018) to try out new products, meet our people and learn about service and training programs.
Perhaps most notably this year, we’re showing off new technology, and it’s not what you might expect.
At Nordson, innovation drives everything we do. Sometimes that technology changes the way our customers dispense coatings. This time, we’re ready to change the way customers manage their entire powder coating process, driving the factory of the future.
Customers want easy access to performance data. They want to be able to predict required maintenance and know when they’ll need to replace parts. They want to avoid downtime and make sure their equipment is running as well as it did the day it was installed.
The factory of the future brings that information to customers’ fingertips. Literally.
At FABTECH this year, Nordson will show customers how we’re bringing the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 to product finishing. It’s Nordson equipment expertise combined with the user experience consumers have come to expect of the tools they use not just at home, but at work, too.

Talk with Nordson experts
If you have an eye to the future, but need to make some smaller changes right now, don’t miss a chance to talk with our experts in the booth.

Check out Nordson’s full range of comprehensive customer support packages
The Nordson experience doesn’t stop once the sale closes. We want to help you become experts in your coating application.
Two opportunities we suggest all Nordson customers take advantage of are Nordson University, Nordson’s in-house training and development course, and our TrueBlue® Preventative Maintenance Program, a personalized regimen of system health assessments, preventative maintenance and on-the-job training that can keep your powder coating operation running like the day it was installed.
At FABTECH, you can register for an upcoming Nordson University session. After attending two days of hands-on workshops at Nordson’s campus in Amherst, Ohio, you’ll leave with a greater understanding of industrial coating, and an appreciation for new technology.
TrueBlue Preventative Maintenance Program is new to Nordson Industrial Coating Systems, helping powder customers maintain their equipment. Meet with a Nordson expert to talk about how you can maximize your productivity and protect your investment. More TrueBlue offerings will be added soon.
