Abstract

Stuck nozzles will continue to cause defects until they are manually unstuck and properly reseated. This can be many hours and defects later. Lines are shut down as maintenance crews spend valuable production time checking the 120 nozzles used by the CP6s. The object of this publication is to outline a system that detects stuck nozzles and automatically stops the machine before defects occur.
