Highly Versatile

A range of XY stages, with a 160mm XY stage as standard, meets a wide range of requirements. The image capture system for advanced analysis is quick to set-up and in close proximity to the test head aiding faster testing.

The standard 4000 Plus mainframe has a vertical working envelope of 120mm to meet the majority of application requirements however the Nordson DAGE 4000 Plus LE with an extended working envelope of 200mm is available for testing oversize parts.

Ultimate Step Back Accuracy

The 4000 Plus features the latest in bond testing technology, for example the anti-backlash system which aids setting and control of step back. Shear height can be set and maintained to single micron accuracy.

Data Correlation

Nordson DAGE recognizes that data correlation is fundamental for cross referencing test results between old and new platforms. Existing users of Nordson DAGE bond testers (4000 and 5000) can confidently compare data between old and new machines. Further, we know that many users collect data on the same product from multiple machines, either on the same site or even different sites, and need to be sure that the data will correlate with ultimate integrity given identical configurations and test parameters.

Intelligent Software

The 4000 Plus utilizes Paragon™ software which boasts a highly configurable and intuitive interface as well as a wide variety of advanced functionality such as automatic GR&R calculation, built-in diagnostics, a unique database search engine wizard and superior reporting.
